News about NVIDIA for RED Raw footage

RED Helium 8K

RED Epic-W 8K is a cinematographic camera that mounts a 35.4 MP Helium sensor and can record in 8K, using REDCODE Raw, which is the versatile and powerful proprietary codec of the company.

In fact, since its first appearance on the market, RED has stood out for these two fundamental aspects: resolution and Raw recording with a wide dynamic range.

Shooting in Raw allows you to work with great flexibility in post-production on the images, as well as the high resolution, which can be exploited for digital visual effects, for stabilization, for reframing and allows you to capture details and nuances that would slip to lower resolutions.

A few months ago, RED has introduced the possibility of editing its Raw footage up to 8k in real time, not only with its own dedicated graphics acceleration cards, but it has also opened the support of third-party video cards. The NVIDIA manufacturer in this regard offers the following models to the cause: Quadro RTX 6000 and 8000, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX.

NVIDIA GPU: Quadro RTX 6000, Quadro RTX 8000, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, TITAN RTX

Everyone’s question is always the same when faced with major changes of this kind, what is going to be the best video card of the future in terms of value for money? Will we be able to take advantage of the super versions (GeForce 2060, 2070, 2080) or will they be more performing for gaming as they are now? What do you think about it?

Best creative lomo camera?

The retro looking Harinezumi 2+++ is a built for artists camera.

It is a little pearl in the desert, very undervalued at its release and, like all good things, appreciated and reevaluated over time. Produced in Tokyo, the camera expresses a truly unique color rendering. It is shaped like a roll of 110 film and is equipped with 10 creative effects and multiple exposure modes. Harinezumi 2 +++ shoots in different frame rates, and enables the user to create a vintage looking movie like super 8 retro style videos.

Its size gives the possibility to take a creative movie on the spot, furthermore you can control the sound by switching it on/off. This japanese device in its second version since the original one, has been used by famous artists and musicians from allover the world to produce amazing digital wonders.

Personally, I used the  Harinezumi creatively in a movie mounted on my Red Helium (using a magic arm) to have the double perspective of the actor, creating a double look a the same time: the vision of the present and the vision of the past.
