  • I/O Flare 2K SDI Camera « Wide Open Camera
    HCX The camera has genlock which is important if you want to lock two up for 3D applications Genlock sync is only achievable via a tri level sync Black burst will not work Most devices these days use tri level so this is not much of an issue these days Also unique is that the camera has a on screen menu output as well as clean feed out The menu out HD SDI or 3G SDI connections shows not only menus but also format and histogram The clean feed out can go ideally to a Sound Devices Pix 240 or AJA Ki Pro etc which both keep the kit compact and feature rich The camera has a special connection that allows for a hand remote to be used which is for menu navigation Everything you can do with a CCU you can do in camera as it has a complete and robust set of on board painting tools and controls You can also user the camera at long distances via Lemo to USB and other options This allows for laptop or hand controller remote use up to 200 meters A great feature of the camera is that it can use the Birger Engineering EF mount I know what you are going to say but this is different I O has managed to make the Birger C Mount to EF mount adapter work with their technology via a special connector You can control Canon EF lenses via the camera s controller and menu This is huge It actually is frustrating to see a company like I O using the Birger successfully because it makes us realize that the mount is actually a great product when its focused and the engineering is complete Part of the reason for this is that the Birger mount was originally designed for C Mount for NASA and other government agencies I O has taken it a step further by providing built in protocols that communicate with the mount and Canon lenses And it does this flawlessly Other mount options are C Mount to PL Nikon K B4 mount Canon and C Mount seem to be the most popular The 2K flare we looked at features a 2 3 sensor which is 2048 x 1088 and can go up to 60fps in 1080p The camera does do higher frame rates but this involves using the I O DVR which they OEM for other companies as well and a post workflow that uses CoaXpress This mode is called CXP and allows for up to 283fps This feature isn t for everyone and looks intimidating at first but once you learn the process and workflow you can capture long periods of high speed action in a fairly portable system Mind you this does require post processes to extract and use the footage I don t think anyone would buy the I O as a high speed camera but for 3D applications and for car rigging etc the cameras provide

  • What I like about Red Epic…and what I don’t like about Red « Wide Open Camera
    when the camera came out and was only recently introduced into the Red Store Why are there any jacks for anything in front of the camera outside of potentially a hand grip trigger cable port Alexa has a 5 pin XLR on the front of the camera too which bugs me For a company that touts being professional and better I find it ironic they used mini jack connectors for this Putting an HDMI port on the camera also seemed consumer ish I know you have them on the F3 and C300 but Epic is supposed to be a superior digital cinema camera Why are these ports here I am glad the Pro IO finally came out because I never used single system sound with the Epic due to fear of audio issues The PRO IO has XLR audio input jacks which gives me more confidence in in camera audio recording Probably the biggest problem I have with Scarlet and Epic is the crappy utterly useless battery system Red came up for it and packaged it with These batteries last about 12 17 minutes at best Not at all practical for anyone but a hobbyist Anton Bauer Switronixs IDX etc batteries are the only way to go with this camera Do not waste your money on the Red batteries unless you only shoot for a few minutes per session The native on this ISO and dynamic range on the Red is not great in comparison to the current crop of cameras on the market Will all the bashing about OLP and Bayer I got in Red User I noticed that no one in forum addressed these issues and highlight handling They only addressed what I wasn t pointing out as an issue As for Red suing Wooden Camera and others I think its complete bullshit and a huge mistake Fact is that Wooden Camera and Viewfactor stepped up to make Epic a usable camera while Red screwed around with trying to make bad ass looking accessories rather than practical ones As far as having NATO rails as an infringement on the suit is ridiculous Red did not invent the NATO rail Picatinny rails have been around for decades WC and Viewfactor made certain accessories before Red made theirs available now Red wants to sue them for lost profits If anything Red should be thanking them for filing the void since they didn t have anything themselves to offer I highly doubt that WC or VF had access to Red s intellectual property WC and VF happened to make a better product when Red finally did release their own version but shooters chose WC and VF in the end Now Red has to shut them down to ruin it for us the user We just want a quality product and the fact is Red base plates rod accessories etc in the past have been shit Element Technica Wooden Camera and Viewfactor simply machine a better product Red should stick to making cameras and leave the accessories to the aftermarket companies who do it right Lastly what I dislike about Red as a company I am not sure what goes on at night at the Red compound but the few times I have logged onto Red User to read the Recon session I have been flabbergasted by what Jim and others post I am talking about attitudes Basically the way I read the posts is that if you are not shooting editing etc in 4K you are clueless and behind the game Its the same stuff he has been saying since the 3 2K Red One came out I read about lawsuits banning people refusing support or sales etc and I can only think of an odd dictatorship Yes I suppose you can run a company anyway you like but its a real turn off to see a company bad mouthing everyone Preaching that 4K is the standard today is simply untrue and not a world most of us live in Its not a world most Red owners live it Every gig I have shot on Red was for a 1080p deliverable That is a fact Most of the time we shot 4K it was because we could crop into the image or for VFX background plates that required it Yes 4K is coming to more cameras etc but that is going to require better computers more 4K monitoring solutions and more importantly a market price that is attainable by the majority A small company preaching how things really work or how they feel it should be doesn t make it so A recent poll by Crews Control showed that Sony XDCam EX made up for 47 of the camera formats currently being used for the month of June 2012 and that DVCPro HD made up for 23 These numbers are based on ENG news gathering local commercial production etc It did not include the feature film national commercials or broadcast network television shows Still it was a large portion of the market that represents the majority of media on television and the internet I look forward to 4K becoming the norm Red is definitely helping push it alone Laying off the attitude and throttling back the fan boy army would be a huge advantage to Red The way I have been treated and others makes me reconsider using Red cameras on my projects Voicing criticism on how to improve a product or mentioning why competition is good and coming should not be a personal issue Fear of loosing support due to a critique etc as an owner or renter of a Red Camera worries me These threats do not make you a better or grittier company Now I am preparing for a new bashing The Red Forum user base is made up of a few different types of people There are a lot of Red owners who go out shoot and have critiques of their own Many of them are real
