As a sound guy, i would ask some questions to the Red people.
- The 4 mic inputs are mic/level switchable?
- There would be 48V Phatom?
- The camera will have some kind of cooler or another component tha can produce an louder than aceptable sound (higher than an modern - not effect -35mm camera)?
- The Red Hard Disk recording solution will be fan cooled?
- And the Red Flash?
Just a sugestion... There will be an mic company who will be endorsed by Red? Suggested microphones?
You know about Core Sound's Tetra Mic? It seens to be an intersting companion to an doc/run & go type of production... I think it only needed to be a little shorter, or have an angled output to fit Red perfectly...
I didn't test it (nor see an review about it), but sit hould be an nice mic.
Thanks for watching
PS: Theres no slight chance that Red will get any digital audio input? AES/EBU yould be great... SPDIF not so, but... Red will be an evoution in picture, why not be an revolution in sound too?
