Update : Camera is sold.
I have decided to sell one of my Red cameras. This camera is a great camera that has had very low usage time – only 120 hours on the sensor. It’s a great dependable camera that produces great images time after time. It is fitted with the interchangeable OLPF. It also comes with both a Red Pro I/O and A-Box so you can scale it up or down to suit your production needs.
With both Titanium PL Mount and Titanium Canon Mount you can run an awesome amount of lenses on this great camera.
I want $23,000 excl. GST ($25,300 incl. GST) and will provide a Tax Invoice.

Before any successful shoot there is always some planning on my part as the cameraman or DOP. I like to have an idea of what I will be shooting and the location the shoot will be in. Really the more information you have will mean you can be better prepared and save time on set and most importantly get the best images. Try to get an outline of the shots needed or a storyboard is great too.

If you’re putting a video online, you’re making a statement about your brand and its values. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “You only get one chance to make a first impression”, and any video you put online is that first impression. If the viewer is distracted by the bad composition or the incorrectly exposed image or if they can’t hear what you have to say because of poor sound recording, you’ve lost their attention and maybe even their potential business.

Deciding on new camera gear is always tough and you have to focus on which product is right for you.
I have owned and used on camera monitor-recorders for a long time. I originally bought a Atomos Samurai when I bought one of the first Red One cameras in Australia. The reason this was a great option to add to the Red camera was because it allowed me record a video stream with matching file names and timecode (to the RAW recording) the Red camera was doing. This allowed more options in post production as well as allowing for playback on set. This was in the very early days of the Red before the cameras could play back the footage. These two features alone were more than enough reason to buy the Atomos.
