drawer77: i have a question about Red cameras for you gurus out there. i know the Red camera are modular cameras. But do they use a reflex system like a DSLR or are they mirrorless ?
There is a video viewfinder and an on-board monitor with touch screen control. Also 1 x HDSDI output that you can run to a HD monitor.
It doesn't have a mechanical shutter (although you can get an optional LCD shutter called a Motion Mount) or a mirror.
rwbaron: I wonder who makes the sensor for them?
What a legend.
Keep up the great work Mr Maki.
Erik Ohlson: A "protective" filter is a chimera - a waste of time & money, adding 2 more dirt-catching & reflective surfaces.
Ask yourself: "Why don't the camera designers put a flat glass in front of their lenses.
I haven't used or missed such things in over 60 years of photography.
Actually on some lenses, like for example Canon telephotos, they do!
Francis Carver: Wow, a "Full-HD" 1920 x 1080 pixel count sensor for videography, how revolutionary! Quick, someone tell Canon that Sony already has 6 different models of digital video cameras/camcorders, each with native 4K resolution video recording capabilities. And Canon is now experimenting with the previous generation resolution HD? Wow....
4K monitors are available now.
Consumer models are being released very soon.
4K streaming is available now with 4K Bluray available very soon. It seems like the Bluray is going to be pretty heavily compressed though.
4K is the next big consumer electronics push.I'm not sure if it will really take off, but the the manufacturers are going to give it a red hot go at making it a success.
Very, very nice image.
Thích Quảng Đức's Austin isn't that colour.
Otherwise pretty good effort
tkbslc: Very cool. I may pick one up for my 8 year old.
After my kid puts this together can he get a job a Foxconn or something?
Amazing images.Really stunning.
Sucks that the photographers are signing away their rights.Sad that artistry and technical skill is so undervalued now.
CameraLabTester: Those long lost toys do take me back...
I kinda miss "the smell of Sulphur Dioxide" in the morning... even though it was a killer for your health...
There is a cool site for old graphic design tools similar to this list.Awesome to see this stuff that is rare now, but back in the day was so common you would never think would disappear.
CollBaxter: As to these scopes and the rest used by hunters. I am not pro hunting or anti hunting. I live in Africa and here we are pragmatic about it. Poaching is the problem not organized controlled hunting. Most controlled hunting takes place on game farms where you pay for what you shoot. These farms are the corner stone of conservation in Africa as these game farmers breed animals that would have normally been allowed to die out. They put a value to the animal and therefore it is protected. They also know to balance nature they have to have non valuable assets. So if people want to visit to satisfy some blood lust or primitive urge then they are welcome to come with their expensive toys and pay for to get their rocks off. It we did not have this the farmers would have moved in cows .
As to scopes go into a gun store and see how many brands there are. Nikon is one of many. They screwed up when they mentioned safari. A true wild lion is not a Disney character that eats coco pops.
I used to be anti-hunting, but the reality in Africa is exactly as you say.
The animals would likely all be extinct without the rich hunters using the game parks.
This has been done before quite a few times.
Including early last year a whole launch campaign for a big surf label (I can't remember, but I think it was Quiksilver) was shot entirely with exactly this technique.
they set up scaffolding in a wave pool and at actual surf breaks to mount the Go Pros on.
There is great behind the scenes video of it on the web.
The operators they had computers on set for visualisations also.
Very cool stuff.
You guys don't get it.
The target market for these is probably Oil Sheiks and the like.
In different cultures, these things are likely considered beautiful and unique.Gold, brown leather, rubies, wood burl etc.
The more they cost, the better.
Look at stuff like Vertu mobile phones.
Definitely not for me, I think they are ugly and stupid.I prefer the standard Sony ones.But they aren't made for me.
