Totally agree Tim. I respect Red company for what they try to bring to the table. The thing is, Sony just do their thing (recently A7s ii and FS5 to name a few) when Red announces things we have to wait for through a teaser so obscure we could certainly do without. I mean, WHAT IS THIS TEASER ALL ABOUT? Instead, what about a footage or 2 shot with the RAVEN? What about a teaser showing what you guys mean by "4K4all"? Why not shipping it in the coming weeks? Now that the URSA mini is out, now that the FS5 is coming? It's like saying : "Ursa mini and Sony clients, we want you to reconsider or cancel your next order" when they should have amazed those of us who shoot "on a budget (say $10K to $12K") by selling it...now? Sometimes, surprise has potential but that teaser has me thinking the Raven was kind of improvised...By March, Sony or Blackmagic will still be selling killer product out of the blue without this "red-kind-of-annoucement" powder.
Have you seen this video?https://vimeo.com/97045916
It was shot with the Amira. Looks great don't you think?
Totally agree ! Thank you Fernando :)
Thanks Ian,did you have any issues with your RED Scarlet at that time?
Thank you Fernando !
I did read some of the comments but still have a question.
Assuming the Raven :
- gets 4K ProRes 444
- costs about 10-12K (including for exemple the LCD monitor, ssd module, side handle, 4 redvolts, mini mags and reader etc)
- gets some interesting specs (dynamic range, frame rates up to 120 4K apparently,...)
Would some of you go the extra cash and buy the Raven over the URSA Mini (+ viewfinder, shoulder kit, v-mount batteries...)? If so, why? This question obviously goes with the reliability of both companies.
What do you guys think?
