  1. #1 I'm new with the Red Epic Dragon 6k - Help 
    Hello everyone, I have been using the Canon cameras for quite sometime - 5d Mkii, C300, C300 mkii I just bought a Red Epic Dragon 6k a few days ago and now slowly trying to learn it. It is a major setup in the learning curve. I have a few questions trying to find the right direction I need to go with this camera.

    Can someone perhaps point Fred in the direction of an article or video? Somewhere, there must be a decent guide to getting started with Red cameras.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    I mean, I'm biased, but.....

    I wrote this many moons ago for exactly this purpose:
    https://gumroad.com/l/RED_DSMC_FOG

    This was after several years of answering questions, tests, workshops, and private instruction.

    Interestingly much of it still applies to this day minus some DSMC2 specific stuff.

    Covers a broad range of topics, how to use in camera exposure and focus tools, best practices, etc.

    Just bought your guide, Phil. I'm working on a new project using our REDs for the first time in a while and capturing a lot of stuff as a solo operator for the first time (at least for a formal project). Thank so much for putting something like this out there. I can already tell it's tremendously useful.

    I will check into that. We have an up coming shoot in CA Desert this summer and I'm sure it going to be very hot temperature that we will be filming in.
