I'm in the market for a good HD camera and was wondering what I would need to buy besides the red one body in order to use it for any basic filmmaking needs such as lenses and accessories. What price range would I be looking at with all these things included?

Around 30K for a package I'd say.

You'll need

Body (17500)
Batteries (1450 ish)
Charger
Media Module (CF Card) (500)
A good number of CF Cards (500 or so EACH)
Lens Set Or good Zoom (Varies)
Tripod
Monitor or EVF or both


check red.com for the most current prices.


you'll also need some kind of mobile solution to offload the footage, such as a laptop and good hard drives, though your best bet would be a dedicated desktop box with RAID array on a cart to trolly 'round with.

Or maybe wait a while longer and get it on the used market. . .


I'm sure those prices'll come down.

This was a fluid question when the RED ONE was new, but now that so many accessories are being sold on Ebay, it's an even tougher situation.

I'd suggest getting a handle on all the accessories, and how you want to build out the camera, then start hitting the Ebays, blogs and yes even (Don't hit me) Reduser since they are going to move a lot of stuff on there as well. I think there's even a classified section.

I hope this helps!

I never realized they were so expensive, still you pay for quality I suppose.
