I am seeking for someone flying a Red One on his sled already. Since the camera does not have analogue outputs I thought the signal must be converted to composite somehow. I talked to a tech today and he told me tht there were severe problems converting the signal through a Aja converter. It only produced a b/w picture and he thought the SDI signal of the camera was not clean. As far as I know the Red has two 1080 outputs. So anyone had the chance to give it a try using an "analogue" signal chain to the monitor?

Thanks

Markus

Markus,

Only flown the RED once, but we used an AJA without any issues.

aloha markus
best bet is to get ahold of a monitor that excepts an sdi signal
i have flown the red a number of times now
and i use the hd/sdi output from the red thru my post
to the monitor no problem,beautiful pictures
i actually think that my monitor looks better than
the stock red lcd monitor,but just my opinion

have fun

What sled are you using? Curious about the wiring. Thanks.

Heard some issues about a wobbly baseplate coming with the production pack especially in cold weather. Can you second that?

That's what I figured.
