What a great moment seeing Jim and Jarred presenting the Epic on IBC. Epic will change the way films are made and I can‘t wait to get it into my hands.
When I saw it, my only thought was, how easily can the camera been mounted on a steadycam in low mode or a 3D rig, hanging from the top? Here is a thought I just had and maybe someone else out there thinks this would be helpful, too.
Of course Red is very welcome to use these ideas, because my only intend here is to make my life easier and not because of any financial thoughts.
Here is what I think:
1) There will be a lot of situations in which one wants the camera hanging from the top in minimized configuration (lowmode steadycam and of course 3D). Two threads at the end corners of the camera module would help a lot.
2) Registration pins on both the top and bottom would make an end to the voodoo, when aligning cameras on a 3D rig. Steal inlets would be the best, but a simple bore is better than nothing.
Please feel free to add any thought to this. Thanks.
