Last week I introduced a fantastic new tool called REDCamAssist from Phil Holland on his site PHFX. Well if you found it useful, you’ll love LensData too.
Again the PHFX LensData tool is for RED camera users, and it matches up a range of lens types with either RED Dragon or Mysterium-X sensors to produce a useful data sheet of lens data and sensor coverage. If you find yourself wondering what is the maximum resolution a 20mm Ultra Prime will cover on your RED Dragon, this tool will immediately tell you it will cover up to 5.5K WS on the 6K Dragon sensor.
The currently listed lenses for PHFX LensData are below:
Arri/Zeiss Master Primes
Arri/Zeiss Ultra Primes
Leica Summilux-C Primes
Leice Summicron-C Primes
Zeiss Compact Primes
Zeiss Compact Zooms

RED Camera top man Jim Jannard recently posted this on the Red User Forum. It sounds like there are some great things coming from Red at NAB 2011. Here is the quote from the post on the Red User Forum.

“Obsolescence Obsolete… we said it. We believe it. We are delivering it.
The RED ONE was advertised as such. But we realized that it could not live up to the ongoing advancements we had envisioned, even though we offered the MX sensor upgrade which is well beyond what any company had ever done for their customers.
So we developed EPIC. And we gave our RED ONE customers a way to upgrade to EPIC without any pain.
Stage 2 and Stage 3 are our solutions to Obsolescence Obsolete. Choose one if you are a RED ONE owner. They are your choices. Don’t think past these choices… anything beyond these are not fair to us.
NAB is approaching. We will answer all your questions at NAB. We will show you more than you could every imagine. We will be a great supplier. We only ask you to be a great customers. Fair deal?”
