Geoff Boyle FBKS, cinematographer and leader of
CML - Cinematography Information & Discussion
did extensive digital camera testings at the
Hands on HD - the annual high definition-event in Hannover.
"The RED has just under 3 stops less latitude than the D-21 or the F35 and
about 1 stop less than the SI-2K. However, it can look gorgeous if you bear
this in mind, it definitely favours overexposure and protecting the
highlights rather than exposing for the low end."
I write now and would consider this suggestion as a sort of Warning Message to the RED Team:
"Please RED do not start ship EPIC, EPIC-X or RED ONE upgrade to Mysterium-X
before you don't FIX EXPOSURE LATITUDE of the new sensor (aka Mysteruim-X)."
This would help us not to go again throughout the same circle of discussions, confusion and testing
about Mysterium-X comparison with the other digital cameras like Arri D-21, Sony F35, SI-2k, Phantom HD Gold, etc,....
And the most important thing is to make RED1 M-X, EPIC-X, EPIC, etc,...
a real competitive camera system with the other digital acquisition systems.
Simply just make it better than any other sensor at the competition."
