People are now switching from Red to Varicam to get the best of both worlds.
Red claims 16.5+ stops of DR for years. Every test I saw online shows that the Alexa is below that but beats Red cameras. The Varicam beats the Scarlet-W too and is said to be 14 stops by Panasonic.
Reading the comments on Jarred Land FB page shows that people don't really understand what this test really means.
I owned Red cameras and hated them. I think that most Red users never tried an Alexa or a Varicam in their life. Or they would understand why most talented DPs choose the Alexa instead of a 8k camera with sick looking skins, bad color separation/accuracy, and average DR and rolloff (in less than a year there will be a new Red camera and people will - as always since the Red One - claim that it so much better in term of colors, skins and DR although they think it's 100% perfect now, and it will still be below Arri's colors and DR). Yes, with a lot of work you can get decent result on a Red, but you start from gorgeous with an Alexa or a Varicam.
Last post on Red chief FB page is about their camera being 19-20 stops of DR now. Red didn't make the first 4k digital camera but they for sure invented the alternative facts thing. And their users will probably claim that the absence of Red in the Oscar list is some sort of conspiracy from those cinematographers who don't know anything about cinematography. Too bad there is not a "best backyard, slowmo kids and dogs camera test movie" category at the Oscar, Red would have won it for sure.
And the Varicam. Probably the only one competing in resolution and beating Red in DR, colors and lowlight capabilities.
Many still wonder "who needs 8K"?
Arri/Panasonic/Sony users do wonder probably. As a Red owner, I don't. It's a way to fix the ugly noise @4K/5K. Some fixing again .... like the interchangeable OLPF burden, the never ending blackshades, the long wait before the camera reach the good temperature and so on. And now the extra data and ND requirement with Helium 8K .... I mainly wonder when Red will release a simple reliable camera, and not patchy computers in a box for hardcore technicians.
