    More Red Camera falsehoods.

    Wonderful images from these cameras (see "Youth" if you never have, wow) but it really does start to seem as if Red users have been lied to for a very long time.

    I've seen nice images out of RED cameras but what they have done and said to their customers is considered pretty poor behavior in almost any sphere. They have been riding on the coat tails of others and trying to take the credit and brazenly bare faced about it have said it was all American designed and built. Sorry if they were the best cameras in the world and my contention is that they are not and they would not get one penny of my money just based on their business principles alone. Or should I say lack off. Very sad.

    EDIT:
    Was just looking at the litany of lawsuits involving RED. Kind of sums it all up really:

    Lawsuits

    On August 18, 2008, Red filed a lawsuit against the electronics company LG over its use of the name Scarlet.[26] Red accused LG "... of taking the 'Scarlet' brand name from the camera company" after Red had denied LG's request to use it.

    On September 23, 2011, Jannard announced that his personal email account was compromised by former Arri executive Michael Bravin.[28] A lawsuit against Arri and Bravin was filed at the end of 2011, and settled and dismissed in 2013.

    On June 27, 2012, Red sued Wooden Camera, a manufacturer of third party accessories, for patent infringement.

    In February 2013, Red filed for an injunction against Sony, claiming that several of its new CineAlta products, particularly the 4K-capable F65, infringed on patents the company held. They requested that Sony not only be forced to stop selling the cameras, but that they be destroyed as well. Sony filed a countersuit against Red in April 2013, alleging that Red's entire product line infringed on Sony patents. In July 2013, both parties filed jointly for dismissal, and as of July 20, 2013, the case is closed.

    After a failed lawsuit by RED against the maker of JinniMag, a third party copy of the RED Mini Mag, it was revealed that RED Digital Cinema Cameras have been lying to their customers and possibly obtained their patents by deceiving the USPTO.

    In May 2019, Apple Inc. filed a lawsuit against RED.COM, LLC over several patents relating to digital cinema cameras and sensor processing.

    The word "unbecoming" comes to mind here.
    Big sources matter.

    To go Red is just pointless these days as there are so many other cameras better them.

    I commented on the other thread but the “revelations” in this installment are pretty underwhelming, especially for those of us who were there along the sidelines.
