    Great thread. Like many, I consider the Sigmas the reference point for price/performance. The real kicker, at least in my world, is how small the Sigmas are. From the owner/op perspective, you want a...

    This looks like a winner. If anyone has worked with the TB50 unit, please share your thoughts here on RU.

    FWIW, you might be best off with a second power source dedicated to the Teradek and FF RX. I can see a lot of benefit to building out a cheese plate solution that hosts the Teradek, FF RX and battery...

    FWIW, I always set on camera ISO to 800 for consistency in judging the monitor image. To get the most "meat" into the data set, I like to change the iris while watching the histogram and look for the...

    Have not tried Spark personally and their website is short on tech specs.

    Did not see specific coverage numbers for the T Series lenses on the PV site. There was a mention of coverage for DXL on their AZL10 T-series zoom. It supports 7K at all settings and 8K from 44mm and...

    Even IF Komodo has only 12.2 stops of useable DR, that should be plenty for all but corner cases. Even with HDR, how many displays can actually show more than 10 stops? Yes, it's nice to have...

    At the risk of stating the obvious, the farther in the future DSMC3 drops - the longer you'll have to ROI your current RED.

    Just sayin'

    Considering the performance level of current offerings and the healthy demand for Komodos, I see no reason to rush DSMC3 to market.

    As others have noted, RED has a lot more competition than early...

    The Sony holds chroma much better in the shadows. It's a low light beast.

    The BMPCC6K can struggle with mixed lighting types/temps.

    Jim, Jarred and the RedTeam can name their products whatever they want. You can decide to purchase them, or not.

    That said, RedUser is a customer feedback platform. In that context, I would...

    There are several aspects of the RED camera architecture that impact image characteristics. Additionally, to one degree or another, they are interactive.

    That said, IMHO, the key is that...

    Thanx for doing this! Been wanting the ability to reposition the side handle since it came out.

    To expand on Marc's note:

    Recently watched Tenet in 4K from the UltraHD HDR Blu-Ray disc. In order to get the dialog loud enough to understand, I had to turn up the volume about 8dB higher than...

    Thanx Matthew for the description of how going to, and back from, film can impart a desired look. With enough time and budget, the OP might be able to achieve their goal by creating a pipeline that...

    +1 to Mike P.'s comments. My go to diffusion is a 1/8 HBM.

    Since the OP wants to feature the blooms/halos to achieve a particular look, it might make sense to try some heavier filters - double...

    Even at those prices, I'd wager they will not guarantee precise color matching.

    Digital post workflows with precise control over key image characteristics offer the opportunity to really dial in...

    FWIW, I'd invest in a more robust post process long before I'd pour cash into creating film prints from DI. I'd investigate the nuances of gamma characteristics, micro-contrast rendition, etc per the...

    In REDs defense, even the well established lens makers weren't thinking beyond S35 for motion work when the RPPs landed. RED has been ahead of the curve in many ways, but even the Madman doesn't have...

    IMO, the Komodo provides a small form factor camera suitable for a huge range of use cases. It's no Monstro, but the IQ is high enough for 99% of applications.

    Because we have the Komodo, what's...
