    Looks like a pretty cool camera. Especially shooting to an HDMI capture card...

    im going to sell my 100a, buy this camera.. and rehouse it.
    I dont want to bring a small camcorder to a professional gig.. so I will rehouse it in a much more solid and professional housing.. (it will still be compact)
    Great piece of gear for B-roll... maybe we can get the Reel-Streem guys to do some mods!! get a 2k output or close too

    Yes, shooting to Intensity works well. I directed something shot that way last night, actually!

    Zakaree, it has a Cine mode which is pretty decent - gets a flatter dynamic range and less sharpening, similar to (but not as good at, of course...) a Reel-stream mod. I have the famous Stouffer chart used for the Red latitude tests and will post some tests when I have time... at the moment I'm working on a homebuilt sub-$1000 10.6" 720p LCD monitor for it (which has HDMI in so will work with the Red too...) and that is killing me for time (okay, along with, you know, a full time job ;)
    here's some photos of it hooked up to the HV20 - http://www.boacinema.com/projects/lcd_monitor/

    I think the beauty of the HV20 is that it leaves you with more money to spend on other things that don't go out of date - eg lights ;) - or get a 35mm adapter and start buying Nikon lenses that you can use with the Red. I've even considered getting the Red zoom, since the sgpro and Brevis have PL mount adapters...

    Cheers

I can't wait to open that box ! see ya.

    LOL. That's how I got mine...under the pretense of family videos.

    I'm amazed by this camera. I've used it for some brief family stuff and then as a b-camera on bikini shoots. I have to say the quality is very nice, especially when viewing HDMI out to an HD TV.
    I know how to do it. You just wouldn't know it from the way I do it.

    You should just put it in a underwater housing. That would confuse anyone who looked at it:)

    Not with an HV20 you didn't. Its flavor of HDMI doesn't work with the Intensity. You can use the component connections with an Intensity Pro, though.

    To the rhythm that the reduser.net users are buying this new toy, I believe we must ask to Jarred a sub-forum dedicated to this Canon or to the single CMOS chip technology cameras.

    Yes I damn well did! Use Velocity brand HDMI cables. It IS compatible. Went straight into Premiere.

    I'm going to find out soon - was too busy directing performance to worry about the technical stuff. This wasn't my shoot technically - I was just called in to work with the actress. They just happened to be using an HV20 too and had a fancy Intensity setup.
