Ever since the RED-DRIVE turned into a mini-RAID, REDFLASH has fallen off of the discussion map. Time for me to bring it back.
Now the last time I saw it was at the L.A. screening. The REDFLASH screwed onto the side of the camera in place of the optical RAW port. If memory serves, it appeared as though the flash "magazine" could be swapped on the fly if it were to fill up.
So, how big are the drives? Either 32GB or 64GB is sticking in my head.
Will additional flash "magazines" be available? Any word on pricing? I have to assume that they'll be [significantly?] less than the <$1,000 RED-DRIVE.
The single RED-DRIVE was upgraded to a mini-RAID for bandwidth issues... I'm assuming the REDFLASH was reworked from an engineering standpoint to handle 4K REDCODE RAW bandwidth.
Will there be some device that one could plug a flash "magazine" into that could interface with a computer to bypass using the camera for footage importing?
Will there be any sort of contact covers or case included with the magazines? I hate to draw the comparison, but akin to a P2 card's plastic covers?
Any chance of a render or image of Spike's REDFLASH [assuming he/she has one] to see how they look?
Thanks! Sorry for being long-winded as usual.
