I just want to 31st this request. Cruicial timesaver, besides avoiding embarrassing second takes after a reboot.
You guys need to stop calling bugs features. Having ANY critical camera setting change when rebooting is just plain wrong.
O.K I'll offer you my standard answer to this kind of bug / feature debate then....
There are features, there are bugs and there are characteristics.
Features are pretty obvious - they provide a desired operational function.
Bugs are obvious too - something that is supposed to work doesn't.
Characteristics lie in the middle. As in that's an operational characteristic.
- This may be something you rather the system didn't do, but it is what the system is supposed to do in that circumstance.
Now to the Phantom Power issue. On Rev A audio boards, this is its operational characteristic.
However on Rev B audio boards the latest firmware - Build 18 V3.6.4 - will maintain Phantom Power (if enabled) across power cycles.
Thanks Stuart - I'm REALLY pleased phantom power will be staying on! Having to do retakes for losing sound has been a real pain.
For those mounting a shotgun on the camera. Make sure your mic cradle is well cushioned as some cradles will pick up vibration from the RED Drive if it's mounted on the rails (at least with the carbon rails) which sounds like a nasty 20hz hum on the sound track.
Looks like build 3.6.4 is still buggy as it relates to Phantom power. When switched on, then camera is rebooted, it still shows 48V on the screen BUT it doesn't seem to be providing the power. Turning 48V off and on again enables it, so functionally there's no change from build 17 v3.4.1 to build 18 v3.6.4.
Tested using Mogami 48V mic.
Note that this function only works with the Rev B audio board.
But if you see this happening with a Rev B board (on cameras since Sept 15) please send me a P.M.
