Quick (stupid) questions for a RED baby

Max Field

Recommended Posts

I'm going insane because Google isn't giving me the answers I need, sorry to drag it on here.


What is the Battery life from a RED Brick when hooked up to a RED One MX?


Is a RED hard drive something other than a standard 2.5" solid state in a case?


And lastly, Does the RED One MX, with most updated firmware, really take 90 seconds to boot up?


Thank you, to everyone.

Yes, the original Red drives were RAID0 hard drives connected to the camera with a Lemo cable, so it was a completely proprietary recording system. If you can get a Red MX with a SSD side module instead, then you can use the more common SSD Redmags.


Can't remember what the battery life of a single Red Brick was with the MX, but it wasn't great. It was short enough that I was always calculating when I could shut the camera down between setups to save juice. 90 second boot up sounds about right, but it's been a long time since I've used that camera. In the early days of the Red One it was more like 2 minutes.
