  1. #1 The Horror of dead pixels 
    So we have a Sony HDCam Camera. Now there are too many dead pixels for the electronics to hide them. Sony would like to charge 20K plus and labor to put in a new pixel block. Yes I know about Lucke. They don't support these cameras.
    Sony tech says "maybe caused by flying in airplanes too much"???? Cosmic rays???

    So a question for the RED team. after a while even a mysterium will get dead pixels. Heck most sensors have some right out of the box. What are the limits about hiding them? What are the approximate costs to replace a sensor.

    If traveling by plane is a legitimate issue that could cause dead pixels, it would be cool if RED created (of course after the dust settles since they have too much on their plate) a nice futuristic looking case lined with lead making RED safe for travel in the skies.

    Yeah, and the box has to glow red as you open it so that your face and anyone standing nearby is consumed in the light lol... it'd be like a non-digital filmakers Kryptonite encased in lead

    I'm sure that would go real well with airport security: A giant lead-lined case with a glowing red orb on the front.

    "Can I see inside sir?"
    "No. The cosmic rays will destroy the mysterium inside."

    My understanding of checked baggage X-ray procedures, from an old Kodak white paper, is that when they scan across a lead film bag they simply "dial it higher", increasing the radiation until they CAN see the contents... which is why Kodak was recommending NOT using the lead bags... ultimately the film would be ruined.

    Jim that is truly amazing....
    Who ever thought that ex. fast food workers would be in charge of the nations security.
    They must hate anything wrapped in foil?
