Something to keep in mind is that the DSLRs shoot regular video, which is the equivalent of shooting JPG. The RED and forthcoming Scarlet shoot the equivalent of raw. Operationally, the RED is also a real video camera, not a DSLR with video capability.
RED and Scarlet are simply in a different league.
Yes, but what I would like to know is that if RED is planning to step towards stills and being part of the cake. If I understand well the situation, we have CaNikon and others converging towards video, but RED converging towards still images?? Or am I understanding wrong the panorama.
I saw a sample here of still from RED scarlet but it did not look it could compeat yet with the big boys in that terrain.
Also, and I know Michael explained several times the issues about the short DOF with MF, but if MF goes video when CMOS sensor will be available, will not it create a different style or language precisely with the very short DOF? I'm thinking about certain kind of "shooters" that just look for these characteristics.
Files will be huge, but who knows in the next future if available computer power and new compression etc...A crazy wish
But I can see some interesting applications for the photographer.
Well, I read all I could read in this website about Red cameras, and generaly what's got to do with where we are going with HD video. I still swim in a sea of confusion. For example, broadcast systems 720 or 1080. We saw a clear difference in the test. Why some TV would have choosen 720 then?
If 720 is enough, then we should be able to shoot a campaign with an EP1, a GH1 or a K7 etc... But what's been produced so far is Canon (again...this nonopoly is nearly insulting : )
Red is not going very fast, but Canon is. Do you still think that Red is or will be a game changer? I was convinced some time ago, now seeing Canon, I'm not sure. Yes, these dslr have big issues with usability for video and there are some unexplained choices, like the stupid fixed LCD. But these are easy to correct.
If Canon or Nikon, and I hope Sony go to raw video, what about Red then?
Many questions, many confusion, many things...
Je ne comprends rien

An extended article (or a serie of) on Lu-La will be really welcome.
