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.
Maybe they do, and maybe that's why Peter Jackson needs soooo many for the Hobbit
Somewhere along the lines however, the positives for the Epic must be outweighing the negatives by a long chalk for him to be using them on a major production....
Does a small company like Red fear the 800lb Gorilla, Canon? Of course they do. And has Canon just released the spec of a camera (1Dx) with a few sample shots and lots of "well crafted" prints of capabilities but won't ship anything till Mar/Apr/May 2012? Yep, sure has... Might that be because Canon worried about Nikon and Sony??? Yup
So the difference between Red and Canon is?
