5d mark ii – digital camera raw compatibility update

Happy New Year!  Think the Canon 5D Mark II isn’t top of mind over at Apple?


Think again.  Topping the list of the new RAW compatibility update, the 5D Mark II is poised to start the new year off right… with a DSLR filmmaking revolution!  And check out this new camera shootout from Zacuto, first seen (by me at least) over at the DCFCPUG website.

And if your mind is made up and you’re ready to pony up the bills for a 5dmarkii, check out the other DSLR cinematography stuff you might want to include in that order.


And enjoy this here ye olde video:

Can’t think of a better person to put this RED and Canon 5dmarkii technological whirlwind into perspective than the infamous Bob Zelin . On today’s FCP-L, he posts:
…most people on this list have been made aware of the Canon EOS D5 Mk II camera which is going
right after the Red Scarlet market. And believe me – there will be others – LOTS OF THEM, and they will all
be great, and they will all be cheap.

What I do realize is that a DIFFERENT TYPE OF WORKFLOW is about to happen. It’s already started to happen with Panasonic P2, Sony XDCam EX, Sony XDCam HD, and of course RED. And now Canon. And there will be more.

What this means is that the idea of “joe shmo” popping in a tape in his HDV or Beta camera and hitting the record button, and then popping his tape into “VTR-XYZ”, and digitizing – those days are ending.

The people in denial with their stupid Sony Beta VTR’s are the same people that could not deal with the death of CRT monitors, and said that CRT’s would always be made for the professional clients. Just like 1″, just like 3/4″.

The business is changing faster than ever, and believe me, if you are supposed to be an “expert” like me – well, it scares the crap out of me because all of this is a BIG CHANGE in a very short period of time, and it is sure tough for me to learn all this new stuff. I really don’t want to learn Premier, or the XENA product line, but I didnt’ want to learn FCP, and I didn’t want to learn AVID. But I had to, to stay in business, and support myself, and my family.

There will be plenty of those that say “aah – this Red crap, this Adobe stuff -it will never happen”. These people will become unemployed – just like the film editors – just like the linear video editors. HD just started – are there any “low end” film cameramen anymore, that do low to mid budget shoots with an Arri 16SR (I know that all hi end is still 35mm – at least for now).

***UPDATE 2***

And in case you’re like me and wondering to yourself “What the hell does 28k even mean??!!” Stu Maschwitz over at ProLost put together this simple diagram to help us realize how small we really are:

RED Scarlet Pricing

Terence Curren posts to the FCP-L:

Imaging a 3K camera…
Okay, that’s 3K imaging…. oh yeah, and 3K is the price also!
That is with lens, but not a viewer or handles. My guess is it will be
closer to 5K as you would actually use it. Wonder what they are saying in Japan
right now…
They also mentioned native support for Red files in Color is on it’s way.

Scarlet will be my next camera. That is a revolutionary price point. My brain is numb.
