    Don't underestimate just how precise you need to be setting back focus for wide angle lenses.

    Regardless of what CPU type is used, I think the more critical issue for RedUsers is Metal development. Otherwise, it's a CUDA world and the Apple/NVIDIA feud is the killer.

    I'd imagine there are quite a few advancements working in unison to improve IQ. I'd also note that in addition to the large artifacts normally associated with CMOS smear, I'd expect some of the more...

    Huge fan of 1.3X anamorphic, particularly the Hawk V-Lites. The are some fabulous 2X anamorphic pieces out there. That said, IMO, there are far too many that seem to think anamorphic is a substitute...

    We have a Lilliput and I would not recommend it. Dull image, useless in daylight. Ours is robustly encased, like road gear should be - that said, it's heavy to schlep around and lacks easy attachment...

    Electronic global shutter, not mechanical, on CMOS sensors is a welcome advancement. The next frontier is HFR. I'd also love to see a soft shutter option to reduce judder and time aliasing. Could I...

    What if you mounted an anamorphic lens rotated 90 to squeeze the horizontal dimension to fit a skinny raster capable of higher frame rates. For example - 3.56:1 using 2X to deliver 1.78:1 after the...
