Also Oynx Cinema got to unbox their new Scarlet-X.

Our RED representative called us saying that our SCARLET-X was ready for pick up. We were so excited, we brought the kids and an HMC150 with us to film the unboxing at RED in Irvine.

As the employees were walking into the lobby to go home for the day, we were greeted with smiles and congratulations. It was a great feeling.

Thanks to the folks at RED!

Jim Jannard’s thoughts on the Canon C300, Sony F65, Final Cut X, Etc.


Looks like the thread got pulled down right after this got posted. However Stu of Prolost has dug up the google cache for pages 1 and 2 for the thread.

Check them out here and here.

I like what Adobe is doing.

I wonder about FCP8. What happened? FCP-X sucks times ten. REDCODE support might help a bit.

I like the Sony F65. It is so 4K.

I don’t understand Canon. I don’t like the C300. The announcement of the 4K DSLR seems to obsolete the 1DX and the C300. What was Canon thinking?

I don’t understand 1080P acquisition at all. This is so not future proof. It is such a waste of time, resources and effort.

I hate 3 foot lamberts in 3D. This is why we are doing a projector. OK… plus we have a bigger color space and simultaneous Right/Left eye.

3D sequencial- ReelD (alternating left and right eye) is a disaster. 3D simultaneous (right eye and left eye at the same time) is the answer.

I don’t understand why some are still doing RED in a film workflow. Come to the 20th century. Please.

RED is about budget. If you can afford an EPIC… buy one. If not, buy a Scarlet. If you can’t afford a Scarlet… wait.

The world economy is headed for disaster. If you can’t afford a camera… don’t buy one. If you can’t make money on a camera… don’t buy one. Especially don’t buy one that isn’t upgradeable. Rent.

Don’t borrow money unless you have an immediate return.

Life is short.
