    Were there any new OLPFs announced at NAB? Was the H20 shown off?

    In all the camera announcement rigamarole, I'm not sure if I missed it (and prior to the Weapon hints, I was hopeful that there'd be some).

    I wonder if Red is working on a version II of the STH? Since it's easier to switch OLPFs now, it should be easy to just continue improving the OLPF at the same time as improving the color science internally.

    Cool, thanks Clark.

    Drat! I was kind of hoping for more look-associated OLFPs. (e.g. Kodak OLPF, Fuji OLPF, LowCon, etc.) Also price got jacked up on the specialty ones, huh? I guess they'd be shipping lower numbers.

    IR PASS OLPF (COLOR) sounds interesting, but does someone have a picture that illustrates the effect?

    Yep. The "specialty" OLPFs are exactly that in many ways. Particularly for our Bubble Blowing friends the H2O OLPF represents something really, really exciting.

    While LowCon is happening in the 3rd party fashion from KipperTie, I don't think it's something RED will ever officially release for a few reasons. But who knows. Anything is possible.

    As for asking for a Kodak or Fuji OLPF, that is silly. Really, really silly. Get yourself a quality 3D LUT or make a custom look in REDCINE-X PRO to emulate as best as possible the tonal curve and color transform.

    I actually had it in the shop for a few days, ordered it fist day of NAB. Got it a few days later. Was really happy about having it but had no camera to test it on... Then I got a mail from RED Europe that I had to send it back... Apparently they where short in supply and some mistake was made so while everyone was at NAB somebody sent it off to me even though I was not first in line for it, so they promptly needed it back.

    But I already had opened it an checked it out, as it looks its a bit of glass that is so clear it's even hard to see the glass when you hold the olpf in front of you, which I find rather interesting, I really would have loved to test it at night to see what happens.

    But I guess I have to wait to do so. Lol.
