No problem for any delay.
Keep safe in that fire disaster.
I rather see two frames taken at different shutter angle equal to two or 4 stops and combined.
This is great and the type of thing that I'm willing to hold out for. I continue to be disappointed with other camera systems when it comes to dynamic range and noise. If you can improve on your original design without a huge increase in size of the camera, then I'm happy.1. We are implementing a new daughter board to the sensor. The result is increased dynamic range and reduced noise (incredible as that may seem) over serial numbers 1-100 with no downside. This improvement affects all frame rates at or below 25fps. This is a major breakthrough for RED and I am sure will be of great benefit to all camera owners.
Also very cool. I was getting concerned about some of the reports about the mount.2. We have developed a new stainless steel PL mount system that is user adjustable, stable and does not use shims. It is as close to a religious experience as a lens mount gets.
Get rid of most of the bugs by Dec 10 and I'm happy.3. We are taking time to enable more features and stabilize the firmware. We have a few more bugs than we like with each new build. The firmware should be finished about the same time we execute the new daughter board and PL mount.
No disgruntled Red owners, that's a good thing.We will retrofit all shipped cameras (1-100) with these changes at our expense then begin production again.
A few more days is no big deal.We have a production line fully operational that is stocked with parts ready to go as soon as we can implement these improvements. The cameras affected most are 101-200.
We made the decision today to hold production so we have the fewest amount of cameras to retrofit. I do not have a new confirmed schedule, but will post one as soon as we know exactly where we stand. It is most likely that 101-200 will begin shipping November 30th and 201-600 will begin shipping December 10th.
How bad was the ash damage? Did it affect production cameras? Hope you guys get by with the least amount of damage out there. Those fires look quite intense. Our thoughts are with those who are being put in harm's way.We believe we can make all these changes with this minor schedule impact even though the fire generated ash has contaminated our clean rooms and will take a week to fix. The fires still rage here and ash is everywhere.
Well, by sweetening the pot with even better features, it makes the wait a bit easier. We just had a baby girl, so we've got our hands full for a while. A small delay on the camera is a minor inconvenience at the moment. Just means I don't get to shoot 4K home movies right away.We appreciate your patience. These changes and additions will greatly increase the capability and convenience of the RED ONE for all users. This is a perfect example of the RED ONE becoming a "next generation" camera for all our users without any additional cost.[/B]
Why would anyone looking to buy a digital cinema acquisition system want anything else? It's just stupid how good this package is becoming.
first of all, amazing that you will already be retrofitting the old cameras (maybe you shouldnt have rushed them out the door :P) but thats good on you
second, i wish you the best of luck with those fires
