great minds think alike Jay :-)
Could you highlight for us what the 'changes/additions' are? Are they something different from what we knew when the 2 second startup time was announced?
And '(at least)', does this mean we're to expect more missed spec?
Please don't take this the wrong way, just curious.
The new cameras draw much less power than the R1, thus using three 190wh V-lock batteries should pretty much cover you for a long day with only two 15 second breaks.
For someone who plans on shooting a wedding for example (and yes, there will be these people) 15 seconds is a LOT of time to wait for your camera.
If this camera is marketed to do a whole wack of different things, we have to remember that it won't be used for just film makers.
We miss a lot of action and hold up clients on a daily basis waiting for our R1 to boot up. Is it a massive deal, no not for us, but the faster the better.
It's not a deal breaker. Not at all.
Thanks for the news.
Reading between the lines, does a 15 second bootup mean that the cameras are loading in at least some firmware? Does that mean that all of the features aren't necessarily 'baked in' to the ASIC and we will still be enjoying frequent updates that add features and fix things?
I'd like to see you more often posting your concerns over here and other sites such as cinematography.com or CML forums, though. Where the film-style (different than cine-style in DSLR times nowadays :-) envelope has been pushed against the RED mission statement... and economies of scale, as matter of fact.
