Melchiorum: The video is fake.

The only way this would be possible is if the bird flapped 20 times per second, which birds of this size don't do. Also, the frame rate of the video is clearly way lower than 20 and is kind of uneven. Notice the slow-downs at he beginning when the bird arrives and leaves. That's when the bird would flap slower due to horizontal gliding through the air. Strange?

Nope, not strange. Just fake. So lemme tell you how this video was made: you take the footage and you cut out all the frames except the ones you need (wings down). There, done. And you get uneven video frame rate, depending on the rate of wing flaps.

The process can even be easily automated.

Proof to go with your statement?

Shifter: I guess the model plane remote control hobby is toast. Spend a ton of hours building a wood model plane and then hope it flies... and with no HD gimbal cam! Thanks for the info, Lars.

heh "Flaps"

On article RED unveils RAVEN, a lightweight and portable 4K camera (158 comments in total)
In reply to:

miejoe: The press release doesn't mention sensor size.

The specs on the RED website list the sensor as 20.48 mm x 10.8 mm, meaning the sensor is actually a bit smaller than APS-C and Super 35. This translates to a crop factor of about 1.8 compared to full frame.

It's around the same as Blackmagic's 4K camera.

So 5 grand for a 4/3 equivalent sized sensor?
