So the RED store now carries refurbished cards at a substantial discount pushing me over the edge since I'm working on a new project and just couldn't bear the thought of rendering another job without it. Ordered it and it came VERY quickly, and here's the results from one of the first renders:
Shot at 4KHD, rendered down to ProRes 422 HQ 1920x1080. Runtime: 20:02, rendering time: 25:26. Amazing. It's like walking to work then suddenly being given a Ferrari. Hootchimama. Not to mention being able to work in Redcine-x at full rez.
Thanks RED Team, you're making some outstanding products!
