    We have said all along that we love film, but at some point it is headed to the retirement home. Our fear was that digital replacements would not be good enough. We believe that the primary areas needed for digital to "measure up" are:

    1. Resolution

    2. Dynamic range

    3. "Feel"

    Resolution has never been an issue with RED. And people seem very happy with the "hand and feel" of RED footage, primarily because we don't have to sharpen our footage due to lack of resolution.

    Tonight was a big night for us. We enabled our EPIC variable HDR mode and the results are hard to believe. We were so blown away that we called Micheal Cioni over from LightIron to witness it... otherwise we risked being called a scam (again). I think there is a new dynamic range leader in the camera world. We will post a chart shortly.

    It was a good night over here at the RED Studios Hollywood... :-)

    Very glad the lull is over. So HDR mode exceeded your expectations?

    This is AMAZING news Jim. Truly remarkable especially to accomplish this much in a tiny form factor.

    IT'S ALIIIIVEEEEE!!!



    Congratulations!!!! We have to see how it looks sure, see that nice S curve, but,
    if Jim is happy enough to post it on Recon, then I it has to be the real deal!!!

    We also would have to see if there are any other limitations, but,
    with the most powerful and complex ASIC ever devised by the human race...
    ...the only limitation would be framerate, just not as insanely overcrankable in HDR mode!

    ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT Mr.JANNARD!!! LETS SEE IT PLEASE!!!

    Awesome news!

    I'm dying to shoot with it!

    Project Arbiter was supposed to be shot HDR with two Reds and a beam-splitter. Weight and mobility didn't suit the way we shot it.

    I can't wait to see your implementation of it.
