  1. i would recommend employing a DoP who knows the camera he wants - and in the particular case a reshoot on 35mm mechanical instead of digital. without joking - i suppose you are having noise in the blue channel?
  2. So, am i now advertising red cameras and lenses, the si:2k which is distributed by ps technik (who also offer fine lenses and the cool IMS mount), or the lenses we have been betatesting? To make things clear: we are not a manufacturer, not a reseller for any of the products mentioned above.
  3. Knowing, a fullfeature shot on red, is #1 in the USA. Other news: The Academy Award for best cinematography was awarded to a feature shot mostly on the (fully digital) SI:2K. Before we forget: The new german Prime lenses price has been disclosed. Sub 10.000. €.€€€ per set. The optical quality of the lenses is excellent - possibly because they have an 2008 design.
  4. As many people know, we consider these internet forums a waste of time. however, faster they are. we will soon offer a set of prime lenses. the quality is german-style, the price is matched to reds offers. please be aware that we cannot receive more than 5 mail on this bulletin board. if you want to keep posted, therefore, please post on this thread. jan von krogh
  5. Canon, Kodak, Sony, Fraunhofer etc. might disagree. However everyone is entitled to an opinion which doesnt need to be based on facts.
  6. i usually decide what lens to use on the format - 35mm and S35 lenses favor sensorbased and mechanical/digital cameras. What has all of this to do with HD, 2K scan 4 cmos etc? The Acaemy award for "Best Cinematography" this year was given to a mainly digital S16 2K production btw.
  7. mechanical cameraswill be *ultra*cheap within 12-24 months, as nobody wil buy new ones anymore. dont pay solid money for them, just check what mechanical hasseblads or nikons get on ebay today.
  8. why arent they listed in the "35 mm" section of this forum?
  9. i dont think that the marketleader needs backup from us anymore. Keith, if your skills as dop and as doctor are equal, that would explain quite a bit. Keith, i dont want to be to harsh on you, but in 3-4 years most cameras will be better than anythinh you ever used so far. Lets be rather pessimistic and say 6.
  10. correct. the copies were shown in the cinemas in bavaria. the television copies were less.
  11. The last 6 months were quite busy and i dont like to chat with bored single guys all night, yeah. wasting time on the internet - and especially the forums - isnt recommendable when you dish out several 100s of printed film copies and DCI masters a month. the "gruene" spot mentioned above btw, alone had >400 4K 35mm arrilaser copies. probably more than several of the crybabies here ever had (and will have ) so far as copies total. however. besides being pretty busy, i also think that any discussion in this subforum is pointless until 4 people (you and 3 others) buy yourself some digital cheapo moviecams you can afford alone. or a new generation of mods would take over. or change the ownership of the forum. i suppose within the next 24/48 monts you and most the others here will shoot digital. and i suppose that "4k/12bit/raw" never wassufficient to tell your story would be *the* common excuse by then. And i would agree.
  12. we offer - if the clients are cool - our 6 well equipped reds ones for 999€ each a week. thats doesnt include the astro & tv-logic monitors, the cooke & angenieux lenses, the sachtler & oconnor tripod heads etc. we are pretty much booked out. for cheapos, we still have our vintage arri IIB 35mm cams and the canon 5D MK2s.
  13. This might be one of the reasons why so many folks, which are paid way better than you, are are using red.
  14. i own HDCAM and RED cameras and both have advantages. i cannot agree with you after >1000 hours shot on each system. Both have advantages. For full-features and cinema work the red would be preffereed often here. if you are not able to shoot and expose correctly for the red, you should book a training or leave the DoP/cameramanposition for someone more qualified.
