When will we here more about the stills functionality of these new cams?
Since I am a documentary shooter of both stills and motion, I was hoping that Red could be my only camera(s) but after reading about a 10-15 startup time I am beginning to wonder if the Scarlet/Epic will be for stills, the same as the EOS cams are to video. ie you still need cam dedicated cam for each function.
Right now, I have the HPX500, 5D, 5DMII, and 1DMIII. I wanted the Red 1 but there was a waiting list when I needed the 500 ;(... While the DOF of the MII is nice I can not use use for professional video work due to its many limitations/flaws but for stills it's pretty good. I can turn it on and take a photo in 1/2 second but the shutter lag is an irritating 73ms, and it's autofocus tends to hunt.
I know most people here are film makers but since the new cams are being billed as still/motion hybrid it would be nice to hear a little more info about that aspect for us hybrid shooters.
Key questions for me are....
Compatible format?(Will I still be able to use my favorite image editing software?)
Where will the autofocus quality be?(5D-ish or 1D-ish)
Sleep mode for stills? (10-15 seconds is ok for video but not for stills)
Shutter Lag? (at or under 50ms?)
Highest shutter speed? (8k or higher I hope)
If I come to Red Day can I find out some of this info?
