the rc #100: C300 with Dir. Laforet & RED ScarletX

This is our 100th RC and we wish to thank our insanely great fxg team (you guys are rockstars!) for making us look and sound good each week.

And thank you, our listeners, for making this such a successful podcast. We are humbled by the response and growth of the show, it is stunning how much support we have gotten from you the community. So thanks everyone - it is so much fun doing this show and while it is quite a lot of work, this is one of the finest communities and supportive groups...so sincerely: thank you for listening.

Canon:

It wasn't the 5D mk III but it was a heck of a launch and a commitment to the film industry from one of the world's best camera companies.

This week we explore the Canon C300 and speak first hand to Vincent Laforet about his stand out film  Möbius  and his experiences shooting with the C300. This first hand discussion of the camera, its strength and weaknesses - is a killer Red Room interview by Jason Wingrove.

Red:

Last week we asked you the community and our Peeps on Twitter - what would be important to you in Scarlet?  RED themselves had indicated it was going to be a significantly impressive camera but we wanted to know how you rated the features.
In order (these things were mentioned as being central to a winning Scarlet camera):

Under $10,000 – this was easily the most raised point
A large sensor perhaps S35 but not 2/3″
Closely followed by “having a Canon mount” for Canon (in addition to PL) lenses
Then there was a gap to the following set of requests, all mentioned about the same amount of frequency:
4K or at least 4K resolution
Shipping now or certainly of delivery
RAW or .r3d format

Red Answered with : Scarlet X
