I agree with Tim. Since nowadays Filmmaker can do everything now, I understand to add everything your reel (I do it as well), but make explicit what you actually did.
Here is e.g. how I did it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O14KkYG3XFY
Well raw filming is not the only reason why filmmaker are using RED. I've choosen RED, because of the great sensor/color it delievers. The big resolution, the high framerate and the Raw/ Prores codecsare a big plus as well... I don't think RED will bother much about this announcement. They've already got a lot of problems woth the Scarlet-W/ Raven productions.
I wonder how long the editing tools will need to support the new Sony raw.
I actually wrote a paper about color in film and it's really interesting!
Like already mentioned there are those types of film, who use color for the mood. E.g. apocalyptic film use rather gray and washed out color, virtual reality like Matrix green...But there are some film, who use colors for certain elements. A great example would be The 6th Sense, where everything what has do to with death is red (door knob, rend tent, scarf of the wife...)
I am using the 13" of 2014. No problem working with Full HD - 6K ProRes, h264 or RED RAW footage. Like the others already said, I need to play it as well in 1/4 or 1/8 resolution if the videofile has a higher codec or resolution.
can't wait to try it out :)
