  2. Of course I understand these things Mike - but...

    Of course I understand these things Mike - but first of all, there is a big difference between a Hollywood VFX driven blockbuster with 100s of shots, etc. and an "indie" at Sundance - which is what...

    We Are What We Are is now on Netflix - if you gave not seen it yet.

    Amen.

    I had a significant VFX house do fluid sims for 4K 3D on a low budget - the software & hardware today is way faster than just 2 years ago - and all the hard stuff - (simulations, revisions,...

    Hard to go back to MX after you rock that Dragon for a little while :)

    Yes, I have become a big fan of rating at lower ISOs Dragon.
  6. Interested. How soon will they ship?

    Interested.

    How soon will they ship?

    The camera assumes that you have zero light hitting the sensor when creating the CalMap.

    So ... yeah ... if you don't black shade correctly - you will have issues. That said - it's pretty hard to...

    Part of the issue IMO is that firmware keeps improving and changing to make things better and easier. So the "best practices" need to evolve as well.

    But YES - I think there needs to be a better...

    No you don't have to import or export anything....

    No you don't have to import or export anything. That is a feature so that if you want to save and/or re-load a CalMap you created for a specific temp or exposure setting you can do that.
  13. Pat - days/week passing & humidity are not going...

    Pat - days/week passing & humidity are not going to make a CalMap "go out of spec." It doesn't ever go out of spec - it's spec is based on sensor temp and exposure time for that specific sensor (and...

    First of all .... you are looking at a SCALED image from the sensor on a low resolution display. So, sure ... SOMETIMES it will show you - sometimes you won't see it. Further, on some firmware builds...

    Funny you should say that. I have often wondered if the REDRAY play should actually be a "load your branded USB3 thumb drive in the kiosk" instead of progressive streaming / download.

    You can have that opinion, but yeah - it would be an opinion based on zero fact or testing - which seems to be pretty standard in the this industry actually. ESPECIALLY when folks throw stones at...

    EWA's EPIC splashbag is about 3 weeks from coming out of the oven - I have spoken to them and they have agreed for me to battle test a pre-ship unit - the sole importer for EWA is based in NY. Stay...
  18. This is a FACT.

    This is a FACT.

    Ivan (and fellow Redusers) I'm not sure who started this whole "crank up your ISO to check your black calibration" thing - but let me just say ... it's a HIGHLY flawed way to check your calibration...

    Oh ... you just wait until someone start the new "better than Dolby Vision" Technicolor's new HDR standard wannabe thread :)

    Well ... testing is hardy giving up a marriage. You know ... the film lovers ... (I was one) TESTED film stocks. They just didn't assume when Kodak or Fuji released a new stock it was better or...

    Yes - agreed. DRAGONcolor has better R and B representation IMO over any previous RED color science. B was always my issue with RG3 - as IMO - it was under-saturated and R was over-saturated IMO -...

    I really appreciate Wally's work. He's got some serious talent. The ONLY question I have is ... has he, or would he even consider testing the Dragon?

    Yup. Right now distribs/platforms are being "bullish" for 4K finished content.

    The BEST thing an indie can right now with respect to adding sale value to their completed film is finish in 4K.
