Screen Grabs

I'm posting a few stills I pulled from the initial review of footage. They are moderately compressed JPEGs so don't judge the HD/SDI quality based on them, but it'll give a good idea of lighting and color.

I'll have some footage to post next week.

reason for only 2GB DRAM

As a software engineer.. I get this.. I'm guessing their card has a large buffer, and up until this year almost everyone wrote their code with the capability of 32 bit address range. If you figure out 32^2, you figure out the maximum addressing possible within that range. That happens to be 4 GB, so their card has a big chunk of memory on it that is mapped into the range (probably 1GB), so anything over 2GB on the MAC couldn't be done (next increment over 2GB is 4GB..woops.. its out of the address range).

So they are probably rewriting their drivers to be 64 bit capable (just like everyone else in the industry).. then you have 64^2 address capability (I have no idea what this is, but its big).

Hi Dave, since you have been using this setup for over a month now could I trouble you for your thoughts on quality and whether the exercise was worth it.

Hi Glenn,

Yes, it is most definitely worth it. The image quality is beautiful and our clients are quite impressed with the setup when they see it in action.

It also gives us another price point when quoting a job and allows us the potential to rent it out.

So how much more did you spend on this unit than the camera?
We have basically the same setup except we are using external sata raids instead of fiber channel.
It just irks me how much more support systems cost than the actual cameras.

Brian,

Support from Zotz is free if you buy from them. On the gear, I'd have to look at the records to see the total price but minus the camera, it was around 15K.

Sorry, I meant supporting systems for the camera, ie. computer, raid, matte box, controls, batteries, etc.

Just giving this a bump to see if there is any new information or footage that can be shared, as I'm interested in this type of setup as well. :)
