    IMO, you could live on the Shogun footage until final color even on a feature - with the exception of any key VFX pulls/comps/etc. With the Komodo so early in it's life, no offense to RED, you're...

    I would assume that RED has thought about what verticals they might get traction in if they could meet certain specs. Total size, power consumption, easy tap into established infrastructure (SDI as...

    I really hope that EXT port supports a breakout cable to enable a variety of control and I/O functions. If so, I further hope that RED has engaged with 3rd parties (pin outs, voltages, SDK) to...

    While they look a lot like LEMOs, AFAIK, ODU is a competitive product - not a LEMO variant.

    The most impressive thing I've heard so far is that it can take a 6K RAW file and process it into UHD/4K RGB over SDI on the fly internally. Handling the TDP requirements in that tiny box is frakkin'...

    I believe the power connector is made by ODU (not GDU). ODU comes from medical/military world so I expect them to be quite good. Hate to throw shade on Lemo, but I've had too many instances where it...

    Bummer. I was interested in the Red slim V-mount solution for low profile pickups. No matter how small the rig, sporting a pro v-mount battery draws attention. A slim battery that matches the body is...

    FWIW, the newer sensor tech offers an excellent S/N ratio so protecting the highlights a bit is no longer an invitation to noise-ville. While I do NOT recommend underexposure, there are times I will...

    Rolling log

    I would venture to say that the key difference is the chemical response to photons in film stock is natively log vs digital values that are inherently linear off the sensor. There are many ways, both...

    If it does turn out to be FF, I wonder what windowing options it might support. I wonder if it would have sufficient processing power (and heat dissipation) for in camera downscaling?

    Walkarounding

    I can think of a bunch of reasons to stay at S35 vs FF or VV - especially if size, data rates, heat dissipation, etc are part of the design envelope. I love larger formats, but for a lot of...

    Agreed. BTW, does anyone know how many mating cycles CFast cards are designed for? MBTF? Not trying to throw shade, just asking.

    The shorter FFD of an RF (or E) mount is key to a smaller body. I'd place my bet on an S35-ish sensor size. Curious to find out the pixel pitch and nominal resolution.
