    This is probably the silliest thread I've seen on Reduser. :wink5: but what the hell - I'll throw in my two cents.

    Everybody get out a piece of paper. Draw 2 lines one positive 20 degree angle the...
  2. I think the problem here is that Graham came out...

    I think the problem here is that Graham came out of the box claiming not only that his mount is more precisely machined but is "sharper", which of course doesn't make sense since precise focus is...

    I guess then to put a finer point on it - when/why does a director/cinematographer want to deliberately, via additional filter/monofilament, put a horizontal flare in except to impress himself or...

    I come more from the video world, so maybe just ignorant on this subject. I understand why faux-cinemascope flare might be nice for shooters that want to seem cool "see it looks like an old...

    Mike: I have one of the Nikkor 50-300 ED that I bought from original Reduser Steve Gibby (Red1 SN 8) back in the RedOne days - barely used it as I got the first Birger Canon smart mount shortly after...
  6. Seems like Christopher has a good point in that...

    Seems like Christopher has a good point in that 5K ought to be "good enough" vs. other potential firmware goodies - 5K downsampled should provide a true 4K resolution. And I would think that given a...

    First of all thanks for everybody's posts - lots of good info and I think it really covers the nuances and things to consider for both cameras.
    I'll probably do as suggested and just get both -...

    I don't have a Komodo (yet, maybe). You put a link to this thread in the other thread so I checked it out and threw in my analytic 2 cents.

    You tried it with the Sony and Resolve and it works so I...

    Sergio:

    One of the things I'm not clear on is if the DCT compression in Komodo is just about compression and the overall color science is the same as other REDs or is the Komodo color science all...

    @Han: Fair point.

    I'm actually leaning back toward Komodo - primarily based on the global shutter, and the RF mounts ability to use speedboosters as @Bill Ravens pointed out that I wasn't aware...

    Phil: Your words never ring hollow - you're one of my favorite reads on Reduser and the work you've put into the charts and tests and educational and general commentary are greatly appreciated.

    Bill: I too really dislike jello on fast moving subjects - I'm an aviation/space buff and it's super annoying to see props curved to a half circle. (BTW RIP Mike Collins Apollo 11 CM Pilot who just...

    Audio time code is just audio - albeit very rapid highly modulated tones - so it seems like if Resolve reads the Sony audio correctly that was from the same generator it is likely some problem with...

    HaHa. I'll never forget meeting your wife at the RED NAB booth (not sure if it was 06 or 07) - she handed me her card - it just said RED HEAD. (She has red hair.)

    I think Steve Gibby beat me by a...

    PS./Foreword:wink5:

    I know I can get a bit longwinded, but I've shot in pretty much any situation you can think of and been thinking intensely about this stuff for 40 years. Been on test...
  16. responses

    Excellent points Han

    My responses are from the "devil's advocate POV - why? because one is $2500 the other $6000 - and for discussion purposes. Long posts - many will say TLDR - so sorry but...
  17. Your thoughts? Do I need to change the signature...

    Your thoughts? Do I need to change the signature I've had for over a year with the "Komodo soon" or make it just "Komodo".


    (I'll use this as a placeholder as well for future comment)
  18. Why should I buy Komodo over BMD 6K Pro?

    I think anyone that has followed me at all on Reduser knows I’m not a RED troll and am a RED fan but not "Fanboy". I’ve owned and purchased every generation of RED camera the moment preorders...

    $28000000000000

    that's a lot of zeros isn't it? Kinda makes you think a little more than just saying 28 trillion.

    Regardless of whatever the CPI says, we are in for some significant inflation....

    The rise in discrimination and attacks on Asians is real and was amplified by Trump and his cult, however this particular attack seems to be more against sex workers as a demographic than...

    photo sites are the same on the Arri 65 as the Alexa they just combine three Alexa chips. But yes in other cameras larger photo sites can be had with the same resolution i.e Helium S35 8K vs Monstro...

    Something about optical stuff seems to be very befuddling. I have explained how a dome port works underwater literally thousands of times and numerous times to the same individual - even though it...
