Is the RED Camera all hype?

Writer/Director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) has posted an essay at his site, the thesis being that "there is a lot of hype right now about the RED camera outperforming high-end HD cameras and even 35mm film cameras. We're going to tell you why we think it's just that -- hype."

Personally, I think the jury is still out on the RED. It's a little too early to tell how much it will change big Hollywood filmmaking. I haven't seen Knowing yet but I did watch Che, which looked great. The fact that Southland is shooting on the RED, and others as well, means that it can definitely hold it's own. I do believe it has revolutionized low-budget/independent filmmaking though it might still take a while to make it's mark in Hollywood.

Still, there is some validity in what Rian is arguing and it's worth a read. Check it out here.
