              ALl shots have been far beter than what ive ever seen on this channel. Not sure if the RED is actually being used yet. I think the company has waisted a SHIT load of money on RED. Ive said it before, its way overkill for YTers

              Your OverPriced Video Cams weren't a mistake. it just that the technology and now cost! of todayz technology simply DIDN'T exist a year and a half ago. ALSO: The Mark ll is being designed as you all read this.

              PS, You ALL now have No More excuses for NOT! shooting something that could go on NETFLIX or the BIG Screen.

                    must watch.. RED MINI-MAG are just ordinary SSD's you could buy for about 300$ they are just rebranding them..
                    even the capacity is wrong..

                      I've always wondered why do you guys need a better camera than what they used to film the Hobbit to make a YouTube tech reviews channel

                        Even this camera is total overkill for Youtube. Most of the work would be perfectly done by better camcorder.

                          Can we get a behind the scenes where we find out what the casting call for this video looked like? "Models wanted for... uh.. Well let's just get right to the qualifications: Ability to wear blue eye-shadow. Ability to look at the camera in 'sultry' mode. Ability to demonstrate walking, on a variety of surfaces. Asians strongly preferred, but not required." lmao

                                                camera guy here. You lost me @ 13 stops of dynamic range. that's 2 stops less than a budget mirrorless. and 8+ stops away from human vision.

                                                Its also why the images looked flat (im guessing)

                                                    You lost me at micro 4:3. The ergonomics are still amateur level. We don't use these cameras in broadcast.
