    Hard for me to write about this publicly, but I'm usually right or bloody close to right about this stuff.

    Until we know exactly what Komodo can do, really an unknown. But I'm betting it's pretty...

    Jarred's mentioned 6K FF @ 40 fps. Komodo adheres to the general RED concept of higher FPS as you change your format/resolution. Traditionally your frame rate is constrained by the vertical pixels,...

    @Jarred - Now that you have a better bead on camera draw and power consumption, can we get Komodo's draw in watts per hour?

    And for the curious and the newer blood in the hood this is how I plan...
  7. Phil's Quick Tips: Camera Recording Media

    Some stuff that's on my mind after the recent award season. A bit off the cuff for me, but with Komodo around the corner and some of the other new cameras out there, this might help in understanding...

    I mainly am looking for a handle with 4-6 buttons for shortcuts.

    But I suspect a wheel for focus will be alarmingly useful in Komodo's case.

    I want more cheese on the body for certain rigs. ...

    Array filming is a bit of a specialty for me over the years and as Björn mentions there's always certain things that you must stay on top of.

    Overlap in general I recommend 20-33%, but if you...

    28-50, no. 28-70, yes.

    Need more mid range zoom cinema options for VV. I'm saying this as I'm mulling over purchasing the Premista 28-100 right now. Takes a lot for a zoom to impress me, but...

    Won't say much about this, but I've been sort of dropping hints for months with statements like "Canon is the sleeping giant" and all that.

    Something has changed there in the last 1-1.5 years.

    On a pure level, it is true the newer bodies and sensor have improved color. But I think there's more minutiae to explore here than that nuance.
