    Well, they still sell them and there is a market for them, myself being a Raven owner. I really think the best thing to do is move them up to the older 6K Dragon sensor and have that as part of the lower end DSMC 2.0 camera system.

    I think this is exactly what's happening. Any day now..

    As an owner of a Raven from the very beginning, I've been quite pleased with the performance I've been able to squeeze out of this little machine. Although, if RED were to offer another opportunity for Raven owners to jump onto whatever's next, I'd bite this time around. I'm stuck with the very fortunate problem of Raven just being a little too underpowered for my business these days, but swallowing the full price of Gemini or DSMC2 Helium is a bit much. Cost is only an issue in the absence of value, and RED always finds a way to deliver. I'm curious what's around the corner.

    I’ve been wondering this for years. Solid answer.
    That said, would there ever be a way for the user to choose a 4K HDMI output -or- internal proxies? That would be an awesome compromise.

    While HD video monitoring on set is really all that’s necessary right now, it would be pretty badass to connect a cheap 65” 4K UHD TV via HDMI for studio shoots... even if that meant no proxies at the same time.

    Not certain how much the processing for proxies, or a UHD tap, depends on FPGAs vs ASICs. Even if it's mostly FPGAs that, like their name implies, are field programmable - I would imagine its a non-trivial coding task. Beyond that, I would guess the number of folks who placed a premium on being able to author ProRes or DNx in camera was exponentially larger than the number who would avoid RED cameras due to lack of a UHD/4K spigot.

    I am hoping that the Production Module for DSMC2 will house additional processing resources that add a UHD/4K feed to the mix without adding any burden to the internal proxy creation step. I'm also quite curious about a successor to the Broadcast Module for DSMC1 which included a SMPTE fiber output for hard lined field production scenarios...

    Cheers - #19
