When it comes down to it, the RED cameras are not the cheapest, but there’s a reason why filmmakers choose to pay the money. In my opinion, they’re the most versatile cameras in Hollywood. But don’t take my word for it. Take a listen at what my friend Patrick Lawler has to say about it.

I share my thoughts on shooting with auto settings vs shooting in manual mode. Often times this is a topic that is misrepresented. Having clarity on this aspect of filmmaking is quite important when determining how to grab a certain shot. All opinions and ideas expressed here are solely my own and should not be taken as fact.
