Vincent Laforet responding to Jim Jannard of RED:
Every camera has it’s place. Every camera excels in some things – and fails in others. Every end user has specific needs, quality standards, and budgets…
In the end – learn all of the tools (if you can) – and use the best tool for any given job.
Jim made a blunt comment about a certain Canon Commercial that made quite a buzz in the photographic & DSLR flimmaking. He is a technical guy and the camera he invented continues to shape the digital cinematography field, but there’s one problem, aside from a technically capable camera (on paper), his company tends to over promise and under deliver, sometime between the wait, the HD-DSLR cameras started to appear and gained a wide audience support in the mainstream filmmaking industry, I’m not surprised if Jim is pissed off for that, but calling others names and telling them to be ashamed is just a bad, bad move.
