Filming with RED ONE at 50 degrees
Posted 13 June 2012 - 03:13 AM
I'm having a 10 day shoot at a gas plant next month and the temperature will reach 50 degrees. I have never worked in such weather conditions and I don't know if the RED one would handle such heat.
Any ideas on how to overcome this or past experiences of filming with the red in such extreme conditions?

Most extreme solution in that case I've heard of was to put dry ice in there (and regularly purge the excess pressure from sublimation). I heard it via the camera techs at the hire place Dom Jeager works at, but worked with it on a phantom underwater shoot recently, the housing was like a zip up bag so you could see the pressure build. It really could be as simple as that, ice bags between shots and so on.

2. Ice Bags will lower body's temperature between the shots or even during the shots (if you get warning that camera body is hot).
Do you plan to shoot long shots and also audio on set?
