One thing I'm curious about, having used the Red only once and having two more jobs booked with it coming up... Is the mount on the body affected by temperature? I pulled for a feature that had a Sony EX1 mounted to a MovieTube with Superspeeds in February and during our exteriors (in -20 degree weather), the MovieTube shrunk just enough to put our shots out of focus. It was something we only noticed during playback much later on. To compensate, we had to adjust the focus on the EX1 to approximately 5' instead of Infinity. This was an extremely dramatic shift in back focus and troubled me constantly. I wonder if the Red could exhibit a similar problem, and if so, is this the cause of your shots being soft?
Curious to hear from anyone who has shot with the Red extensively in extreme cold or hot environments, and their results.
