So - what does the #Gemini look like at high ISO in the wild?
i.e. in "real world" use - vs a studio test?

That's likely what every RED Digital Cinema user, filmmaker and DP is asking right now, especially a few days before #NAB2018

I too was curious ... so much so that I took the fresh off the assembly line body with me to Sedona, AZ and the Grand Canyon during spring break with the kids... and natch: I put everyone to work. (Thanks to Bruce Dorn for being such a wonderful champ, guide, model!)

Filmmakers, TV shooters, doc, and pretty much everyone will be pleased with the excellent low light performance of this body as well as the smaller 5K size. I noticed I was filling up those SSDs much more slowly than in 8K... I was able to fill 5 days of footage on two of the new tiny G-Technology Europe 2TB SSDs and filled them each only 60%. That's cool!

The results are incredible to me. I think the body easily sees 1.5 to 2.5 stops more into the shadows than any RED I've used to date and any 4K or above camera that I've used to date as well.

The lenses used played a big part of this as well - as you're pushing the limits of optics here too. I used the ZEISS Camera Lenses Otus 55mm 1.4 , the Milvus 25mm 1.4, and the Sigma Corporation of America 14mm 1.8 for the most part. Almost always WIDE open. Exposure, shutter angle, FPS, compression and all details are overplayed on each clip.
