Now that Mr. Rude has met Mr. Unseemly, can we agree to play nice?
Hahaha. Toia's spelling is terrible but he produces some of the best images of anyone on this forum. The spelling / grammar only bothers me because I do some desktop publishing work and always have to watch out for errors. And I may also have a bit of OCD too. :/
I was at a "4k Tech Summit" in Denver (wow that $25k Sony projector looks good... can't wait to see Redray) and was intrigued by how similar the F65 software was to Redcine-X. Seems like Red was SO spot on with their software, it had to be duplicated.
Even the name structure of the files is similar... A001_C001_XXXX, or maybe that was just setup that way at the demo.
But I have to say... $6,000 for a data transfer station? I'll stick with my $250 Red station :)
Come on Jake, Red Rocket bashing is fun and all but are "running costs" really the issue? If so, I think a CPA and a calculator could easily prove the RED Epic system is lower cost up front and lower cost per minute of footage created, copied, archived, etc. Moreover, at least in July 2012, the data management pipeline for the F65 is both heavier and more unwieldy.
I am not looking to throw the F65 under the bus, it's a heck of a camera and as mentioned its fine for short stints on the shoulder. That said, the ability to go small with the Epic does allow more flexibility in operating styles which can enable more creative perspectives.
