Now remember I work with RED, so I'm biassed....
I know you are biased but also knowledgable
The question $1000 on this or $1000 on a video camera will not include red or scarlett so there is no bias
In fact you should be steering me towards the nikon and keeping my initial investment $ down and glass $ in nikkors - which of course fit RED
A red is not out of the question for me - as a video newb that may sound stupid but I have used enough video to know
- that I need a decent wide which with a decent camera cost a lot almost as much as a simple red rig
- small chip cameras look crumby and are hard to focus
both pushes me towards just getting the Red and sticking with the nikkor lenses rather than getting a $10k vid rig
There are other factors; resale value, possible rental income, and obselecense of low res stock footage
My most likely route is to go D90, learn, be annoyed, then go Red and nikkors
Are people working with Red and nikkors or is the focus travel all wrong ?
If you had a $6000 NikkoRed camera with a decent chip size I would just get that
D4X-Af-60fps is what you need to worry about ! ?
So $1000 on D90 or a handycam
