Hey guys,,
Just finished a Film, shooting on the RED cameras. Ended up doing alot of Steadicam and 'AR' work using my AR rig.

A great camera for this sort of work! loving it...

Shooting with the F23 at the moment, not so happy this week...

more pics to come...

regards,
AJ.

Hi Andrew,

Looking good there. I have a red shoot coming up in 2 weeks, also with my AR. How do you transmit the video to the videovillage? As i remember correct, there is only one out on that camera, and cant be splitted?

Also, any AR tips regarding the Red?

Greetings Job

Hey Job,

The RED we used a few weeks back only output one monitoring choice at a time, being the RED's monitor or the HD-SDI output, not both (until the update). To transmit you'll have to down convert for NTSC. Then you can T-off to your monitor & transmitter. OR if your Monitor has HD-SDI and can loop out... then you could go HiDef to your monitor and then loopout of the monitor to either downconvert to transmit or hardwire to video village.

You can try to T-off from the HD-SDI of the camera, but I doubt your signal will be happy with the T-off.

Jo Job,
We had to use downconverters all the time on the cameras, even when handheld etc. The problem at the moment is that only one output is available at a time (pretty stupid really). So we used a downconverter (red byte) and had a cinemonitor for normal operating / handheld and then just took the downconverted signal for Steadicam work - transmit the signal to the director...

will be good when that get it working properly...

No tricks really with the RED in an 'AR', just strip everything off the body and go for it!

O one small thing actually... the camera was a little bottom heavy in the AR cage when I was using it. I didnt have time to fiddle too much, but would be good to put a spacer between the camera and AR side plate or add some weight to the top of the camera to get the weight more central in the cage...

regards,
-AJ
