    Hi There Phil

    Just a note about the res of the Red camera. I work in Film post production and the “k” resolution is what we talk in.

    It refers to the horizontal resolution of your image, we often work and deliver in many different aspect ratios ( 1.33 to 1, 1.77 to 1 and what you end up watching in the cinema is 2.35 to 1) so it makes sense to only talk about the resolution in one of your dimensions.

    1k (1024 pixels horizontally) is for very rough test versions and 2k (2048 pixels) is enough for final renders to put out to film.

    So full HD at 1920 pixels wide is very close to the resolution you are seeing on film in the cinema. (except what is put out to film has a higher bit depth and a wider gamut)

    Digital cinema is promising to bring 4k projection but I haven’t seen any post houses work on visual effects at 4k

    Hope that helps.
    -James

    Thanks for that James.
    Can we Skype you when we are out of our depth?
    No wonder I am confused when it comes to cinema formats. The 4K image from the RED One is listed as Active Pixel Array 4520 (h) x 2540 (v).
    I figure it is like all image formats and has its beginnings in analogue counterparts.
