[edit: mis-read your post]
Of course, it's definitely unlikely. It's just one "solution" to an interesting problem. Will the average viewer notice the lens resolution change or the DOF change more? More or less than 35mm film grain? It's a tough call.
Time to shoot a test! Someday.
Rental houses, if you are listening and you are getting 5 cameras. Get at least one with a Raw port and figure out what to hook it to. Then Rent out the solution for all of us to use on our our Slow Motion days.
It would be even better if we could then Re-encode the the RAW we shoot into Redcode so it just drops into our workflow (assuming we are editing Redcode Quicktime files in place)
I am also very interested in any news about the external RED-RAID. My decision about camera configuration (even camera purchase), is based on RED-RAID.
Here is what I proposed a while ago on dvxuser:
Make the RED-RAID dual-use with user-replaceable 3.5" SATA drives. If you could use the RED-RAID as a desktop online storage system and for recording from the RAW port, more people will be interested.
For those who rarely need overcranked 4k, you can use the RED-RAID as an online storage system. When you need overcranked 4k, you take out the drives and put in a new set. Record overcranked 4k, and copy data over to separate drive when done. Now you can put back the drives you took out (probably need to be in same slots as before), and you have your online storage system back.
If RED sold the RED-RAID bare (with no drives included), they would not be responsible for hard disk related problems. If there was a secure way to manually switch between having the hardware RAID controller on/off, you could even use RAID software to configure the RED-RAID how you like. Seems like a pretty versatile solution to me. I don't know very much about these things, like if it is even possible to have a hardware RAID controller for recording without a computer, and still be able to have user-replaceable drives (not hot-swappable--that would be expecting way too much). Is it even possible to have a manual switch (very secure so you don't switch it by accident) that could turn the hardware RAID controller on/off.
