Once again, amazing work! I've shot thousands of hours of RED ONE footage, and can't wait to upgrade to the new line. Will probably get an Epic X for features, commercial, and music video work and a Scarlet Fixed Package as a documentary / back-up camera.
I was a long-time hold-out for always pushing to shoot 35mm instead of digital - everything for Sony, Pana, etc was just never good enough. Given all the early specs, we put down a deposit on RED, and haven't looked back since! I still own an Arri 35mm package, but it hasn't come out of the case in over a year. Every request has been for RED, and I've been happy to oblige!
I do have a couple questions (these probably apply more to the Epic / Scarlet S35 side of things):
1) What's the range of open-shutter exposures when using the stills side? Could I do a 10 or 30 second long exposure at night? If so, there's no end to timelapse projects I'd like to do with the still capabilities of this camera!
2) With the built-in GPS, will the camera "location stamp" everything you shoot? Say I'm traveling through the mountains and shoot a scenic for one job, and then two years later, a client sees that shot on my reel and wants to use it as a location. Can I go back to the RED meta-data and pull up those GPS coordinates?
Thanks again for all the hard work, and I'm looking forward to 2010!
