    A question about polarizers. . .

    Hi all. . .

    I almost never wear sunglasses (I know. . . big mistake), but lately I have started to do so and I've notice how much richer and contrasted (maybe too much) things seem to appear with...

    I'm sure it's just me, but I STILL love the look of the shots we got out of our now-departed RED Ones (original and MX). What's more impressive to me is that I had ZERO idea how to do anything when...

    Hey there, Phil. . .

    . . . can the Crane 3S Pro be used with DSMC1 cameras? Their website only mentions DSMC2 cameras.

    Thanks.

    5K at 8:1 or 4K at 5:1?

    Hi all. . .

    I've been shooting my features at 5K 8:1, but now wonder if I should've been shooting 4K at 5:1. Which setting will yield the lowest noise? I can see it going either way, but I...

    If the original poster is talking about a DSMC1 Epic, then I certainly beg to disagree with those who say that the internal mic preamps are incapable of delivering high-quality audio. We have used...

    Loved that camera. . .

    I really miss my RED Ones. . .

    I don't regret selling them when I did, because they dropped like a stone not long after I sold them (especially the first two), but I'm telling you. . . that MX is...

    Autofocus on a dolly in?

    Hi all. . .

    We own a DSMC1 Scarlet Dragon, and I'm curious if anyone has had any success using the autofocus system to dolly in on an actor in the course of a single shot. I'm using the Sigma...

    To begin with, we'll be shooting 5KFF at...

  17. How do I turn off M+S audio recording?

    Hi all. . .

    I don't know what I did (something!), but my Scarlet Dragon shows M+S on the audio screen in place of the normal audio meters.
    My question now is, how do I get back seeing my normal...

    For what it is worth, in three feature films shot with the RED One, we never once used the power supply. It drew all the current it needed from the computer.

    And we never once had a problem.

    Optimal output format for 4K. . .

    This isn't exactly about cinematography, but it's related, so I thought I'd try here first.
