    I been RedUser for almost 2 years since I got my first camera, and I remember that each time I joined RedUser there was new and good information, but lately I come and I see the same threads that hasn't been updated in weeks or days.

    Am I the only one with this feeling? Everyone moved to h4v?

    In the early days lots needed sorting out. Now it's pretty simple:

    1. Light it
    2. Shoot it
    3. Focus carefully

    (not necessarily in that order)

    More seriously, Phil Holland's Field Ops guide covers a lot of ground. From time to time we see some great clips and/or stills from recent productions. If you are making great images, then definitely share with the community!

    First Jim left five years ago and then Jarred started posting new information to facebook and instagram instead of here. People are very active on there.

    Yes, a bit less active and mainly we get a lot of For Sale posts. Yet the cameras have never been better, that's the good part. Loving my Monstro and shooting great content with it.

    Oh woe and lamentation. The RED user demographic may be ageing out. It's been ten or so years since the original kick-off when everybody got all lively and excited. The kid-eagers may be embracing something else. Seriously though it seems the level of discussion and debate may have matured for the better and some of the tourists may have thinned out in more recent times.

    IMO, RedUser still has an important role to play in keeping the lines of communication open with the RedTeam. For example, the DSMC3 wish list thread...

    In addition, there are lots of people using RED cameras in a wide variety of genres with vastly different budgets. Creative approaches to workflow in particular, are still relevant for a lot of RedUsers even in 2018, starting with post production hardware/software choices. Then there's the real world feedback on the many things we use with our Red cameras. YMMV, but I've saved thousands of dollars by steering clear of poorly designed or unreliable gear.

    I agree that our user base seems to have matured and things are more sorted out now. Honestly, I just think everyone is out shooting and too busy to chat because they aren't having any problems with the gear. At least that's my story.
    I do miss the late night Jarred teases where we all stayed up to speculate what RED was up to next. All those conspiracy theories are fun.
