    Major Breakthrough today..

    Me and Jim put the proto Red-Nikon mount on Franky, mounted a DSLR Nikon Prime, and took some test shots. We were very pleased with the results.

    All of you praying that you could use Nikon Still lenses on Red, your day just got alot better.

    Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4 D Manual aperture at f4.0 ( Some Nikon glass, including new models, allow for manual aperture changes.)

    here is a still.. 4.9k downrezed to 2k and turned into a medium quality 8 bit JPG.

    Sheesh.. MOOOORE pictures??!!

    (And very nice looking ones at that - again)

    This is very good news, 2K on a cheap 50mm lens ... this is how many many lower budget users will be using RED.

    Viewed at 100% and larger this still appears more sharp than the 4k stills I've seen to date- is it just the downsampling, or was additional sharpening applied? There is a hint of a darker edge around the "Gretag macbeth" chart text but it's about half a pixel wide so it's hard to say if it's a sharpening halo or just the JPEG compression.

    That's incredible. Way better than I was hoping for.

    Is there any way we could get this at 4k? I'm very interested in how that lens resolves the chart.

    Interesting. Is it possible to mount Canon L series lenses on that thing? I don't own any of these yet, so I don't know about manual aperature.

    You know, this RED camera could really see some action with the wildlife National Geographic types who shoot lion kills and nature stuff in Africa.

    Perfect. My Nikons will get me started! If Red makes a Canon FD mount as well I'll be in lens heaven.

    Could (theoretically) RED drive the Aperature on SLR lenses?

    The mechanical interface is there on the lenses, how about build a motorized other half into the lens mount? Because, all manual (the right way) settings aside, Auto-iris, or better yet, programmable/remote-iris would be one hell of a cool feature to have in the toolbox!
