Taking stills with Scarlet-X
on Feb 4, 2015 at 1:41:48 am

I've seen multiple sources claiming that the Scarlet-X can take 5K stills, but absolutely nothing saying how. When using the camera I can see no way to do this other than choosing a still from video footage in post. Is there a way to do this? Many thanks.

Hi Rinny,

How I do it is to get screen grabs from the video, exporting it out as tiff images.

The benefit of this is that you get to have a burst of images to pick from. However I have not been able to use it with a strobe. So I still do shoot stills with a DSLR

Hi Rinny,

What I do is to pick a frame and do an export to TIFF format. It doesn't really function like a still camera where you can trigger the flash from the camera(although that might have changed). So I still use a stills camera instead of a Red when I need to light the scene with strobes.
