Jim Jannard, founder of RED Digital Cinema, was so gracious to allow me to video him demonstrating the 5K EPIC. Also he gave me the privilege of being one of the first to record footage on the EPIC.

This is the first and only video (with permission by RED) of a working EPIC, that actually records and is demonstrated by Jim Jannard, himself.



Also, lot of pictures up on my Facebook (facebook.com/josephhutson) from RED Day...here's a few...

Thanks, Joseph. The compact form factor looks appealing. Great to see how small it can be with a basic configuration and short zoom.

Maybe ..... But he's clever enough, he may pull an Alan Funt on you, and just keep you wondering. ;-)

Steady on Mr Sprung. Since this is a family forum, I must respectfully ask you to moderate your language. :lol:

Er what?
Oh sorry, I wasn't paying attention.
I was reading this story about how the Season final of "House" was shot with ~$2,000 Canon Digital Stills cameras in HD video mode. Amazing what they can do these days.... :P

I too am impressed by the tiny size, it makes me a little worried about heat dissipation tho but maybe with the newer technology the camera runs cooler anyway.

I guess we will find out but I imagine the RED people will have considered heat issues a lot because of past concerns.

Definitely looking interesting.

love

Looks like there are going to be a number of options for 35mm sensor cameras over the next year. Although, the Aaton was very much a preview for being available in a years time.

Also, a possible 35mm sensor camera from Sony and 4/3 camera from Panasonic for the prosumer market.

US $6000 for a digital cinema camera with a large sensor size is a milestone indeed.

Release date: December 2010

Oh, I am sorry. I forgot a few doesn't even consider a prosumer camera to be called a cinema camera. Or... a digital camcorder, my apologies. ;)

I wonder when PL mounts and 12V DC input start to become standard available options.
You'll also need special head adaptors that clamp onto the lens instead of the camera!
(I know they aready have those for existing stills lenses, but they'll need something for existing cine glass).

Wonder what will Star Wars Episode 7 be shot on; an iPhone App perhaps? :rolleyes:

These are indeed exciting times, for cinematographers and hecklers alike! :D

Why is the video so jerky and disjointed?
In case it was a link problem, I fished the downloaded file out of my Temporary Internet Files folder so I could play it offline with QuickTime and other players. Same result.

I wonder when somebody will decide that PL mount lenses no longer need to be designed with clearance for mirror shutters. There has already been a feature film released that was shot entirely on cell phones. It was a story about prostitution in South Africa.

There seems to be two markets developing in the 35mm sensor world, one uses the PL mount for cine glass and the other various stills mounts. Purely on a lower cost basis (resulting in more camera being manufactured I would assume), would be for the latter. It's something that has been happening with the RED One to some extent, although I haven't seen a breakdown percentage or numbers wise PL mount vs stills mount for the RED One.

How interchangeable these mounts need to be would be another matter. I expect Sony and Panasonic are aiming these cameras that the people who are currently shooting video on DSLRS or have 35mm adapters fitted to their HDV cameras and most of these people seem to use stills glass.

I believe the first feature shot on a mobile phone was made a few years ago (EDIT: I've just noticed John has mentioned it).

PL mounts for DSLR cameras:

I believe Illya Friedman was seen with a PL mount at the Panasonic stand.

Isn't that what lenses like the Optimo rouge lenses are all about ?
