Earlier today I was comparing the prices between these cine-zooms and the stills versions. The cine versions are $3,000 more!! They are the exact same lenses optically but with a different housing, and they are actually up charging $3K for that. Incredible...
LOL me too... Uhh, It actually kinda does matter if it's parfocal or not.
I don't know much about the Vaicam, but does it shoot RAW? I know it shoots RAW-to-codec but can you shoot straight RAW? Also, the memory cards are almost the same price as Redmags.
Wait... you would't buy a Red because of the "cheaper/better competition"? Please tell us what camera is better and cheaper than the $30K Epic-W or $10K Scarlet-W.
I watched this guys comparison video last month and its pretty awesome. That being said, I wonder what he did to make the RED look like the iPhone. If you've ever used a RED and seen the footage on your own CPU, its absolutely incredible and no phone can even come close to the DR and detail. The comparison video makes the two cameras look very close, but in the real world thats just not the case.
Over twice the price of a Ronin, way to go Freely. Gimbals these days just aren't that different from one another. The cat's out of the bag and now everyone is manufacturing them. As nice as this will be, I just can't imagine paying $4k more for it than a Ronin
