Why hasn't anyone thought of these products before? Can't wait to get my hands on these. The orbit is going to make operating a gimbal so much easier. I don't know how RR fit the receiver into the motor but that's also going to save money and rigging time. Well done RedRock!
Nothing wrong with the camera work. But I agree with several others here that the image quality itself is not impressive. It may be the low lighting, the sets and locations, frame rates, etc. But the image on my laptop looks flat and muddled. If you turn down the sound the video loses all it's punch. Again, nothing wrong with the framing and composition...just the camera to me doesn't sing at all in this video.
Wanted to like this so badly! Then saw the test video..sigh.
It's pretty obvious the DP and Colorist did not have a lot of time to do tests with Canon Log 2 footage. The color timing is all over the place...which I believe is what people are reacting to the most...it does look like a student film due to inconsistency - and the exterior shots look boring...there are a few pretty shots but most are..meh. But this was the case with Laforet's Mobius...I'm betting the next demo video looks much better. Jonathan Yi's second demo for the Mark I which came out after Laforet's demo was a sigh of relief. Crossing my fingers that someone at Canon gives it to Yi, or someone like Yi, who is more in alignment with their target audience (independent producers and shooters). Having said that - the price is just too high given today's options. I own a rental shop so I'll buy a couple - but right now I don't see myself standing by it for clients the way I do for the Mark I version.
ARRI just released ALL their specs for their Alexa Mini. RED should do the same or stop talking about making customers upgrade for an unspecified camera. Otherwise, their customers will go with the mini in a heartbeat knowing that any client will accept an Alexa sensor for 90 percent of jobs.
I agree...I don't feel RED even likes filmmakers.
