Film finally something of the past at Marvels: ordered the Red Scarlet

Red Scarlet martin beek marvels filmAfter 30+ years of shooting on 16 and 35mm film, and tinkering with DSLR and HD cameras, we made the decision to trade a major part of our film equipment in for Redcode RAW based equipment and the workflow that comes with it.

We ordered the Scarlet X on november 7, so i hope ours is among the first batch – but Red can not give an estimate delivery date yet.

Exciting times!

    Are You abandoning the AF101?

    Yes! The AF101 has been sold. I’ll miss it’s form factor; it’s a very versatile camera with many useful controls.
    I’ve sold it, since we had two AF101 owners in our production team (Barry and me), and to free up some funds for maybe buying a Red Scarlet.
    If i would have to buy such a camera now, it wouldn’t be the AF101 anymore, but the Sony FS100. Better sensor, more detail, less artifacts.
