Thoughts on Scarlet?
on Nov 4, 2011 at 3:11:38 am

It's been a big day in the pro video industry. A new Media Composer, a new cinema camera from Canon, and finally, the Scarlet.

I'm looking into purchasing the scarlet as it seems to me to be the one to get over the Canon, but I was wondering what you all think about it. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks!

Well it's like they said. RED brought a bazooka to a knife fight!
I'm impressed. Also with firmware updates things will get better.

Here is a few nice links:

RAW IMAGE CAPTURE is my biggest criteria for digital motion imaging systems.

If I can get that in 4K or 5K, then it makes life even better and to me it means it's more like I am shooting film (in an archival sense) than on video (in a tape sense).

The Scarlet can only be seen as more good news from RED.

Red continues to drag the industry kicking and screaming into the future. Canon, in contrast, seems only interested in holding us back - "The industry isn't ready for 4k". WTF?

While I, like many, feel a little disappointed in the restricted frame rates, we have to bear in mind that what we complain is missing didn't exist before Epic. For under $10k this camera is a decision already made.

Cheers

I also thought that Canon as such a potential DLSR developer presents more as they did. In comparision the scarlet really looks fine - but just in comparision. Remember what enormous range of Scarlet modells RED announced. But I'm still extremly excited to a hopefully soon delivery of my EPIC.
Cheers

Scarlet will do what the Red One does now in terms of resolution and frame rates (4k @ 30 FPS). Plus it will shoot 5K, but only at 12FPS. Remember though it has HDRX (high dymanic range) options and the size of the camera is great !

One reason not to get the scarlte is that it does not have a DTE (direct to edit) option at this time. YOu shoot in a file - R3D and have to transcode to most edit systems.
