    Panavision has released a set of videos entitled "Demystifying Digital Camera Specifications". I have to say that, while the science is mostly correct, the spin is absolutely wrong. Video #6 is particularly "interesting". I guess we have made Canon a bit nervous also?

    Are they actually saying that a DSLR image is not as good as a grab from the Genesis? We, at RED, find this video pretty incredible...

    We have had many top DPs call us and shake their heads on the phone... :-)

    Just saying...

    If ASC DP's shake their heads, and Panavision is getting nervous, ----that's a good sign. You're going to be a target, I hope you're ready for the ride! :)

    Panavision is just fighting for survival of Genesis in the marker crowded with RED cameras.

    And if they are sometimes "so dirty" and "so funny" that's part of a survival fight.

    We had one (nameless) ASC member come to our booth. He grabbed me to admit he had been a true skeptic. After watching the 4k footage, he converted. It was like a religious experience. He was particularly impressed with the anamorphic footage from "The Argentine". We spent 1/2 hour going over our line, including accessories... especially the lenses. He scrutinized the 18-85mm zoom and left a true fan. It made my day...

    It sounds to me like Panavision is finally buckling under the pressure. It is pretty hard to ignore what RED has done to the industry.

    Good to see you back Jim.

    Love it!
    I'm looking forward to reading in American Cinematographer (in the near future) some first hand accounts from ASC members on using Red on productions. Hopefully, there will be a feature on the "Argentine".

    panavision's a little nervous, eh?

    let's just say for arguments sake that they're right on the money, i still don't want to pay them the difference.

    i cannot wait to get my camera.

    The problem is that with the merging of digital technology and art, it becomes easy to mislead people who are gods of art into believing really stupid technological lies. Then, if you dont technically tell lies but just throw out enough tech to confuse the artists and try to reassure their feelings, they may be successful at least for a while.
