So this is quite late after the 13th announcement but my first chance to post as I have been very busy. Please note because I have been so busy I am sure I have missed some threads and posts that may have asked and answered some of my thoughts/questions.
First off higher res then 4k. I really do not see anything but problems with higher res cameras then 4K. 5K maybe but 9K?????? Most post solutions are not anywhere close to handling the 4K data, not to mention that anything above 4K really becomes a bit of a waste and not much of an advantage. I understand the desire to make a sensor large enough to cover S35 frames but anything larger????? Dynamic Range and frame rates is much more important then higher res. Although creating higher res sensors are a lot easier to achieve then higher DR or higher frame rates. I pretty much only see higher res causing bigger post issues due to massive file data.
New red accesories for the new camera line up. I got all Element Technica accessories for my red because they were the best option and they adapted the red to work with ARRI equipment. ARRI is the cine standard for a reason, simply it is really F'n good. I just hope support gear is built to allow these cameras to work with ARRI equipment right off the bat.
New lens mounts seem a little strange as well. There are many amazing PL lenses and I see no reason to re-invent the wheel.
Personally for me more information and updates/tests on red primes and information on when some post solutions will be comming forward would be far more exciting.
I am impressed with the new camera line up don't get me wrong. It is just I see much more value in increased Dynamic Range, faster frame rates, lenses and a post process that does not cause producers to run for the hills.
Feel free to enlighten me if I am way off.
