    There are easier ways to do this shoot, but shooting against black as Dylan suggests is also my preference.

    Lighting a car is really all about the reflections and edges.

    If you already have SuperSpeeds, then that would be my choice too.

    Still photo lenses have an interesting look. I immediately thought of the Leica R when reading this thread, although I've only...

    How little you understand the little marvel you are using.

    Too long my friend! Hope all is well.

    You don't have a picture of that setup actually in operation on one of your cameras do you?

    You can convert the SDI to wireless HDMI using your last SDI loop through, perhaps back at video village.

    Or Meizler when its available for 802.11 wireless.

    Its pretty exciting.

    I haven't played with one yet ... but I am thinking the same thing ... +1 Module or Meizler ALL THE TIME.

    Dual EVF never occurred to me though. Do your ACs appreciate that?

    Let me get this straight ...

    You have a Red Scarlet.

    In a world where feature films have been shot on Canon 7D and 5DMK2 DSLR's. Craptacular 8bit subsampled cameras that don't even have decent...

    Everyone is spot on, but I want to emphasize that you NEED more RAM.

    So, if you do nothing else, go get more RAM. Just buy all you can afford for your Mac.

    If you have a 2010 or later Mac 24GB...

    I recommend rolling your own PC right now. The prebuilts gaming machines lack a few key features. (That will change in the coming months, but not just yet.)

    CS6 Cloud seems to be the way to go,...

    This is a stock 8 core Mac Pro 2010. Its $3499 new from Apple, slightly less elsewhere.

    I have one too, and will also entertain cash offers.

    I agree with what you say about Red and their products ...

    I just think you unfairly discount DSLR's. I think I've shot perhaps one shot at f/1.2 and maybe five shots at f/1.4. I generally shoot...

    Its about the style of work you do.

    I tend to get involved in projects with a lot of effects work that I composite.

    I see Smoke as Media Composer with Nuke all rolled up into one.

    Well, it really is just over exposure. But you are getting there an odd way.

    The native sensitivity of the R1 MX is EI320 and the Epic/Scarlet are at EI800. Despite the cute settings on the...

    Hmmm ... this depends a lot on what you plan on shooting with and for.

    For Epic 5K I really recommend full frame SLR lenses, and their derivatives.

    Of course I'm ot very impressed with RedVolt, so I plan on using that sort of system with Epic.

    I recommend the full frame lenses, because they are better lenses.

    That said, I have yet to have a problem with any APS C lens I've tried.

    I'm going to buy the BMD Cinema Camera.

    Its not a Red.

    Its roughly comparable to a Scarlet at 3K. Both cameras have a similar sensor area.

    Scarlet shoots 48fps RAW and can crop the sensor to...

    You are absolutely right that 709 scopes not useful for absolute exposure control of raw footage.

    That statement is an oxymoron.

    Film shot at any frame rate looks like film.

    Oh, that couldn't have anything to do with Public Enemies being shot on an early F900 and Lawless being shot on an Alexa?

    Those are two radically different cameras!
