Thoughts about Red, Sony and Canon 4K, by Michael Sutton

Thoughts about Red, Sony and Canon 4K, by Michael Sutton | Technical & Social News | Scoop.it

Posted by Michael Sutton on November 3, 2012

 

"So it was a big week for all us gear heads. Sony announced new cameras and a recorder, Red slashed prices and Canon started to trickle ship C500 EF cameras. One thing that all three companies offer is 4K but only two offer 4K video outputs. I mention this because I think its very important. Codecs get better and workflows become more efficient. Things change down the line as technology progresses. 4K resolution is great but most cannot even view it. It has other benefits obviously but for most of use 1080p is more than sufficient and its where the core work is. I think that all camera companies should have the ability to output full resolution RAW via video outputs so the user can choose what to record to based on their needs. 4K recorders are coming. There are a few now (Codex, Convergent Design) but even more are in the pipeline from AJA and other companies (I cannot get into specifics due to confidentiality, etc). The point is that we will see 4K Cineform, 4K ProRes, 4K DPX, 4K RMF, etc coming to several recorders in the very near future. Many of them offering Uncompressed RAW as well."

"Loom" 4K short film Now Online. From Luke Scott, Ridley Scott & RED

"Loom" 4K short film Now Online. From Luke Scott, Ridley Scott & RED | Technical & Social News | Scoop.it

Posted by Alexandros Maragos on September 26, 2012


"Loom was written and directed by Luke Scott, son of Ridley Scott and nephew of Tony. It features Giovanni Ribisi and Jellybean Howie. Cinematography by the great Dariusz Wolski, ASC. The gorgeous dark short film is a cooperation of RSA Films and RED.

Loom was shot on RED Epic in 4K 3D in the tone and style of Ridley Scott's dystopian Blade Runner to showcase the prototype 4K REDray 3D laser cinema projector. The piece was crafted to test the limits of the colour range and exposure, allowing viewers to see fine details even in extremely low light scenes.

RED initially presented Loom at the 2012 NAB Show on April 2012 and recently President Jarred Land released it online via Reduser, the company's forum."

"TV Technology Europe has recognized FOR-A as a recipient of the publication’s 2012 IBC Show STAR Awards for its FT-ONE full 4K high resolution variable frame rate camera.

The STAR Awards (Superior Technology Award Recipient) honor products that help to advance the broadcast industry. The FT-ONE is the world’s first full 4K super slow motion camera, with the ability to record up to 900 frames per second. Harnessing the power of FOR-A’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor “FT1-CMOS”, the FT-ONE records and plays back full 4K (4096 x 2160.) One output channel can provide full 4K (four 1080p HD-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back."

LIVE NOW: Red Bull Stratos

LIVE NOW: Red Bull Stratos | Technical & Social News | Scoop.it

Posted by Alexandros Maragos on October 9, 2012

 

(...) "All camera systems being used for the Red Bull Stratos mission have been personally designed and developed by the mission's director of high-altitude photography, Jay Nemeth of FlightLine Films. One of only a handful of "zero-G" qualified cameramen, Jay Nemeth has logged zero-gravity flights for various projects, including a shoot with Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin. In addition to being comfortable in zero-G and high-G environments, he is familiar with the specific camera systems that work well in these conditions.

FlightLine Films offers long-range optical tracking, zero-gravity qualified crews and HD cameras for use in the cold vacuum of space, as well as housings that allow traditional motion picture cameras to operate in that hostile environment. Camera and communications systems are essential to establish visual contact with Felix Baumgartner, to document the mission's progress in real time and for future review, and to broadcast the images to a global audience.

 

IN-FLIGHT CAMERAS

• Nine high-def cameras
• Three 4K digital cinematography cameras (RED)
• Three digital still cameras (Canon 5D Mark II)
• Pressurized electronics "keg" containing more than 125 electronic components and approximately two miles of wiring"
