    [David Cherniack] “Finally, and I think we’ve done this one to death, I love Red images. I think they’ve really cut a new edge in camera development and I’m looking forward to using one of their cameras in a future shoot, whenever the existing form factor suits what I’ll be doing.”

    Agreed. I’m sure it will be an exceptional camera at an exceptional price, 120fps @ 3k or not.

    I see, you think the ergonomics are better suited. Fair point, I think it all depends on what kinds of lenses you use any any interchangeable camera and just how shallow of DOF you are willing to use.

    All of these camera are different in their ergonomics than traditional ENG, or even film cameras. I think it’s an adjustment no matter which one you use if you are used to electronic zoom lenses.

    Looks like the Red and the Canon cameras have means of wireless electronic control (iPad for Canon, Redmote for Red). I’m not sure if Sony offers anything like that, I haven’t investigated it.

    [Rafael Amador] “BTW, something I like from the Canon is that records on CompactFlash cards.”

    Yes. It can be seen as an advantage or disadvantage depending on how you look at it. It is certainly less expensive, which is an advantage to the wallet! 🙂

    Since several folks here have mentioned the F3, I’ll direct you to a new article in the COW library, about the first feature shot with the F3 in S-LOG mode, “Ghost of Goodnight Lane.”

    It’s a great article, written by long-time COW Jonny Revolt. It gets into support platforms, recording, IIF-ACES workflow, and lots of other cool stuff.

    Note that it’s a great story about the production itself, rather than a proper review, but feel free to ask any more specific questions about the F3 and related workflows in the comments section for the article, which you find here.
