It's very important for people to voice their complaints and grievences. It allows the manufactuers and their competitors to listen to what (some) people are asking for and hopefully build and supply a camera at a competitive price to meet that demand. It's one of the ways we (potential customers and customers) make our voices heard. The other way is by choosing our purchases.
If this did fullframe 4k without too bad aliasing I would buy it. If it did 60fps in 4k full frame I would consider buying two... I may still get one but it'd be mainly for stills. The autofocus could be great for gimbal work at 24 - 30 fps.
As an ex canon, now red and sony a7s shooter (bcam and low light) this is disappointing. As neat as the sony line is, they cannot compete with canon for a more intuitive menu system and nicer color right out of the box. Takes a bit of work to bring sony into line with red color. Canon and blackmagic not so much. How did they not give 60fps in 4k on this and the c300 mk ii!!!! Sadly it's not unexpected. That said specs arent everything. I really like canon images. But in 2016 I want (semi-need) 4k. I shoot DSLR mainly for the compact form factor at times and also with the A7s and 5D;s, for fullframe... disappointing that I can't do that in 4k with this camera... Maybe they are planning a 1DC Mk ii to fulfill those features??? Thoughts?
Fantastic inspiring post. Thanks
R u loving it Daniel?
Hats off to the makers. Incredible work in the time frame. I cant tell any difference on my phone between this and other red cameras. I can imagine projected in 4k the distance will be more noticeable. Will check out on my 4k screen later. Vfx guys are gonna love the extra resolution. For most applications I reckon Red have hit the sweet spot with scarlet-w. Be interesting to see the low light comparisons.
