First heard about it from a cow-orker :) , and been in love with it ever since. I can't wait to actually see it in real life. I'm trying to convince our company to transition from Ikegamis to Red Cameras. For you fellow geeks who can't read enough about it...

Not too fast!

The Ikegamis are broadcast cameras and there's the term "broadcast" even in your company name.

While the RED One can deliver stunning images (we own one), it can not deliver them fast. Trying to get deliverables immediately out of the camera will not use the camera to it's full potential and might look even weaker than other cameras. Ordinary pro "video" cameras allow a lot of tweaking of the image in camera and can produce images ready to broadcast right away.

With the RED digital "film" camera all of this has been moved into post, think of going through a "lab" like in traditional film, and serious processing power is needed for that. That's why the RED is perfect for fictional work, but not for documentary. Well, can be fine for nature/wildlife, but definitely not news, sports, soap etc. There was even somebody selling his brand-new read again after finding out about this.

So, make yourself familiar with the workflow and think twice before ordering.

Hope this helps,

Uli, what would you say would be the number one need for Red users in terms of software? What capabilities does a software package need to give you to do your job faster?

Kind regards,

Scott
