Getting to grips with the camera. Currently in southern California hanging with Steve (Douglas) and having a blast. Will be looking to post more feedback soon.

Hey Jules,
The housing is being made as we speak, custom build. Will share more info when done.

Wagsy, talk about hitting the nail on the head. Here's a still from a test yesterday. Nothing done to this except shrunk down from its native 4k resolution:

First time I've used the lens on this so maybe a bit soft. Only using an LCD to focus as my Electronic View Finder is on back order. I should have that in about a month.

Cheers,
Mark.

They are making the Scarlet, due to be released this fall. It is a 3k cam, fixed lens and will sell for about 4500.00....the Red One was considerably easier to use than I had anticipated. Either that or Mark is just a great teacher. Unfortunately, after spending the last week here, he had to leave early this morning for a meet back East in D.C.

Uh oh. Credit Card is burning right now.

Good thing I let my wife use my video rig last trip and she started getting hooked on that. "Honey, listen, I do not really want this new video camera, it is just that you are enjoying my current video camera that I am getting these new things for you. Yes I will be using them, but really, emotionally, it is for you. And so is this dSLR rig."
