How will Auto Focus be in Still's mode Jim, Will it be up to standards of a DLSR? Also not as important but just for curiositys sake is there AF in video mode?
It can only will a DSMC if AF is good as dlsr's otherwise a CinePhotographer may need a second dslr body for quick AF in still's while on shoot..
If ALL this bases are covered than Truly will have a all in one DSMC...
If you add up any kit on the market, it's always more than the core rig when you put it all together - I've invested far more into my ultra-portable Canon HV20 that I use at home than I originally bought it for - lenses, batteries, hoods, and so on. It's the same thing with a car...you're not really buying a car, you're buying a car, plus insurance, plus property tax, plus repairs, plus maintenance, etc. etc. Everything is like a Transformer: more than meets the eye, haha.
30 days to acquire a credit of a bank...that very very short Jarred. We have small bussiness...I Love my R1 but I don't finish to pay it, If I want to upgrade to EPIC X, I need to take credit in france they take 5 or 6 week...30 days that's toooooo shoooorrrrrt !!!!
If you knew nothing about this and tomorrow the Epic was being sold, it would be an excellent value all on its own.
I could not afford the Red when it came out and can not now. I read right here that this opportunity would soon be coming to an end and that if you wanted to act, you should do so now. It did not matter, I still did not have the work to justify the investment. No anguish, just business 101.
I happily rent Red when needed and shoot my own 5d and 7d kit to move the ball down the court. The great thing is that I am making money now and investing in lenses and support gear that will be 100% applicable when I can afford some future version of Red.
Right now the reward is having paying clients, not just clients
I know this concept has been brought up over the past 2+ years - but I don't think it's ever been addressed (and forum search is disabled tonight)...
It would be a great idea to support supplemental data to be encoded inside the RedCode data stream perhaps via a USB or serial or some other port on the I/O module.
Let's say I have a moco rig and I want to store meta data in the footage as to the pan/tilt/etc .. I could write to the serial port and the meta data would be captured in the RedCode frames.
I think this concept already applies to motorized lenses - smart glass, whatever you want to call them. But I think that's made possible because the lens module is inherently married to the rest of the modules.
So I guess I'm really proposing an external meta data module ... or a serial port on the existing I/O module.
Anyway - just an idea!
To think.. assuming all goes well, we will have Epics out in less than two months..is just insane. I'm so dying to know how many Tattoos are going to be in the beta pool. I'm feeling REAL good I made the early leap a couple years ago. Thanks Jim, Jared and the rest of the Red team.
