    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...

    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...

    Now that the firmware has been through a few iterations, do we know the max data rate for Komodo HQ?

    Since the introduction of RED MiniMags, 300MB/s has been the hurdle to clear. Not sure what...

    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...

    I wonder if they can fit 16 high performance cores/16 graphics cores/64GB RAM in a single 5nm process SOC? That could be juicy.

    Theoretically, with the low TDP of the ASi SOCs, you could do a...
