Cobaltum: I can see from the photos that he used 3x Tokina Cinema Vista 35mm T1.5 prime lenses. About $5,000 each. interesting choice. Love the video and it's slow pacing motion. Guys, go to his blog, it's worth a look.

@FLruckas
Saying something is interesting says nothing. Its almost as annoying as
people who
type into
forums as if they
are writing
poetry. just kidding

Why is the lens selection “interesting”?

JamesH2016: YAWN! How boring was that? What a waste of time and effort - not to mention money. Just to demonstrate hi-res video? Nothing creative about flying above / along a street in a city - even NY.

When he gets called up by Disney to shoot high resolution vfx plates for the next avengers film and your still taking photos of your girlfriend then you’ll see who is really wasting time.

terryreid: I have flown fifty times with batteries and spare batteries with as many as ten lenses and four bodies in my carry on and back pack and they have inspected them and i have never had a problem

Your supposed to carry on lithium cells and airlines aren’t too interested in small camera battteries like you’d use is a dslr, what they are interested in is larger battery bricks like v-lock which range from about 90wh upto about 240wh which are about 10 times the size and capacity of a dslr battery. I get questioned regularly travelling with v locks.i stick to the carry limits, tape up the contacts and carry a print out of the faa regulations on flying with batteries and have no trouble.

PhozoKozmos: so, this means what?
devices using Lithium batteries cannot be shipped by air at all?

ive had Lithium batteries for ages
never encountered any fire
never encountered a store burn down that supplies such batteries
camera shops?
retailers?
bestbuys?
walmarts?
Costcos?
cornerstores?
convenient stores?
no contract smartphones? (pre-packaged smartphones)
etc

what's going on?
have battery standards gone downhill all of a sudden?

have "universal constants" gone rogue?!?!? :D

is it time for "wireless power" that works beyond "close proximity"?!?!

ok, never mind ...
i don't have any 100W+ battery smartphone ...

you are profoundly ignorant.

goblin: The calibration shims between the lens mount and lens of even my lowliest kit 4/3 lenses shiver at their newly found uselessness... How do these guys solve variations confidently enough to allow manual mount change ?

I, too, didn't believe it mattered till I saw what a non-brand 4/3 <> m43 adapter (which works perfectly at focal lengths as low as say 11mm) does to 9mm and 7mm lenses (hint: a "tunnel vision" lens).

Or do the mounts have to be ordered at the time of the lens purchase ?

Or does it not matter in video ?

I’m not sure of your question exactly but as with the Zeiss Compact primes the mounts can be removed by removing screws and then using the allocated shims that come with each lens mount. It’s a pretty fool proof system.

noegd: Could they actually share optics with the just announced SLR magic lenses? The range is suspiciously close, with the 18mm coming soon in both cases.

Pretty sure they use Kinefinity Mavo Prime parts.

Pinionist: I'm wondering how they can achieve 13 stops of dynamic range with 4/3 sensor ? Isn't this like a bit too small sensor for such depth ?

What makes you think sensor size and dynamic range are related?

shoomer: another problem is with Canon and Nikon that the a new mirrorless camera might require new mount and this will destroy the investment of most photographers.. will they all willing to bite the bullet to see their few thousands or few 10 thousands value worth of their lens suddenly be worthless or devalued and move to mirrorless alternative?

or you could just avoid the apocalypse and buy an electronic converter like what canon did with the EOS to EOS-M line and make your library of lenses 100% compatible.

Ebrahim Saadawi: I don't really get it: Is this RAW? If so, what does it have to do with the ProRes designation (which is a codec, a compression scheme). And It's smaller than ProRes 444, yet will offer higher image quality?

I can't wrap my head around (RAW) and (ProRes).

Is this just another new compressed RAW format like Canon Raw Lite, R3D, etc?

It has all the advantages of raw (like asa and colour temp adjustment) and all the advantages of prores( can play and edit in any editor without transcoding) if you shoot any other brand of raw it requires transcoding to a file that final cut or premiere can work with.

NDT0001: The fans on my Macbook pro retina 2013 now go crazy whenever i run this Lightroom version. This has never happened before... They run at what seems like 80-90% and are VERY loud. Previous versions of LR, they remained silent.

You must have a problem there Chris, once it finished indexing faces, it was back up to speed and virtually no lag on a 30k library over 2 external SSD drives.

I worked out that it is the face detect indexing my library. If i pause it or disable "auto face detection" in the Lightroom/Catalog Settings/Metadata menu it stops it.

Ebrahim Saadawi: In any of the numbers or any of the footage there's no way this is a special LL sensor, and a C300II/Fs7II would most likely give much less noise at these 800/3200 ISOs.

Even if it's good in LL, I think they mean "by Red standards". And the titles about space, RED BRINGS SPACE TO EARTH don't help, especially when a 30K$ C700FF was just released!

Things like DPAF, A7s-type ISO, 240p FF, these are the stuff that actually increase a camera's worth these days.

haha

I suppose basic is all relative to your expectations.

PJ's will love this feature. Shoot video and stills at the same time to separate media . So easy.

Techo: Doesn't feel right for this to be a cash prize sort of contest. $12,500 for a win. hmmm

I’m 100% sure none of the photographers had a monetary prize in mind when shooting their photos so i think a cash prize is not an inappropriate means of recognition.

GodSpeaks: Let me know when RED has a shipping product. Until then I will ignore anything RED has to say.

They currently offer at least 4 body types in 3 sensor configurations from 4.5k up to 8k monstro you can buy without waiting so quit your snivelling.
