    Great to see it is out and be soon ready for sale. Impressive practical everyday codecs (XAVC), new sensor, no overheating, affordable.
    Hope they included Venice colours. People question their marketing or Betatesters.....hahhaa. Funny very funny..

    At least Phil seems to be primarily RED.

    Watching guys like laforet and bloom ‘shill’ ?

    At least Phil’s loyal to a brand. Newsshooter seems like a good neutral reviewer.

    YouTube personalities, or YouTube cinematographers like bloom and laforet, you can’t trust a thing they say.

    Phil uses a lot of cameras too, but you never see him saying the newest canon beats his REDs, because it’s new.$

    Companies need to choose better beta testers, bloggers/vloggers are not those people.
    Did they do it well?

    *snickers*

    There's nothing to gain by me spoiling upcoming camera releases from various manufacturers, not a single thing. In fact that does more damage than good. Companies got their tight circles and that's good. A trusted professional perspective is highly valuable to a manufacturer. Most just want feedback.

    It's an interesting premise, I mean most cameras that people see at the end of the line have been in development somewhere between 5-1 years, occasionally something done quicker. Often there are various prototypes along the way, one offs, things a lot of people don't get to see that might end up in a future release or not. Don't mind talking recent leak history, but Sony avoided a debacle during the A7rIII release cycle as images were leaked from what became the A7rIV before the previous model was even released that somehow ended up being uploaded to Flickr of all places at full resolution with metadata in tact. This happened in the public's view for the few that caught onto it. That was silly and sort of the worse case scenario short of walking into a competitors office with unmarked prototype housed in a previous generation's camera body.

    Trust probably is the most valuable asset honestly in this space. Applies to production work as well. For instance, I shot a project 1.5 years ago for an unreleased product that's soon to hit market. That's moderately the norm for me, but you go about your business, do the work, then chat about things once appropriate or allowed. There's stuff I've shot I can't talk about publicly either and that's personally the hardest stuff, but that's the client's discretion. Though a bummer not to include even on my site or anything. I just make pretty pictures for a living and go from there.

    Who says this beats this or that.? Like that quote about Ursa mini 12k...Not that long ago most of top feature movies have been shot on camera not even 4K.
    WTF? They are all options for working cameramen making money every day. You might be shocked but 50% percent of my clients are PAYING me to shoot FHD

    Yes, they did. Not sure if that was a question or implying otherwise, so I answered the question, which I know for a fact is "yes, they did."
