    I wouldn't have one, but it holds up fairly well in 2021. Back when this thing was new, 2K was "enough" according to other manufacturers (which was code for "we don't know how to do 4K yet"). To be fair, there isn't much benefit to 4K if your maximum frame rate is only 30fps. But, to be doubly fair, this camera wasn't necessarily made for commercials and music videos.

    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    I would totally have one with the REDMAG module for studio work for sure!

    Yes! I called for RED to open source the RED One a couple years ago. This video highlights even more reasons why that needs to happen.

    That would be really awesome. I doub't they would do it though. Maybe it might be cool to do an 20th anniversary release of SSDs or CF cards haha.

    I've been saying for years that RED needs to add some final additions to the RED One system, namely a new media module for either standard SSDs or Cfast or other new memory card standard. If they could add a new RED LCD that's not so hard to source LCDs for and maybe a 1080p minimum video output board upgrade that would be cool too!

    I believe the price of the camera goes up after his video.
