Why start a thread about a RED film camera? It's not medium format. In fact it's a very different beast. People who think this will replace still cameras for more than a few niche purposes are kidding themselves.
I had a look at the Mysterium specs and as far as I can tell you get:
- a very wide aspect ratio, nearly 2:1
- no control whatsoever over exposure time
- no variable ISO setting
- zero compatibility with flash
- serious power requirements if you want use continuous lighting on location
- no used market for cheap parts or lenses
- only 12 MP
- less dynamic range than MFDB
(if I'm wrong about any of these please show us all a link with more info)
All for $17,500, and that's just the body.
If anyone else introduced a camera with a fixed ISO setting and a fixed shutter speed at this price and resolution, the forum would trash it immediately, and rightly so.
if i asume right, a f stop is represented by 6dB (because 6dB increase means double the voltage and 6dB decrease half the voltage, as far as i can remember lightcalculations are based on voltage...)
so 66dB would result in 11 fstop... not that bad i think...
if the red has a fixed iso and fixed shutter no one would buy it i think...
