  1. Is it now possible to revisit the original dream?

    Hi,

    I just did my semi-annual check of red.com to see if there might be a Red for the rest of us in the works. Moore's law, general advances, learning curves, amortization of fixed costs, and...

    I am so SICK of 24 FPS film snobs. "The Hobbit" was shot with the finest cameras in the world (Red Epic) at the highest data rate possible. >3X better...

  4. Discount B-Stock Scarlets For 1080p Constrained?

    Hi,

    I was wondering if the Scarlet firmware allows for the disabling of dead pixels, replacing them with a median value of nearest neighbors. If so, I was wondering if it might be possible to...

    I am hoping that the same spirit of innovation and creativity will bring on the Methuselarity so that death will be an option, not an irrevocable sentence. To that end, everyone should be pressing...

    "After months of trying to sell my wife..."

    At first I thought that the original poster was taking the Rodney Dangerfield financing approach to buying their Scarlet.

    I hope they play up the monetary allegory aspects of the story. Maybe a general audience, perhaps even the kids, can see the wisdom of sound money (gold standard) after seeing it.

    Then how about this: Offering discount S35 "refurb cameras" where a limited number of dead pixels are median filter fixed in firmware?

    I planned this trip back in November when Red first announced they were attending NAB. Of course I was majorly bummed when they decided to cancel, and even more bummed when I had our return flight...
