    Owning the 18-85, just purchased the 18-50 and 50-150 recently. Mechanically the 18-50 is the most challenged, the zoom and focus were sticky, but even the iris at times would jump with the zoom. It...

    It has been already 4 Years since my last recommendation, but I now own 2 of them, restored at Duclos. Historically they were the second iteration of Angenieux's first motion picture zoom lens, the...

    Just got the lens, as it sells now for under 10K. Will compare it with the 19-90 next week. As far as I can tell now it is free of geometric distortions at around 24mm, it will barrel below and...

    Comparing the footage between the Epic-MX and R1 MX, there is a true advantage of the RI in spite of the compression numbers. Owning both, I find the R1 having cleaner blacks as well as lower...

    I have to agree that its not about dishing one product compared to another. First, they are all simple tools, like hammers with a different weight, and the R1 (love it and keeping mine) ushered us...

    Honestly in my opinion, not followed the complete thread, but to buy a set of primes at 2.8 compared to a Fujinon Zoom 20-120 or the new 21-100 Zeiss seems wrong. Both are respectable names for a...

    This is the main reason I changed to BM: after 8 Years RED couldn't produce the most important viewing support, a well sized viewfinder and focus assist enlargement during the take. Just about...

    Owning both cameras, the Ursa Mini 4.6K is by no means faster. It has a better out of the box DR and seems to look deeper into the lower greys, but it is a 400ASA camera and there is nothing good to...

    I am not writing off the chip per se, just alluding to its usefulness if Your work resolves around pro zooms and You try to use the full 6K. Even the 5K in the MX are a stretch for a number of...

    The context was Pro Zooms: Not a single Angenieux, Fujinon, Canon or Red Zoom cover the Dragon 6K. Those are the tools used; agree the Scarlet-W is a good deal, but better than an Epic MX?(Maybe)

    Still using Red One MX and Epic MX. R1 has actually cleaner blacks and great for dolly mounted work and no viewfinder lag. Will not give up either for Epic W, its a great combo. But to put it...

    Yes, this is where obsolescence hits home, like buying securities or french bread or digital cinema. The fact that Red can't fix their products (their lenses, remotes, early EVFs etc) makes buying...

    There are many good reasons for the R1 compared to the Scarlet/Epic, but it depends on the preferred shooting style. I consider it as a studio camera, dolly, jib, tripod mounted, with the advantage...

    Well Mike, I am somewhat responding to Your comment of my Redonomics thread. This weapon of self destruction arrives in Magnesium. Of course the real melt down to play the game now comes in plastic.

    The 65mm Idea for Weapon is just a day dream. To get the media out, You need to scrap all the upcoming modules etc. Even ARRI had to align with Codex, probably under duress, to achieve that goal. ...
