We finally received the Red Scarlet X on March 14th, 2012! It was an amazing treat and worth the wait.
However, I had spent about 50 + hours figuring out how to make this workflow seamless for me and my editors (new company and we are learning).
So I wanted to test how 2k, 3k, 4k and different frame rates will work in post and the look.
I wrote a documentation which I will post on kvibe.com of the Red Cine X and Avid Workflow. I will also post a link of what I used to reference this documentation since you can't find it anywhere on the web.
I shot everything in iso 800. Then I wanted to test the iso 320 to see what everyone was talking about "clipping" the highlights. I just don't understand how one can clip the highlights when you actually see on the monitor that you aren't clipping.....
Well it was extremely sunny and brightly beaming on my subjects. I didn't have any ND filters so I shot with my Zeiss 85mm at F16. I brought the iso down to 320 and at times, I increased my shutter speed over the 180/shutter rule.
The 48fps looks really good for slow motion and I also shot 2k 60fps in slow motion.
I didn't have an EVF(left it home by accident) so it was very difficult to see through the monitor to even stay in focus or get close to the best focus point.
The latitude is amazing on this camera. Let me know your thoughts and you can also comment on my more in depth detail of this test shoot. All the problems I faced and what I learned about the avid and red cine x workflow
