used a Keslow Camera provided lens, super wide gear, O'Connor follow focus, and a Preston remote focus system. Next need to figure our how to interface with a matte box with filters. I will probably use my 4.125" irrigation tube system rather then a duveteen shroud
10.19.2015 - This practical camera test was designed to reveal how RED Weapon Dragon performs under various common lighting conditions, compare the color response of the different OLPFs, explore custom LUTs, numerically color matching to the Color Charts, examining ISO Texture, and to see if there any differences between native REDCODE RAW capture and internal ProRes recording.
These tests were carried out at UWE, The University of the West of England in Bristol on the 10th & 11th October 2015, supervised by Geoff Boyle and Technical Editor Dave Neal.
We had a lot less help than for the january tests, but ProKit and VMI managed to get us equipment that others had promised and then let us down.
Many thanks to our student crew, Sergejs and Jadon also Dr Sarah Sparke of UWE who coordinated everything as usual.
Cameras were shot under Daylight, thanks to ProKit for the BBS Area 48 and Pipeline lights.
This is not meant as a "shoot out" or a "camera comparison" it's simply a fact finding mission, we exposed cameras as requested by the manufacturers. Light levels in the daylight setting were adjusted to optimise exposure for 800 ISO.
Exposed as were all the cameras at ISO 800 the neutral or "correct" exposure was at minus one stop indicating that the camera is ISO 1600.
