Re: Why I sold my Red and "downgraded" to a C100

well, you need to understand what was the thing for the guy to get a Scarlet in the first place, and it wasn't even better image he was after :))
"By 2012, I began to feel the need to separate myself from fellow DSLR shooters. " - here you go, poor guy thought he'll get the Red and become Peter Jackson, yeah right;
and another thing :"Suddenly a $16,000 investment grew much larger." - here you go again, memory, power, storage, accessories - i know, not cheap, but
"I also found myself disappointed with the color I got from the camera." - what? 12 bit raw is not good enough for you? well this is just wow;
i agree that the best name for Red Scarlet is a 'getaway drug to epic', and i was looking at C100 when i was shooting with it, but not since Red announced Scarlet to Epic upgrade.
waiting for dragon now.
I love this place!

It also needs to be beaten in with a stick that any camera will fall short with an inexperienced operator.

Give me a seasoned, award winning DP with a $1000 camera of his/her choice over any up and comer DP with any camera they desire but haven't worked with extensively, be it an alexa, epic, phantom, etc....

It's not to say that an up and comer can't produce great results, the point being that experience usually trumps technology when it comes to dicey situations. and knowing the camera you use and it's abilities and weaknesses is far more important than something of a higher level that you aren't completely competent with
Well said-
