Cinematographer Rob McLachlan: HDSLRs and the Panasonic GH1 (http://www.eoshd.com/content.php/209-Exclusive-Interview-with-cinematographer-Rob-McLachlan-ASC-CSC-on-Fox-s-Human-Target-HDSLRs-GH1)

I thought this was interesting:
The problem with the RED guys is not that the camera doesn't make good pictures, it does (I shot a Nickelodeon movie on one last year. Looks GREAT but the post people had a ton of headaches and overages), it's just Arri and Panavision and Canon and Panasonic and Sony have a world wide network of dealers and service agents. I think the Red guys thought they were making something SO great they could just sell them like widgets and so long. I don't think they realized the level of support a professional cameraman is accustomed to and expects.

I don't like their smug arrogance. Techno geeks is fine but they need to know DP's.

Well, we were in agreement on Red, as you probably know Ian :hv20-smilie03:
Nice to see the article posted here. Hope you enjoy it everyone.
Rob had some suggestions for Panasonic. I have suggested he gets in touch with Jan Crittenden Livingston but if anyone else can suggest a product manager or someone in Panasonic USA who can act as a sounding board for his ideas, please do drop me a line at the site. :hv20-smilie70:

Looking forward to part 2 of the interview, to see more images of his setups and to read what he'd like to see done with the camera.
