I’ll be shooting a short film relatively soon and I’ve decided on a super35 sensor camera.
What I’m still pondering is choosing the F3 over the Red One.
Using a week rental as a guideline and not checking “do me a favor” pricing, I come out to the following:
F3 with updated firmware: $2085
Red One (MX): $2375
Now to squeeze the full color and bitrate out of either F3 setup, I’d need a $200/week Ki Pro Mini to round out the kit, bridging the gap to $100 more for the week for a Red One kit.
While the barebones F3 package is more attractive with a $500 price gap… Id rather just shoot my 5DmkII if I was going to get stuck with 4:2:0.
Thoughts? I’m very familiar with the Red One and I know I can upres the F3 to 2K for projection because it’s a sharp camera as well.
We’re shooting some lit daytime interiors, with minimal day and night exteriors, no effects. It’s not a very demanding situation.
