Here is Jim’s response to the reaction to his previous comments about Canon HDSLR’s. He asked to publish his comments without edit. Here you go. I would also like to point out another camera called the Arri Alexa. The price point of this camera is much closer to the RED than any HDSLR.
“Heh heh… I’m surprised that so many people are reading posts from Reduser! :-) Wow.
Clarification #1. I think that Canon should be embarrassed about pretending that line-skipping is good enough when they have the capability to do much more. I’m sure they will in the near future. Until then, they are delivering much less than they are capable of… which is one of the reasons I started this company. No one in this industry seems to move unless they are forced to.”
I got a tip at Cine Gear Expo that Mortal Kombat Rebirth was shot using the new RED Mysterium Sensor. If this is an example of what we can expect from the new sensor, then Red Users should rejoice. It looks great. The Mysterium Sensor records at 4520 X 2540. They are calling it “Ultra High Definition” or UHD. Here is the info from the Red site.
“ Record 2540 progressive at up to 30 fps REDCODE RAW. With 4520 X 2540 pixels, Mysterium™ puts pure digital Ultra-High Def in the palm of your hand.
RED ONE™ and REDCINE™ also support down-sampling to 1080p and 720p for in-field monitoring and compatibility with non-linear editors.
You get the same breathtaking field of view and selective focus found on film cameras. Mysterium™ boasts a greater than 66db Signal to Noise Ratio thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 12,065,000 pixels deliver resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.”
