    Now you have me curious Mitch. I though I was well versed on this sort of thing. I'd like to know more. We'll have to have coffee sometime. There's always something to learn. While I've not done...

    It's not weird. RED's operating temperature specification is 0 - 40C which is the same as commercial grade chips.

    What validation are you guys talking about? Each chip, before it is even turned into a plastic encased finished product, has to pass tests that make sure it conforms to the data sheet...

    Exactly. RED doesn't have to say anything about JinniMags. If you are a client based company and the client sees you plugging JinniMags into your camera and you lose the days shooting, you've had it....

    From the Roman family name Paulus, which meant "small" or "humble" in Latin. Adding to that, the suffix of my last name also means small. So my name is Small Small.

    I'm happy to say that the...

    But you left us hanging. 123 man.... tell us about 123. We must know. Is it some secret coded sequence? The meaning of life? The last 3 digits of your social security number ??????

    Some of the seemingly outrageous markup we see is just necessary. Adding to what Mitch said, there are fixed costs that have to be recovered. In the world I worked in, we routinely marked up anything...

    Good one, but no. But a similar somewhat captive customer. How else do you get away with those kinds of markups?

    I have both perspectives. I know exactly what manufacturer's do because I used to be one of those evil people that charge egregious prices for proprietary commodities. We used to charge an...

    That's the beauty of it. I have a new respect for James. He used the same subtle tongue in cheek humor I enjoy so much ... and the bonus is, he was patient and waited for the right time to throw a...

    Everybody does it. HP printers are dead cheap. But it's a battle to get past their auto-subscribe ink cartridge service when you install it.

    Why jump on RED? The other specialty camera cards...

    YES, YES, YES. YES, and YES! So what the fudge are we here for? Film makers go on about motion cadence, image quality, 4:2:2, 10-bit, megapixels, bokeh, film grain, lens breathing, chromatic...

    The need for $40,000 primes doesn't change because the camera got better. You either need them or you don't. None of us need the $40,000 primes. But someone thinks they do or they wouldn't exist....

    Ok, understood. Yes, caster/cart wheels bearings are garbage. The problem is that most applications are satisfied as long as the wheel rotates. A sloppy roller bearing and they're happy. I did find...
