Hello Red Team,
Im realy happy to see the news about the Scarlet camera. I live in Europe and Im not blessed to visit the NAB thats why I post my questions here.
If anyone else knows an answer please feel free to answer :)
Will there be any sample footage made by the red team with the scarlet camera to show the quality / posibilities of the camera ? Im about to pre order "ïf possible" a scarlet or buy a Sony EX 1 right now but the problem is that I have no idea what the scarlet camera is capable of and how it will look if I will work with it. 2009 is ok I can wait but I would like to know what I can expect. I dont want tofind out afterwards, specifications are good and the 3d animation looks great but it's about the final result. Can we see any test footage anywhere ? The Ex 1 is nice and has a lot of sample video's on for example vimeo but if it can be more profesional I would like to see what the scarlet is capable of and I will wait with my purchase of the ex1. We can not expect the quality from a Red One thats why Im realy interessted to see what we CAN expect..
Does the camera need a lens that will cost more than the camera itself to reach the impressive look ? The camera isnt expensive but a lens for the red one cost about 8500. What is the vision for the scarlet camera ? What would be a good configuration ? I hoped for a complete package but it looks like I have to buy an expensive lens anyway or work with an alternative from nikon / zeis and that is not why I would buy a product from Red.
How does the Scarlet Camera compare to a Sony EX 1 ? Is it a EX 1 killer ? It does not matter if it's meant to be or that is 3K but I realy would like to know if it is better and if it will look better. :)
I realy like the design of the camera and the specs look good (where is the audio ?) but everything togheter next to a Ex 1 or a hvx200.. What can you say what will convince me that this camera shoots a more professional film look than another HD camera ? They say a picture says more then 1000 words, I realy hope to see test footage from the scarlet. Don't understand me wrong.. Im totaly exited about it.. But at the same time I feel very unsure about it. I simply have no idea what I will buy I only see a cool picture of the camera.
Is it realy neccesary to use a 35 mm adapter to get more dof or reduce any noise ? For example a Red one doesnt need one to reach the impressive results and I dont think their goal is to design a camera what needs extensions from other brands ? I tought red wants to be the best and deliver a complete product ? I saw a few posts on this forum about an adapter but is this the vision of red as well ? Will the camera not directly shoot the quality an independent film maker would like to have ?
Im realy exited to see the new camera's and I hope to learn more about it soon.
Thanks a lot..
