    i would still think RED should consider the CFexpress for komodo, it's not too late. if it seems like everything is going that way then it would be much better to be working with canon and red and using the same cards, and batteries for that matter.

    Komodo is only 6k and with CFast giving sustained write speeds over 450 MB/s https://www.angelbird.com/prod/av-pr...0/?category=79, you don't need CFExpress being RED (the others would).

    FWIW, I think CFast is perfect for the Komodo. The cards are readily available and prices per GB are already dropping. Moreover, it's hard to imagine that a device as small as the Komodo could write to media at much more than 400MB/s without TDP issues, specifically cooling. With RedCode, I just don't think going past 350MB/s is worth it - unless you can magically get a camera as tiny as the Komodo to process significantly higher data rates without melting down. Not to mention, a data footprint of a GB/s is hardly what the target market for Komodo is looking for.

    I suppose it ties back to the REDCODE RAW patent that specifies the utilization of a SATA interface for recording RAW files, which means RED is bound to SATA HDD/SSD, mSATA SSD, and CFast media or they run afoul of someone else's patent and must pay licensing/royalties. Regardless, CFExpress was designed and approved by all of RED's biggest competitors for use in their future products, so it was made specifically for 4K and higher resolution video cameras that utilize RAW or high-resolution recording at high-data rates.

    Well RED can also use CFExpress when the want to.
    Their patent is for SATA (hence not valid for PCIe or other non SATA protocols/buses/connections/etc..).

    Just reread the patent, which I now have bookmarked because it's light bedtime reading these days as it comes up every other day. The patent calls out SATA, IDE, USB 2.0, etc. But more importantly stipulates "without limitation". We know nothing, but perhaps there's some love between RED and Canon we aren't aware of even.

    and the raven and scarlet-w only needed 120gb mags with lower speeds, until you upgraded cameras, then you had to get rid of it, im just saying for the future it would be nice to invest in one type of card, then you could also play nicely with canon, same cards, batteries and even some lenses.

    Canon C500 Mark II | First Look





    By
    B&H Photo Video











    Canon has just announced the return of the EOS C500 Cinema Camera with the new C500 Mark II. The biggest feature of this new cinema camera is that Canon has added a 5.9k full-frame sensor capable of over 15 stops of dynamic range to bridge the gap for documentary and feature filmmakers.

    The newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor expands functionality and flexibility by enabling features such as 5.9k recording, internal recording of Canon Cinema Raw Light, and Dual Pixel Autofocus with support for Touch AF and Face Detection AF. Three expansion units and compatibility with EF and PL* lenses with user changeable lens mounts enable operators to build their ideal cinema system. The new system also includes anamorphic lens support and electronic image stabilization, making it a great option for filmmakers who want flexibility and portability.

    By "doco" do you guys mean unscripted work and not literally work on documentaries? Because these mid-range cameras such as the C300 and Fs7 do all sorts of work. They do the 95% of video production that RED cameras and ARRI cameras are not used for. They are the work-horses of the industry and not a specialty camera. RED and ARRI are more specialty or "niche" cameras than the Canon and Sony cameras.

    Even if this were the case (it’s not), do you think RED is sleazy for actually doing just that?
