The RED RAVEN Really Impresses With This New Short Film

by Bret HoyLeave a Comment

The RED RAVEN certainly ruffled some feathers when it was announced late in 2015. For many people it sounded far too good to be true and now when we’re finally looking at the footage, it almost looks too good to be true. The color and incredibly detailed shadows certainly has me impressed.

But we also have to temper our expectations.

Whenever we see promotional material like this, it’s easy to jump up and get excited about the capabilities of the camera, but you can assume it’s being shot with the most expensive lenses on the market…

But wait, this is shot with the new Zeiss Milvus lenses? Now that really impresses me! The Milvus lenses used in this video, might be on the higher end of affordable but they’re certainly within the reach of a person who buys the RED Raven.

Watch this short, “Carrion” that’s being shared on www.RED.com and look for the incredibly rich color and dynamic range presented. I’m not a RED Shooter yet I’m very impressed. Also, make sure to click the resolution up to 4k so you can get the full experience. It’s worth the extra buffer time.
