    You set the date when you turn the camera on to a couple months ahead of time or a couple months back and when the camera turns off, there’s a little click process that refreshes the sensor pixels.

    I have sent mine in for dead pixels the first time, and overheating the second time, then it didn't turn back on. Just got it back and am returning it for a refund. I wish I could say I got a chance to enjoy the footage at least but it was hands down the worst experience I've ever had with a camera.

    P6K for me. I have the P4K and love the thing and the images coming off of it.

    I greatly appreciate all the experience in the replies.


    However there is quite a price jump to the a7s3. Then the question is that vs komodo.


    For $2k, bm6k or a7riii.

    I am worried why is there still not much Komodo footage out there? Lot of shooters but not much out.

    Komodo is really another beast. A7s3 is much more battery efficient and 256Gb SD card gives you 3h40 of 140mbs UHD 422 10 bit footage.

    Shooting A7s3 is like going on vacation compared to Komodo if you don’t have AC or DIT.

    1 small battery last for nearly 2 hours.

    The Sony holds chroma much better in the shadows. It's a low light beast.

    The BMPCC6K can struggle with mixed lighting types/temps.

    Not to jam up the thread with another camera, but what are your thoughts about the Panasonic S1H or S5? I have found that the EVA1 using ProRes RAW holds up pretty nicely in a lot of situations but have yet to shoot much on the S1H or S5 which have a similar image to EVA1. Still feel RED has the edge up and down its lineup but certainly the market is flooding with very capable cameras, especially when put into the hands of talented cinematographers. I think where Sony has really excelled wit their mirrorless cameras is AF and low light capability. Blackmagic is capable in a lot of situations and obviously the price is right. To me Komodo is the first RED camera that hits this end of the market and I think when you take IQ, better battery life, AF potential, etc it really makes a compelling argument if you are in the $5-10K range. Below $5K a lot of options where RED just doesn't really compete.
