The Sony F65 was the primary camera on Oblivion. I suspect the Red was used where the large F65 was too cumbersome. I suppose I wouldn't be surprised if its DI was 4K ... because its PQ is...

Hey Rich, which JVC do you have? I've forgotten.


I'm kind of the same about Darbee. I had trouble with stand alone Darbee handshake, so the Lumagen solved that. I am surprised the Lumagen...
