Thanks for the link, Gavin; that refreshes my memory. That was the dream, but the Epic-S suggests that the Scarlet chassis will be more limited than originally planned. And what will be the pixel processing capacity of Epic? It's hard to imagine that the current Epic chassis will support a 617 sensor, probably not the 645. Clearly a FF sensor can fit in the Epic body, but the computing power to process that bandwidth seems to be the limiting factor being discovered. More pixels, more cooling needed, bigger body. Clearly FF is in the plans, but will it be the Epic body we now see, or the next bigger better brain, called ??????
sigh, 14 pages...
SCARLET = 2/3" 3K sensor with Graeme and Co tasty Wavelet Encryption
FIXED and INTERCHANGABLE (mini primes and more)
EPIC = S35 Sensors and Monstro and More.
S-X - M all depend on kick ass RED FEATURES:
FALL ends the day before the WInter Equinox Dec 20, 2011
My translation of JJ kindness in sharing Red's plan's (despite swearing to not telegraph again due to trolls and haters)
The Moral = Whenever EPIC- X ships is when you can start guessing when EPIC - S will ship and there are going to be thousands of RED ONE loyalists INSANE WITH GLEE...
I wish all 8000 or whatever would all meet in one place for a big kick ass party!
How big is RED STUDIOS again?
I'm going build up a Canon FF lens collection for use with the EPIC-S.
At first my idea is to have the 16-35 2.8, 28-70 2.8 and the 50mm 1.4 lenses.
If in the future the industry does move forward to FF sensors I'll be ready.
But I'd rather not, since I'm not the biggest fan of razor thin DOF and I'm a huge fan of shooting with smaller, more intimate lighting.
Has anyone compared Canon L to other lenses? Ever notice a pink tint? Im going with RPPs for my Epic
If the new electronic RED lenses are in the same price bracket as the current ones, I might get a few someday.
Today I just don't have the dough for that.
Personally I haven't noticed a pink tint to Canon lenses. That said, the sensor on DSLRs can be adjust to compensate for colour shifts and what not (can Epic?)... Regardless, though, doesn't RAW laughs in the face of such tints? I'm not saying Canon glass is as good as even entry-level cineglass (or RPP/RPZs); I'm just saying for $1000 (used) you can get FF coverage on a fairly solid and sharp 24-70mm f2.8 lense that weighs ~2lbs. And with the auto-focusing/racking Canon mount, it just seems that much sweeter for those trying to maximize their $$ with an Epic-S.
