Honestly, most rental houses have for the most part already found that return on investment and end user enthusiasm for RED is poor compared to Arri. I understand the strategy, but I guarantee that it will not encourage many to step up to the plate. At least not on this side of the pond (Europe). Frankly, this just looks excessive and even has the faint odor of unrealistic self-aggrandizement about it. Once again. Sigh. When will they get it right ?
    I understand where they're coming from due to the limited scope of the camera and amount of work that goes into each one. OTOH, yeah, I'm right there with you... When I was still doing rentals, I would have really wanted this camera, but the conditions of it wouldn't have made it possible. Even though I was the biggest RED rental outfit in Denver and the surrounding area for a few years running.

    There is some limited opportunity with this model to get one if you can get one of the qualifying rental houses who are placing their orders to add one on there for you... What a pain. Anyway, we're re-hashing the discussion that's already taken place over in the Recon section. FWIW, the camera doesn't offer or do anything new vs. the current DSMC2 system. It's just a less modular and therefore more compact (compared to DSMC2 with the same options/modules installed).

    Consiering that you can buy 'color space transform' from Blackmagic Design for $299 and it includes DaVinci with Fusion, Fairlight and more.. I'm curious about the pricing of this.

    Perhaps somewhere in the $0.02 range? ;)

    Don't mean to be that harsh, but considering what you get for $300, it can't be easy to try to sell limited scope functionality for any money that makes a difference.

    Yeah but their market is people who would pay to stay within the NLE their already in. I shoot multiple camera platforms all the time, and I'd love to have a plug in that keeps me in Adobe.

    Let's not forget that Lisa Su will announce a ~$500 CPU that can do the same, at Computex 2019 https://www.computextaipei.com.tw/en...94382A4DFCD609.
    Lisa Su is going to announce a CPU that supports Nvidia GPU .r3d decoding?

    You can read it that way...

    What I meant is that Lisa Su will announce a $500 cpu that can decrypte+decode any current .R3D in realtime(release in june 2019) and that she will probably also announce another CPU for around a $1000 that is twice as fast. Combined with a Radeon VII that won't run out of memory for only $700, there are not many reasons left to go for the $1200+ NVidia cards.

    1/2 res in laptops would still be a good use case for GPU decoding.
