    Linus, in this case you f***ed up. That camera is for cinematic shots, hence, movies. It's made for shots that cost a lot more than the camera itself, not for product reviews or pc building videos. In this case, just stop thinking inside of the IT world box and move to the movie filming world 'cos buddy you're just seeing it from the wrong perspective. When shit CANNOT go wrong, you need hardware that has to be flawless and capture every f***ing single detail you possibly can at zero loss.

      1st off: RED is a scam.. but some justification for their decision:
      You know that these channels run a company of over 20 (I think, idk the exact number)... so this camera makes enough money to support that.
      Also, they use this camera for actual commercial shoots that they occasionally do.

      But still.. RED Mags are so stupid..

      It's because these cameras are made specifically for high end use, like Hollywood type shit. They aren't for someone who just wants to make USclip videos, they're for someone who wants to get the best quality they can. They even insure the data storage so that if something ever happens they will go through and fine ever bit of footage so it's not lost. This is the kind of camera you use when you're getting shots forth millions of dollars, and can't risk any of it being bad. It's the quality+niche+cost+time and effort it takes to make one of these by hand in the US that makes it cost so much.

    I understand that your sole purpose on USclip is to be a little bitch-boy for views, so here’s one more for you just so I can leave this comment. Your misinformation on things like this, and most of the things you talk about on your garbage channel are being scrutinized by someone (you) who is in no way qualified let alone educated in the field in anyway. People who watch your channel should take caution and understand that you’re here to act like a little douche for views. Tell me I’m wrong.

      Well you are the one thats uneducated. Check the video from JinniTech. He exposes Red's mini mag are nothing but mSATA. If they do this for storage then sure they do that for all other accessories.

      @Snake 123 Corridor Video is bullshit. What say are saying is just nonsense. The SSDs RED is using are one of the most cheap on the market. Even worse than the SSD in actual cheap supermarket computer. A lot of people complain about errors with the devices - Linus also did i guess.
