He he, in deed Steve, we do have two shoots in NY, but was hopping to meet up with Mark @ OffHollywood, I guess next time ;)
I'm loving every shot you guys have put out there. The detail and DR is just taking my breath away. I know this has been a huge amount of work for you all. Thank you for sharing your time with us.
I noticed on the video, even in a room, the fan noise - until you hit record - was a bit loud. So, Im wondering what if one is shooting in the Bahamas in 100 degrees for 1 hour with no or little breaks... am I gonna fry the camera?
Since, I'm really looking at the Scarlet, which should be cooler literally with a smaller chip - less heat... Should I worry about shooting on 100 degree beaches for an hour or so? My Nikon melted... it wasn't working - it over exposed everything even though I was on manual trying to fix it and my EX-1 seemed to add a ton noise due to the temp.
I want to buy an Scarlet, but will it fry shooting in 100+ degrees for hours at a time?
I'm sure if Epic will, Scarlet will... A few more questions... will the camera shut off before it fries like a humidity indicator - which happens in the tropics?
I'm very nervous about frying my new RED Scarlet, so will it protect itself from heat and humidity, or do I need a cold pack. Thanks.
Lastly how long do the grip only batteries last in the scarlet shooting 2k at 30fps?
So... yes, there is a limit just as with every camera. But you can use these cameras in just about any situation and make them work.
Conversely, if you are shooting in the cold you will likely turn the fans down or off (very cold). There is an AUTO setting that will help you through this. The range of these cameras is very wide. The fans are designed to keep you in the range. Remember that you have the capability to shoot 5K at 120fps. That is a miracle in and of itself. The fan management is part of what lets you shoot this kind of data at 100F.
In room temperature... you can set the fans to be very quiet in standby and silent for recording. Silent recording is an option at all temps. The hotter it gets the higher the fans should be in standby.
Everyone was afraid of the RED ONE over-heating. We haven't heard a single complaint for years. This is partly due to heat management system we put in and partly due to the fact that customers have recognized when they need to step in and put a white umbrella over the camera when it sits in the desert all day.

The fan is not at all unreasonably "loud". And that's without factoring in how much horsepower that is being used within such a small container...
