It's nice, but I'd rather drop the extra $500 and get the recording features as well!
This is a Pandora's box type of question. It's like asking what the best color or flavor of ice cream is (green and cookie dough, by the way).
I hated hearing this when just starting out-- but you really do need to work for a nominal amount of time on each system and find out yourself. Personally, I'm a huge RED fanboy. great menus, great image.
I think this is great for the tent when printing forms. Monitoring, not so much. But this would be great for the many office jobs on the outskirts of the set!
Honestly, one of the numerous things I did not enjoy in Jurassic World's was the sound (and music). It felt very weak to me. From dinosaurs to explosions and everything in between. Especially the larger dinosaurs roaring. I'd have to see it again and really make some notes (perhaps when it's out on DVD). Just my two cents.
I think slating is VERY important on larger shoots with multiple dates, places, re-shoots, effects shots, B-Crews, etc... Think feature film size. Imagine sifting through all of your footage to find one shot or take, and nothing is labeled as fully as it could be.
I'm kinda' nauseous thinking about it.
Thanks for this great share! Haven't dug into all of these links yet, but this compilation style of article would be great to have once in a while. You know, for us slackers! :D
