    Two questions, battery life and auto focus. Also, wonder about screen brightness and resolution. 

    The screen is 1080p I think and the batteries are the Canon LP-E6 wich according to the page are to last 60 minutes

    I don't agree.

    Can only think of the E mount adapter where the Terra wins?

    I'm not sure thats a bigger win than having the MFT mount on the GH5s?

    Kinefinity's boosted EF mount is only 0.72 reduction whereas you can go deeper than that with a Metabones EF to MFT.


    Potencially it can be as flexible because of the flange focal distance of the Kinemount, but you either need Kinefinity or 3rd parties to build adapters.

    I fail to see how this is different from any technology advance in history. Why does it warrant an announcement or anything? Of course CPUs will get faster, sensor-readouts as well and 8K will get propagated down the price brackets in the following years ... as for PRO content creators - we have reached the era of perfecting 4K capture, just as 1080p was being perfected years after it first became available.

    When I made the comment I was thinking more about the price accessibility of Red than anything else, seeing what price point do they settle on and if this could potentially force other manufacturers to improve they offerings for that price point.I woudln't consider this partnership as revolutionary but more as evolutionary It's obious that over time technologhy will advance and become more accessible.

    When Red first arrived to the party they where certainly revolutionary in both image quality and price, the Dalsa Origin for example rented for 3000 USD per day. This was one of the frist steps towards a new wave of affordable narrative tools that exploted wtih the appearence of DSLR cinematography. Now they are compiting with Arry for the top notch Cinematograhpy crown. I doubt this will change for Red, but the perspective of a new entry level Red is interesting (not that I will be able to afford it anywhays though :expressionless:)


  4. I wonder if we will know something else from the Red-Foxconn partnership that was announced a while ago. I would love to see how the Foxconn chairman makes his promise true: “We will make cameras that will shoot professional-quality films in 8K resolution but at only a third of current prices and a third of current camera sizes”

    They released the a6300 profile today. Did they say how many they were going to do or is it a long shot since the nx1 came in 2nd over that camera in voting? 

    And the a6300 came third... I think they had this camera in the roadmap (Which makes sense since they knew the cam is going to sell a lot) and just used the survey to say: see, we listen!!

    Hopefully they will do the NX1 soon.

    It seems likely that whoever made the clip has a faulty camera.

    Even if it is a widespread problem, facts shoould be checked before it is made it into an article... As it stands, it is just 3rd hand, unverified info.

    Whoever did the test was pointing the camera at a car headlight beam at a really short distance at night on a street that isn't badly exposed with the street lights. Without knowing the ISO and the actual light output from the car is really difficult to judge if the issue appears because the camera is Faulty or as Cris Santucci mentions the camera was at a X thousand percent clip and then the issue appears. Note how the artifact appears in the shape of light only on the parts the light is way more strong.

    Hey Tomas would you mind uploading some Dngs?

    Here are some examples, there is a little bit of everithing so you can see dinamic range grain structure, etc.

    As cantsin said, the camera has been surpassed by newer cameras such as the BMPCC or the BMCC, but still I like it a lot. There is something with it's looks that makes it special. Still, the camera should only be used for experimentation as it isn't relaiable enough for any serious work.







  8. Having the Canon 50d I can give you my two cents:


    The image quality is amazing, I really love it. The colors are beautiful and the maximum recording size (1584 x 1058) escalates really beautifully to 1080p.

    The grain feels really organic and doesn't bother at all when it appears. Also, since the camera was introduced when hig megapixels weren't a priority, the 15 megapixles allow for some good low light (But is no A7S :grimace:)

    They are going really cheap now, so if you just want to experiment with magic lantern before actually spending a lot of money this could be your ideal camera.


    Overheating. The camera can be really a nightmare regarding this. And it will overheat not only when recording but also when the live view is active, so you need to be aware that if you don't intend to shoot at the moment you need to turn it of, that if you are under the direct sunlight you will record 2 or 3 minuts tops before it overheats and that if you intend to use it on a project you will be stopping a lot.

    Being an old sensor the dinamic range isn't astonishing.

    It's a MOS camera, so if you want sound you will need an external recorder and sinc sound in post (good old times)


    With all that said, every time I leave home with it I really enjoy using it and come with awesome images.

    They'd never have provide raw in the 50D, compare it vs H.264's heat

    I have tried both with similar results, in fact it overheats just by getting to live view mode, without any recording.

    The main factors that I've obseved that contibute to increase or decrease the time until it overheats are the the room temperature and being under the sun.

    This is why Canon didn't bother to put video into the Canon 50D even though it could have! :-o

    I have a 50D with magic lantern and , even though it produces beautyful images, it overheats like crazy. It's possible that they just used the camera as a test bed for future video featrures on other models or even considered adding the feature on the camera and in the end decided against because of the heat issues. Which is too bad, because I really love the 50D raw.

  11. This topic is awesome, is a live broadcast of a major technological (hacking) breaktrough!! As a recent NX1 purchaser (I have had the cammera for 3 months now) this is so exciting.

    If at some point it is decided to create some sort of financial support for the hacking effort, count with me!!
