I just got back. I had a great time. I went to the JVC booth first. Like last year, when I brought my new JVC GS-TD1 3D camcorder to NAB, they were really appreciative that I had bought their camera. This time I even got to talk to their President, Mr Mueller and several other members of their senior staff. They weren't sure how the camera would be used and were very interested in hearing from early adopters. I got the impression I'm the first one they met.
They showed me how Final Cut stitches together the four parts and even converted a few of my shorter clips. They are loading into my PC now in the ProRes format (interframe compression). Their Mac found the clips very quickly via a USB connection to my camera and could scrub through the 4K clips very fast.

I've actually been concentrating on getting a 3D Bluray authoring solution (I settled on Power Director 10) and haven't had time to explore 4K options yet. It's going to take a while before I can distribute 4K video anyway. I'm content to just acquire the recordings for now.

I had suspected that as well, but really scrutinized the samples and they really are sharp at the pixel level. My own recordings bear that out. I got to see Q10 samples on a dedicated 4K monitor and compare them to Red's 4K demo loop. The Q10 is just as sharp.
saying that Red Epic owners wasted their money. There are more parameters to video than just sharpness of course. I wish the Q10 had better light sensitivity, for example, but it is
sharp. I'll never think of 'Full' HD the same way again.
I'm quite pleased with my purchase. I'm looking forward to capturing spectacular scenes in Hawaii this summer.
