Sale of the Century? Red slashes prices across the board

Published in Business

The battle for cheaper 4K+ acquisition is heating up. Just a few days ago, Sony announced the F5 and the F55, and a constellation of accessories that comprise their new 4K ecosystem. Not to be outdone, RED, perhaps in a ploy to steal some of Sony’s thunder, made its own announcement, via CEO Jim Jannard’s post on the REDuser forum:

Published in Production

RedShark contributor Phil Rhodes pointed out something to me the other day that sounds obvious when you hear it: that camera makers never used to make film, and yet - if you can remember that far back - it is the film that determines the quality and feel of the photograph (and the lens, of course), not the camera

Why would someone specify a camera before they chose the cinematographer? David Read despairs...

RED gets new fans

Published in Production

One big and consistent criticism of the RED Scarlet and EPIC cameras has been the fan noise. Even the die-hard owner operators who love their cameras compare it to a hairdryer when it is in full effect! RedShark contributor Freya reports
