Pirates of the Caribbean 4 3D is currently filming with RED ONE M-X cameras by Dariusz Wolski, ASC. BUDGET: $300 million
"We tested ALL the digital camera's available and against film and we chose the RED M-X for Pirates of the Caribbean 4. We have had no camera problems with the RED ONEs and we have had the kind of support that is above and beyond the call. We didn't know what to expect when we started with 13 RED ONE M-X cameras (supplied from Panavision), but the cameras are performing flawlessly under extreme conditions and we could not be happier. Thank you to the people and the incredible support from both Panavision and RED. If we had to make the decision again we wouldn't change a thing

THE RED ONE M-X cameras were chosen over ARRI Alexa for Pirates 4 !!!
Cameron has mentioned doing his next project at 5k 48fps 3D !
Don't forget that the EPIC is 5K 120FPS camera and it has 16-bit processing and also HDR option. EPIC will give you TRUE 4K resolution or even more! I am impressed with 4K ARRILASER prints with RED ONE Mysterium (OLD SENSOR).
There is a new RED BOMB EVF which is far better then the older one... Available in a few weeks or less.
i like to use LCD 9" instead of viewfinders. Its much easier to pan camera and handheld work. OVF is a great thing but its not necessary in my opinion.
here is one frame of the RED ONE Mysterium (OLD SENSOR).
It's a 4K JPEG file.
It was graded on Lustre in 4K and regrained at the end. I shot it with fantastic Optica Elite S35 MKIII lenses (200 lines/mm resolution) . This frame is shot with 75mm T1.3 at T4.
Do You have any complaints?
Please take a close look at this frame PIXEL BY PIXEL.
BTW this frame is taken from motion.
