  1. #1 spot on the footage 
    I have a round spot that can be seen on the far right of the footage. We cleaned the lenses and did a test with two different lenses. We don't see the spot from 2.8 -11 but after that the spot is noticeable. all the way to 22. We even did testing on different setting on the ISO

    I was wondering could it be the sensor may have artifact on it or is it something farther into the camera? Thanks

    Working blind, but if you have an R3D Snapshot or high res jpg it's easier to see what's going on.

    its a round spot which can be seen a bit down below the word Spot. youtube footage seems to show the footage a bit dark.

    If that appears on every lens I would examine your OLPF.

    Looks like something got on there.

    I found a camera shop in Orlando that will clean the full camera inside and out for $220. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the camera never had a cleaning before.

    It´s the sensor / oplf that needs cleaning take like 10 minutes and any rental house has a guy that can do it or you can do it yourself. 220USD seams a bit steep. A bottle of wine is usually more than enough.
