This is really interesting - and great to hear that 120fps is available.
I'm particularly interested to hear about any tests that people do screening footage shot 5K/24fps and then 5k/48+fps to see what truth there lies in the argument not only for spatial resolution, but also for temporal resolution. Tom, I'd love to hear more of your thoughts here, as you seem particularly interested (and perhaps, your subjects particularly well suited) to higher fps usage and testing the ideas of temporal resolution.
Fortunately, I think RED has both fronts covered.
Thank you Jannard.
Have you considered measuring out what will be the lowest resolutions out of which Epic will provide 4k and 2k resolved detail, and making those two of the resolutions available in the menu so as to have a quick guide to get the highest framerate possible with little compromise for 4k and 2k projects?
I can't wait to see it. Seriously beautiful looking stuff.
If you want a good 2K image, then shoot anything higher than 2K, like 3K, 4K, or 5K. Who shoots a movie so that every shot hits some perfect line resolution measurement? There are all sorts of real world factors that are going to affect measurable resolution shot by shot, we don't make movies starring line resolution charts.
And why would you want to shoot at the bare minimum resolution above 2K to achieve 2K? What's wrong with 3K, for example? Why does it have to be 2.4K?
This is where I think people are putting way too much emphasis on numbers. What happens when you achieve this perfect measurable 2K resolution? Do you get a gold star? Do you throw out the image if it ends up at 1.9 or 2.1?
I actually asked for something along these lines a long time ago by requesting a true 2.40 aspect ratio at various resolutions. Right now we get 2.40 at 4.5K, but I would like it at 4K, 3K, and 2K. If we could also get something along the lines of a Redcode 20 compression, I was hoping that these two options together might allow higher frame rates on the RED One. I would love, for example, to be able to shoot 3K / 2.40 / RC20 / 75fps.
