Ribisi and RED

Giovanni Ribisi talks with, and about, RED movie cameras.
I'm a big fan of Ribisi as a actor, and it's cool to hear that he's getting into the other side of the camera too.

The upcoming RED sensor will have a 15-stop native dynamic range. That's awesome, it will cover virtually contrast situation one comes across normally.

They are filming in 4K or bigger, meaning 4000 pixel horizontally. And you can pull any of the frames and get a high quality still image from it, that's pretty amazing. Apparently some photographers are now working with that, just blazing away at 30 or 50 frames per second, and choosing their shots later.
