    Thanks for spelling all that out for those who may not have been engaged in that other thread! Provides some context for my thanks to Jarred and RED. Sometimes I assume everyone's reading everything...

    You are wrong. The owner/operator world is just one part of RED's strategy. Atleast I believe so. RED also needs to be making inroads with indie filmmakers who will be future supporters of the brand...

    I ended up returning the Portkeys... didn't feel like glueing the eyecup in for the times I'd want to flip it for a DP who uses the other eye.

    Going to sit on this for a while and see if anything...

    It's important to reiterate that everything RED is doing to simplify the lineup and bring consistency and clarity to it, are VERY important to do. Even if it means pain to the existing customers, of...

    Heya Jarred, did you mean the DSMC1 users when you said "most of you"? Just fyi, that there is no path for Epic Dragon folks to go to Dragon X. Which is nothing less than tragic. ;)

    Maybe that'll...

    I wish I had that kind of time!! Even if I did, I'd put it into my writing. Just looking for an authority opinion that a respected DP would be able to buy into, or if I can't, it's just more...

    I did buy them off your reco from a while back!

    That said, a DP I worked with was really hesitant to put on the IRNDs and spoke of their issues on Helium. I didn't know much about it at the time,...

    I'm reading that there's a green cast with IRND filters on Helium. True? I have a set of Firecrest IRND filters I was using with both Epic Dragon and Epic-W Helium. Wondering if I need to get a set...

    How though? I've gone through the entire menu on the controller, and the "buttons" submenu has no such option. Maybe I'm just missing something obvious.

    edit: NVM... found it. It was under inputs...
  13. RTMotion Hand Controller - disable knob control of Shutter/ISO

    On a recent shoot, the RTMotion Hand controller kept changing the ISO of the camera. Likely the AC accidentally touched the knobs, but even when they tried not to, it kept happening. We looked to see...

    RED shouldn't need legislation to do this. Just needs to consider its customer base. Just within the last year, the indie crowd I hang around with has turned extremely sour on RED. This was never the...

    Thanks Chris. I'm landing on the 6K workflow as the minimal standard. Both on my Dragon and the EPIC-W. For shots with tons of detail, or if I need the widest FOV, I'll bump it up to 8K on the EPIC-W.

    I got the Portkeys EVF

    I do like it, but the darn eyecup keeps falling off! Almost lost it twice. Do people do something to glue it on or something? I don't even see any replacement eyecups...

    Yep. Can't speak for others, but I'm not looking for upgrades to dsmc1, but the drop for repairs and parts is hard to swallow. Although as a business owner and entrepreneur myself, I understand it...

    Thanks guys checking both of those out. Anyone using Wooden Camera aks to attach these to the RED? Which ones work best with EPIC-W? I have the wooden camera top plate currently, so am leaning...

    Thanks Phil. That's concise and helpful.

    Alex, thanks for that tool. That massive reduction in sensor area when you crop to 5/4K on Helium is what was of concern to me. Given the indie nature of...

    Part of the reason for this question is whether I "upgrade" my EPIC-W to Gemini. I hate being at 5K (wish it had been 6K) atleast, but I do like that the Gemini will work well for Anamorphic.

    But...

    Noise and sensor crop on Helium

    Folks, what's the relationship between sensor crop and noise on the Helium? Will the amount of noise be the same regardless of whether I shoot the Helium at 8K vs 5K? I get the field of view changes,...

    Still developing my eye to spot those image properties... y'all are way more experienced, no doubt. In the flow of narrative, and in the sense that users eventually get used to such visual quirks and...
