RED KOMODO 6K | First Footage - WOW

You basically get what you pay for here with these cameras. The special thing about the Komodo, however, is the ability to match the color of much more expensive RED cameras:

What ultimately segments Komodo from Dragon and Gemini is the lack of HFR, more REDCODE compression options, and a pro interface or connections. Otherwise, RED is delivering some serious image quality that threatens its own high-end cameras.

Yeah this looks great, at one point I will get one of these.

I understand what rolling shutter is. Let me explain even more clearly.  If I pick up a camera and shake it while recording, I get motion in the footage because the camera is pointing in a differ

Got my hands on Red Komodo to test for a few days. I'm impressed. A few more images can be seen here: https://imgur.com/a/HAWFShe  

I’m going to buy a Komodo. So I can come on here and tell the amateur hybrid camera video makers all about my thick colour, GS (yes! yes! YES!) and other juicy comments designed to reinforce my s

I’m impressed with the color matching.  If I owned a higher end Red and needed another camera Komodo seems like a good value as a “b” camera to the higher end Red cameras.  Even at the lower price point of Komodo you are getting the Red image processing pipeline and great one at that.  I think it is fair to say that Komodo will be many people “a” camera and is a good choice as it can look great and has many year of high in camera technology and experience built into its design.  It seems priced right for what you are getting...

gone already, almost bought it but with current economic situation better to buy shares lol.

reply to myself, 40% increase on zoom stock today, instead of spending $7000 on komodo pre-order but on zoom stock yesterday, you gained around $2800 in a day

If we're going to cherry-pick the best examples, then you're all wasting your time not going to the casino....

Just remember...  the first hit is free 🙂 

Yeah I just put in the some of the money I earned into it, not borrowing from bank to play with it, so worst case scenario is it might turn to pile of paper but at least my other asset are still fine. Some other people can go super crazy about it though.

Thats very interesting, how do you know where to invest into. Kinda new into stocks. But looking for some good investments, was thinking about an appartment and renting it out. But thats only a 2 - 3% yearly profit. So stock can be more interesting I think. Any tips? (youtubers/blogs/your own thoughts)

Mostly follow the local fb group i am in, there are some good advice there as people tend to share their findings and research (and some bad ones too though, so choose wisely).  I do it as long term investment instead of playing for short term, so minor dips dont worry me much. Since bank interest is so low so and gonna be that way for a few years there is no point put money in the bank unless u buying a house or something.

I didn't watch youtube as they are like any other youtuber...

To second what @ntblowz said, most people I know that are successful in investing are in it for the long term.  There's a saying that if you're going to own stock for a decade or more, any time is the right time to buy.

There is a pretty widely held belief that there is a strong 10-year cycle that the market follows, and so the idea is to plot a 10-year moving average for the whole market (eg, look at the indexes) and whenever the current market position is below that trend-line then that's the right time to buy.

I've developed a few thoughts on this over the years.

My grand unified theory of cameras is that highly skilled people can make almost any camera look glorious, unskilled people can't make any camera look good, and that for the rest of us in-between it's about how easy or hard it is to work with the equipment that matters.

Watching one video can tell us a lot of things.  It could show us the potential that the equipment has.  It could show us what is possible in a difficult situation (for example, low light, high DR, etc).  It could also give us a clue about how hard it is to work with if we know the skill level of those involved in making that specific video.

However, one data point is one data point, and for a more general view of a camera we have to watch many videos, and even then there is a limit to what we can tell without actually using it ourselves.  Reviews attempt to bridge this gap, but they are subjective and biased (consciously or unconsciously).

I suspect it's the case that amateurs draw conclusions based on one video because they don't know any better, skilled people know not to draw conclusions from one video because it's folly, and geniuses draw conclusions from one video because they can.

I agree that talented people can produce excellent videos with any camera. But that is irrelevant to evaluating a camera's ability. 

And, sure one video is a data point. But not all "data points" are of equal value, as you then go on to suggest. A video shot in a setting with limited dynamic range, where the author has decided to discolor skin tones, where most of the frames are out of focus (very little detail to ingest), is not going to be a very valuable data point for evaluating a camera.

What are the key issues for image quality? 1. dynamic range - so we need a setting with a big dynamic range. 2. color science - so we need to see the natural colors it is capable of reproducing, not some person's imaginative discoloration of skin tones. 3. Resolution - so we need detailed scenes, not faces and bokeh. 4. rolling shutter - so we need horizontally moving subjects.  5. low-light performance - so we need - lowlight! The posted video (cute children shot with a very peculiar lens) that people actually said convinced them to get a Komodo failed in providing information on any of these. It may win a prize somewhere, and the dp may win an award, but it is a near useless as a data point for evaluating a camera. 

There are threads for showing off one's artistic vision in video,  a thread about a camera is not the place for that. Wow, really? Again, the Komodo may be a great addition to the cinematic tool kit at a reasonable price,, but I do not see anything here that demonstrates it is better than other offerings (actually, global shutter seems to me the biggest deal, so let's see that in action).
