Can anyone at RED answer...
Can I upgrade the LCD on the 2/3" Fixed Lens Scarlet from the 2.5" to a more comfortable 5" touchscreen LCD?
Also is there any news or specs to what SSD's we can expect to be using. I know 1.8" SSD's. Are RED going to issue their own? and what are the specs going to be? Most 1.8" SSD drives seem to be ablout 80MB/s write speed and 200-250MB/s sustained is this sufficient for the Scarlet's Redcode 100 codec?
And Red didn't make the 5/7D's. Why would you think they'd start introducing problems that not only don't exist w/ the Red One but have also been mentioned by the Red team as being siginifcant detriments to using the current crop of still cameras for motion work?
What you brought up simply isn't a problem w/ Red now... and there is no reason to believe it will be in any of their future cameras.
Sakes I really hope we make the projected May-June release.
my fingers will be perpetually crossed.
Depth of field is a function of the size of the image at the image plane. So for any given camera system, DOF is a direct function of the size of the sensor. Larger sensors have inherently more shallow DOF than do smaller sensors.
You can manipulate DOF in three ways: 1) camera to subject distance, 2) focal length, and 3) aperture. So with a given composition on a 35mm sized sensor, the same COMPOSITION (size of the subject in the frame) with the same camera to subject distance and aperture setting will produce a more shallow DOF on a larger sensor and greater DOF on a smaller sensor. It just so happens that to produce the same composition on a 2/3" (or roughly 16mm sized) sensor requires about half the focal length (or a little less) in lensing than a 35mm sensor does.
(Of course, one must keep in mind that a 35mm still camera has a larger image area than does a 35mm motion picture camera, so comparisons of lens focal lengths demands clarification as to which "35mm system" you are referencing.)
Some DPs/Directors find it easier to think the other way around and start with focal length rather than sensor size... which is why people refer to "35mm equivalent" for the 2/3" Scarlett (for example). Ultimately, one should choose the system that serves the shooter's needs best. For many (especially ENG,) having a smaller sensor makes it easier to focus in a run & gun situation because there is inherently greater DOF within the system.
Probably more info than you need, but since several have asked, I felt compelled to offer it.
In principle yes, but as a practical matter this data needs to be published in a formal SDK before that integration work could start.So does this mean that I can export camera movement data to Cinema 4D, AE, Maya, Motion, etc?
Same holds true for Scarlett, I imagine. It comes down to what lenses you're invested in by the time you decide which Scarlett imager to go with.
Ah. Exciting nonetheless.
