Not sure really why everything has always to be derailed on here...
Come guys, why does it always has to be this way, is almost tiring to read all the time, this is a RED FORUM, of course every one here is BIAS to RED products,
otherwise they would be at the Canon or Arri forum!!
I love Canon, been Photographing with their cameras for over 20 years!!
I love Arri, they have been making some of the best Film and now the best Cine/Video Digital cameras,
in cooperation with Zeiss, they have made the absolute BEST Cine Glass the world has ever seen, "The Master Primes" of course.
Canon has cameras, as does Arri, the Alexa and the new Alexa M are stunningly fatastic products, but why, for the love of GOD!! Even try to compare them to EPIC!!
Is like photographers that disscuss with me comparison of a 7D with a Hasselblad Medium Format Sensor @ 65MP, and argue that the images look the same, HA HA HA... PLEASE...
Alexa is a great camera, and so is every other camera out there, just each is different to its technological advancement and what they offer, each is meant for a purpose...
NONE is meant to compete with EPIC, why?? Because they have absolute no standing GROUND to do so... ;)
Story telling has always been my only goal and dream in life since childhood, the equipment that we use, does indeed shape how we do and tell this stories,
but should always be an implementation of this tools, not anything else but.
Oh... and once again... CONGRATS JIM and TEAM for yet and other GIANT win on this ever TUFF Hollywood world, well deserved,
as you guys have made a truly INSANELY FANTASTIC piece of machinery that is like nothing I ever used!!
this is a very big bump... the kind that will leave a bruise.
were is he gonna put them all.... :)
Need some serious storage facilities...:)
Bye bye film cameras.... :(
This is it
Since the giant brains at Weta have probably developed a massively efficient pipeline for Epic 3D with The Hobbitt, and since Weta will be doing (I imagine) all the major CG on Avatar II, it seems eminently logical for Cameron to go with Epic. He's probably seen all the Hobbitt's tests and even the dailies from shooting so far. (I imagine that Cameron and Weta share information fairly freely since he's a fairly large client, and is an encyclopedia of 3D & CG knowledge himself.) What can he be planning to do with 50 cameras though? I wonder if he'll place the first huge order for Leica Summilux-C glass, as well.
Omg....Totally, Ketch! That DSLR vs MFDB debate has been beat to DEATH on numerous forums! I carry both and each has it's applications.
Congratulations RED team, RED owners, and RED users :)
back on topic though, makes me wonder what the Alexa M's are gonna be for, 50 Epics is hopefully avatar 2... the stuff signed with Arri, side projects? B cams? who knows, the man has enough money to anything he wants. But this sure further proves that Epic is the camera of choice for 3d application hands down.
To get back to the original title, I gulped 'cause I thought it might be Jim Cameron buys ... RED... :)
