I'm curious. How many of you switch off the camera in-between swapping lenses?

So the difference between Red and Canon is?
If canon charges you $20K for a Camera, you're actors won't have to wear special makeup(see post about the hobbit above) to account for sketchy color.
RED's folks say their servers got hacked so Jannard had to come out and demo, as the piece said. Conspiracy theory time!
That is such bullS___.
First of all if you are having a demo in front of an audience, even if you are showing them
a presentation hosted on your website you use a local copy right off a laptop or desktop computer.
Also if you are presenting a camera that is 2k or 4k you don't show internet footage.
The truth is that Red did not know what was coming from Canon so they had to improvise.
Red unfortunately has a reputation of unstable cameras that crash. On top of that it is not very
reassuring that the scarlet X is being built around reject processors from production of the Epic.
So far, we've heard a lot of feedback, mainly complaints, from people who are not currently using 1-series bodies, and don't seriously plan to get one. Sort of like people who say, "I was going to buy a Ferrari California, but now I'm not since they didn't put a V12 in it," and then just keep on driving their Toyota Camry, or at the most take out a 5-year loan on a newer model of the same car.
Nice elitist attitude.
So I guess Camry owners can't have opinions with regard to how the new Ferrari will effect their next Camry?
This IS an opinion message board, remember?
[ok, lets hear your real snappy comeback...)
I'm a little confused by the logic of announcing and waiting 5 months before releasing.
If they announce a new 1D on Tuesday, they will sell next to NO 1D stock between now and March, as people will wait.
The lower end Rebel etcs wouldn't have this problem as 1k for a body is a far more disposable amount than 5-8k.
People that will purchase a 1D will know the new one is coming, they will know.
Now if there is limited stock, then that again hurts Canon's sales. Why not announce CLOSER to the release date.
I'd understand if it was a NEW product, like the rumoured EF mount video camera, there is currently no predecessor on sale. So the wait builds the hype.
