Back in March 2016, I thought it’s time! I have used DSLRs for many years and essentially learned my craft and skills on a ‘not-so-sexy’ camera like a Canon 5D MKII & 60D (which are both awesome cameras btw) . But there is a time we must progress, move upwards and outwards, and not look back, right? Well, one must also remain competitive, especially in LA!
So we placed a deposit in March and then three months later in late June – BOOM! We got our little RED Raven. She’s a beauty. Some people by the way, are still waiting, have been waiting for this camera for over a year, which majorly sucks. We went through Samys Camera and got it faster, lucky indeed!
Since upgrading, we haven’t looked back. Big investment yes ($15K+), but 100% worth it. The .R3D codec, beautiful 4.5K image, nice slow motion, being able to shoot RAW, modular system, the awesome RED team are just many reasons why I chose to move to RED. It just opens up so much potential with your filmmaking and allows you not to be a better DP or Director, but gives you more options, scope, dynamic range – just more! The old saying – the tool won’t make you a better at what you do, but it does help you elevate and make some insane looking content you’ll be pleased with for years to come.
We always use the best gear in our projects so our clients get the best quality and service they can get. Now we want the 8K Epic-W – our thirst for new tech never stops!
