Here's perhaps a better example of what I tried to explain in the previous post. This footage is a test how steadily I manage the camera on my shoulder while was moving on a skido. The footages itself is rather useless.

To demonstrate the point I added a stabilizing filter tyring to make the clip as steady as possible. For this reason allowed the software to zoom in as much as possible. The stabilized part is pretty smooth, and now, my point is, the original image is 4K. That yields a lot of headspace. The stabillized version of this shaky shot is still I guess around 3K resolution, so there's still plenty of space to downrez to HD 1920 x 1080.

The sample footage was processed on 2K and downconverted to 1K but should give an idea that the extra resolution makes quite a difference if shots need to be stabilized. The first 12 seconds is the original footage, the next 12 seconds the stablized version. The stabilizer creates some funny artefacts, but never mind. Here's the link to the sample

Hi Lauri

Wow that image is simply stunning !

I just thought I'd post a link to a UK doc ' The Wild Places Of Essex' that was shot on RED. It might be of interest and is a personal fave :-)

Hi Mat,

This is tremendous film-making. Beautifully put together and very engaging.

Any idea which lenses they used for the long shots?

Last comment on RED One in wildlife shooting

Everything comes to end at some point, and this will be my last comment on Red One camera in this thread.

When got the camera I started to shoot a wildlife document of Kuusamo highland reagion located in northern Finland and the east side of it is on the territory of Russia next to the Finnish border.

ARTE tv will show the

French version:
Une annee sous la lumiere arctique

and the

German version:
Unter Nordfinnischem Firmament

in Europe September 27th in the evening and a re-run October 4th. BBC Worldwide will show the document elsewhere except in Scandinavian countries.

The Finnish version be shown by YLE in Finland at some point near Christmas and the same might be shown also in Sweden and Norway in the future.

Summing up, I've been very very pleased with the Red One camera, and found it very reliable out there in warm, cold, dry and wet. I can sincerely say, have enjoyed this camera more than any other one I've ever owned. Everything suggests the new models Epic and yet unreleased Scarlet are even better for wildlife shooting, but that will be another story. This fall should be exciting in this respect.

Mat, I enjoyed the link you posted, thanks for sharing it! Also wish to thank everybody else who've posted to this thread and shared their thoughts.
