Our Red-One just returned from Red after extensive testing to discover what our Codec Fault problem was that we were having. They could not re-create the problem in their lab, but replaced the V Board since that is where the fault would originate in the first place.
A major problem we are having in our small studio, is that the floor is covered with cheap wall-to-wall carpet. It is creating huge amounts of static electricity. Every single time I approach and touch the camera, I get a shock. THAT cannot be good for the electronics inside. Red has stated that it will not damage the camera, but I'd rather not take any chances. I don't want to take the risk of the static causing Codec Faults, or dropped frames, or screwed up takes, or anything else for that matter.
I realize 99% of you out there do not work in a studio so stupidly covered with carpet, but that's what we have to deal with nonetheless.
We cannot remove the carpet. Therefore, would a simple sheet of plywood on the floor stop the static, or should we get one of those anti-static mats which are designed just for that purpose? Or, is there another solution?
If any of you have had a similar problem, please let me know. How did you solve it?
Thanks for your time.
