Australian Gold Coast and Queensland to Host 2018 Commonwealth Games

November 15th, 2011

Congratulations to our mates on the AU Gold Coast for winning the hosting of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Brett Clements and the crew at PlatinumHD used the announcement as an opportunity to take their new Red out for a spin.

Brett says:

The good, the bad and the ugly…This was shot at 5k and resolved to 2k using the RedRocket card and then transcoded again by our own systems for streaming.

Our first lesson; you have to run what’s called a Black Calibration prior to every shoot, and when the camera reaches operating temperature, otherwise, excessive grain enters the mix.

We shot this using a Cinemod mount to fix a Zeiss 2.8 25mm manual prime – which becomes about 33mm with the crop factor.

We’re still waiting for our Canon mount. In terms of RED, its no free lunch; we’ve spent tens of thousands on the work-flow. We have a long, Long, LONG way to go.
