    Seems plausible to me. A diode is, among other factors, to some degree a capacitor too.

    Same here. Before I got my Rawlite, I saw it occasionally, but never as bad as from BM cameras without ND. But with the Rawlite I don't care any more.

    The invention of the printing press has made it easy to spread a lot more bullshit than writing by hand. Does this say anything about the masterpieces of literature?

    I think you’ll like it. Arri is famous for its skin tones, and BM is damn close.
    While I liked our Reds for nature, I never found their skin tones that great.

    No, not yet. Adobe must have a different arrangement with Apple. At BM's side only Fusion (standalone) is able to write ProRes.
    Why not use Cineform or DNxHR?

    True. But on a test pattern you'd still get chroma moiré with a Red. At least they are interchangeable (and not as expensive as Sony's).

    You can't do it right for everybody. Alan Roberts from the...

    Yes, aliasing can be a problem. I was also used to the 'softness' Red was blamed for, which actually just meant they were using a proper OLPF. On a Red, I could never provoke aliasing in a real-life...

    I was one of the first Red users in my country and I have worked with quite a few models, from the Red One to the Epic Dragon.
    Now I own a UP 4.6K G1 and love it. Already answered your question...

    I have only a decent iMac with the Radeon 580 Pro and an i5 CPU.
    It is playing 4.6K BRAW shot at 60 fps and compressed 5:1 in an UHD timeline (so, it's scaling) at 60 fps. CPU load is around 60%

    True, it's not the same story, but cruel nevertheless. A dear friend in Germany lost his business about this.
    For me , it's just another reason not to invest in such high-priced cameras. As said...

    In 16 you can export without any recompression if there was no change to video.
    And then, we once made a test by forcing 10 generations of ProRes 4444. The 10th was visually lossless. The same thing...

    MOV is a container, not a codec ( just like MXF). You can put very large and very small formats into these 'boxes'.

    I was one of the first users of a Red One in my country. Nobody had any confidence in them at the time (else Peter Jackson, maybe).

    Even Canon's own photo lenses are following the specs pretty loosely in my experience. They might do better when making a cine lens.
    But since most people will use photo lenses, I'd complain with...

    All elecronic cameras can have such problems, even Arris or Sonys. I have used 5 different Red cameras and 4 BM ones. Still a small sample, and neither brand was free of troubles.

    Since you are into fashion (with all the textile patterns), I'd wholeheartedly second getting the Rawlite OLPF.
    You might be in for some nasty surprises as a former Red owner without it.

    Happened to us with an expensive Sony CineAlta back in the day. These are very complex electronic devices, and only NASA or the military can afford to burn-in the components for an extended period

    There might be some sloppy programming of the player, though, maybe they never tested such long files....

    A pretty interesting alternative is a superwide screen, very nice for a good overview of the timeline.
