It looks like it’s RED Day here at NoFilmSchool. Both Sony and RED have been making a lot of noise in relation to new products (or price reductions). We’ve got the new F5 and F55 cameras, and a new 4K recorder from Sony, and while we can’t be sure of the final price just yet, it’s clear RED and Sony both view compressed formats as important (even if one might say 1080p/2K is a “scam”). The new RED Meizler Module, which features all sorts of wireless controls and proxy recording, now officially supports ProRes. Another major milestone for RED, they’ve also released the cheapest media available, a 48GB SSD, and it’s in stock in the RED store if you’d like to order it. Click through for more details. More »

This post was going to go live far earlier but there’s been quite a bit of news regarding cameras.

Unfortunately, it comes at a price, but it will be one of those modules that will be very useful as a rental (unless you’ve got a lot of money to spend). Since there are so many, some of the more important specs are listed below. More »

RED always seems to be a topic of conversation in the independent film world, even if their prices have been steadily rising over the years. They’ve always been quick to add modules or accessories, but many professionals have found that system to be a pain, and many argue that to get the camera to do anything, you’ve got to buy a ton of accessories that only RED makes. That modular system is unique in the film world, however, because it allows RED to make a device like the Meizler module – a module that provides a tremendous amount of functionality in a small package.
