    James,

    Nobody is suggesting that you let the camera decide what is in focus. The cinematographer decides what is in focus and the AF's job is to keep it in focus. These systems whilst quite smart...

    Be afraid. Be very afraid

    I have just finished running a series of tests on a preproduction model of the Sony FX9 and surprisingly the Auto Focus system proved effective, configurable, smart and practical. It’s main technical...

    Patrick,

    Definitely wait for a reply from Red Support but there is a possibility that some electrical contact spray may lubricate the pins enough for the spring to push the contacts out? I would...

    Generally DSMC2 should be good and I have had zero problems but I have had a few colleagues who have had problems. The DSMC2 is complex beast at a good price and anecdotally I suspect Sony and Arri...

    Aaron,

    Great work with such a tiny crew. Plenty of good coffee in Bondi to keep production moving forward.

    Not sure in my work I would ever need 2TB Media but at the $1,800 USD cost for the USB C model the Red 960GB Mini mag at $2,350 is looking like poor value and the 480Gb at $1,450 USD is only $350...

    Jarred did you use the in camera gyro information to stabilise the shot of the girl in the "Power of Red" video? Sony with their FX9 is doing a similar process and taking the Gyro information in...

    Unless you can get a bargain price on second hand 4x4 filters do not go there. If you buy good quality filters and you look after them you can expect decades of service. 4x5.6 will cover your wides...

    Edy,

    The TIFF images don't tell us much but iff you post a R3D frame grab then the metadata will be helpful in understanding what is going on. If I had to guess image 1.3 is 800asa and 1.5 is...

    Dave,

    You will love your Revolva. Here is a link to a video test I did although it mainly pertains to Monstro and the vignette issues the larger sensor brings that should be no issue for your...

    "The Boys"

    Presently watching "the Boys" on Amazon Prime and congratulations to all the cinematographers involved. It looks fantastic and a wonderful use of the 2.35 aspect ratio. Again the Monstro camera shows...

    Manufacturers videos alway seem so poorly made. I know it is an aesthetic call which varies for different people and markets but this short film just screams video rather than cinema. The motion blur...

    I would pay for a shutter system and I have seen them on EVFs before usually operated by the pressure of your face. I didn't like them as the tiny delay for the shutter to open was not good for doco...

    Steve,

    I think Jan is on the money with the sun damage. It’s very easy to do and can happen in less than a minute. My camera was transported on the front seat of the AC’s car and the sun through...

    Thankyou again for the always lucid, accurate and concise answer that comes from someone who does their homework
  20. So many questions

    Its an interesting point that the few Dragon 8K sensors did go to Panavision. I wonder if there are still DXLs that are Dragon equipped or Panavision retro fitted these with Monstro sensors? Did ...

    Daniel,

    Is it possible to output and upload a 4K version of your tests? When it comes to judging lenses 1920x1080 is not really sufficient and with most serious (money) projects requiring a 4K...

    Rodrigo,

    Are you referring to the white line top and bottom of the image? Is this line baked into the R3D or just the monitoring path? I assume Frame, Action and Title guides are switched off in...
