People are going to have to get used to the fact that the images they shoot with RED One are not meant to "look good" without some serious post-processing—in fact, as we discussed here, the best RED One images are often the ones that "look" the worst to your eye.
That's going to be so hard to convince people of on set. A few years of HD and they have forgot what a video tap looks like. I can't wait to see the LUT system put into effect for the monitoring.
Everyone at Offhollywood is a fan of your work - so, your compliment means a lot - thanks!!
What I should have said was "we are now getting great images more CONSISTANTLY than our car shoot" - and we got TONS of great stuff on that shoot, but we did under-exposed some stuff - I think we were just paranoid - worried about the sun -
It takes a bit to get use to "shooting for the best dynamic range" - but once you do - post is FUN!!
The FALSE COLOR feature on the camera works fantastic for setting the exposure for best dynamic range -

I haven't gotten official permission yet from the production company - but I'll leek this one out anyway - this was the very first test shot from today - we let Mike Curtis operate the camera - set up along side a 35mm on the set of a Asian cosmetics commercial - set the exposure using false color feature of the camera -
pop it in photoshop, auto levels, crush the blacks a bit .... yeah ...
as soon as I get "official" premission Mike Curtis will post a bunch more on his site on Monday -
That still is fantastic! I don't think there is a 35mm shot in the world that can match that. I loaded it into AE and dropped it onto a SD timeline. At 25% i might add so it filled frame top to bottom. It was unreal. almost too good :] I can't wait for this damn camera.
