I hear horror stories, usually unsubstantiated, about REDs "randomly failing in the field" "Stops working" etc. What frustrates me is usually there is no way to find out what the operator did or didnt do wrong.
I keep my camera well maintained, test it before every shoot, etc, and I've never had this problem. I do my homework, explore the bugs, work with release builds only, but I'm still terrified that one day on an importent job with no backup camera within 50 miles, something will happen inside my baby and it won't boot (or something).
Am I just lucky, or do most of those "horror stories" come from user error?
