Ever since the day that the guys from RED showed me the RED for the first time, I thought that the modular camera body concept was brilliant. We still see bits and pieces of that across the camera industry, but it is yet to become really prevalent. Here’s a concept camera that was posted on [...]

Vincent Laforet sent us this… a pretty cool MōVI shoot with the RED Epic Infra red and of course he’s still very enamored with the MōVI and asked us to share this short with behind the scenes footage. What are your thoughts on the MōVI? We have a special section in our forums for MōVI [...]

Pure phenomenal nature from the American South West — in 4k glory no less! If you watch – make sure to click thru to youtube where you can see it in 4k (assuming you have the bandwidth). Shot on Red Epic-m, Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EOS 5D Mark II cameras. Note to [...]

I posted this the other day on the planet5D HDSLRScoopNews page – but I really wanted everyone to have a chance to hear it… you know if you’ve been reading this blog, that I really admire Shane and what he’s willing to share with everyone – he doesn’t hold anything back. Listen to Shane tell [...]

Proxy Module – RED This is important, because RED lost a lot of business to Alexa and other manufacturers because it did not incorporate Prores or DN x HD (Avid) codecs into it’s camera. Anyone shooting straight to broadcast or with a need for quick turnaround on dailies had to transcode RAW files first. Recently, [...]

Note: planetMitch here – this is an analysis of the news from Clayton, our Chief Moderator on the planet5D forums – he’s helping me cover some of the NAB news today since there’s so much going on. This is hugely important for RED to stay in the battle for top camera sales. Not only must [...]

Zacuto has again pulled out all the stops to outdo themselves from the last 2 Camera Shootouts (2010, 2011) – the first episode of the Revenge of The Great Camera Shootout 2012 is now available! I was disappointed that there were technical problems with the preview scheduled for NAB – so I didn’t get to [...]

Timur Civan has written a review: Red Scarlet: The Gateway Drug. If you don’t remember Timur, he’s the guy who caused a huge stir when he put a 102 year old lens on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II (two posts: stills post and video from the same lens). So he knows his way around [...]

You guys all know we love the folks at stillMotion and you know they love HDSLR shooting – so what the heck is up with them using a RED Epic on a wedding shoot? And, just how’d that work out for them as compared to their friends the HDSLRs? Find out a bit in their [...]

It doesn’t come as any surprise these days that HDSLRs are working side by side with other types of cameras and we’ve got another really awesome film to show you from Teton Gravity Research which was shot with a majority of HDSLRs but also includes Red and Phantom. Brian Wulf (who has a home near [...]

Eric Kessler and his Kessler University gathered a bunch of folks together a few weeks ago to play with some timelapse gear and to make some movies… Tom Guilmette posted a little behind the scenes. Granted they’re using Red and other cameras, but this is darn interesting stuff. Don’t forget about the Chronos Film Festival [...]

What a great conversation we had last night with Vincent Laforet! Many say he’s the instigator of the HDSLR revolution since he was the first to post a movie shot with the now famous Canon EOS 5D Mark II. We cover lots of subjects including a little gear, a little moviemaking, a little on commercials, [...]
