I had my first chance to operate RED’s newest beast recently on a studio shoot. Let me say that it is actually very unbeastly, at least compared to it’s predecessor, the RED ONE. It sizes in at about, I’m guessing here, 40 percent of the RED ONE’s size. Of course, that is good and bad: good, because we always like smaller; bad, because now all the attachments (viewfinder, LCD, cables, etc) have to live much closer together, which makes building the camera that much more of a hassle. But hey, you can not argue with the image quality relative to the footprint and I’m a big fan especially of the touch screen LCD for all the menu controls.
