I haven't shot a single frame yet*, but have already bumped into some small glitches. I wonder if this reflects a typical experience...?
a) REDMOTE wireless connection feels pretty unreliable. It dropped connection when I was standing less 3 feet from the camera, and refused to reconnect. I was scrolling through available color temperatures using REDMOTE's scroll wheel at the time. Rebooting Epic allowed the camera and remote to reconnect. Only a few moments later I was 6 feet away and connection dropped again. This time switching REDMOTE off and on again allowed a reconnect.
b) Severe banding on the 7" RED PRO LCD.
c) Slightly glitchy menus. The tiny red bar underlining a parameter gets stuck sometimes but pressing remote's MENU key once or twice has so far "unstuck" it. Commands are doubled every once in a while and other tiny things, but nothing really major, it has to be said.
d) Switching LCD view between 1:1 and normal view can result in the image being split in half (approx. 70/30 split) and the right side of the image being placed on the left side of the image. This happens way too often. The issue disappeared once by switching between 1:1 and normal view, but usually the only fix is to reboot Epic.
Granted, the above are nothing much compared to the feeling of handling the EPIC. It's quite simply porn for tech heads. The boot-up time is phenomenal and just browsing through the menus gives one the impression of massive image processing power waiting beneath the surface, waiting to be unleashed.
*: I haven't got any SSDs yet. First my bank took 4 days to transfer the funds to RED US, then they took a couple of days to ship the goods and then, as a Coup de Grâce, Easter barged in and halted everything. It'll be 5-6 days before the SSDs arrive and I don't know if I can make it... :)
