Things are moving fast in the world of digital cinema. Just a few years ago DSLRs were about the only affordable way to get a cinema quality image, but now we’ve got plenty of camera options under $20,000 that would have cost well over $100,000 just five years ago. We’ve already shared with you a rather comprehensive RED buying guide, and now we have a wonderful digital cinema buying guide from Ryan E. Walters. He covers everything you need to know about putting together a camera package, and gives personal experience about the package he is planning to put together.
Despite the recently reduced price of RED cameras, each model still requires a lot of (pricey) accessories. We’ve pointed this out from the very beginning, but now we’ve gone further and compiled some realistic shooting packages at three different levels: a “cheapest possible ONE MX” list by Aaron Rich, an “owner/operator SCARLET” package by myself, and a “full professional EPIC” package by Timur Civan.

I’m by no means an authority on RED cameras, so I’ll leave it up to experts like ProVideo Coalition’s Art Adams to render judgement on RED’s recently released Color Science 30. RED is essentially a computer crammed into a camera body, so its firmware updates often pack more features than your typical camera updates (though the 5D has been a huge beneficiary of Canon’s firmware releases). With the release of the Mysterium-X sensor as well as recently updated colorimetry, what is the updated status of the RED ONE? More »
