Now that the industry has embraced the nascent technology and added new tools and workflows, filmmakers-from independents on up-are leading the charge on establishing new rules.

You've got the basic operations down and now you'll learn how to use the camera in a production environment and discover the various options in post.

Well-known filmmakers and industry leaders share their own bleeding-edge production methodologies throughout, offering a rare view into this exciting new world of filmmaking. Here are just a few things you'll learn to do: "Build a RED package that fits your budget "Set up for sound recording and learn which audio tools to use "Achieve the optimal exposure using RED's onboard tools and external gear "Edit your footage with step-by-step instructions for Avid, Final Cut Pro, and Premiere Pro "Work color correction into your HD, film, or Web projects "Prep your project for output and archive your footage "Learn from pros such as Rodney Charters, ASC (DP, 24), Simon Duggan, ACS (DP, Knowing), Albert Hughes (Director, The Book of Eli), and many others using RED "Stay up-to-date and download additional resources at the companion Web site at www.peachpit.com/red "If you want to dive in and starting using the RED, look no further. This book is the next best thing to having a top-notch production crew with RED experts working by your side." -Arthur Albert, Director of Photography, ER "An essential guide loaded with knowledge, I recommend it as the first purchase for any filmmaker who is thinking about owning or currently owns the RED." -Rodney Charters, ASC, Director of Photography, 24 "If you're planning to shoot with the RED camera, this is the book to get!" -Rob Cohen, Director, The Fast and the Furious "Noah Kadner takes the best practices of using the RED camera and shares them with the rest of us in this indispensable guide." -Simon Duggan, ACS, Director of Photography, Live Free or Die Hard, Knowing "Written in an easy-to-follow style, yet thorough in covering everything from production to postproduction to making money from your investment, this is a book that should be on every filmmaker's desk and in their kit bag." -Norman Hollyn, Film Editor, Instructor, and author of The Lean Forward Moment "If you want to see how the pros are using the RED camera, you need this book." -Nancy Schreiber, ASC, Cinematographer, Every Day

    Works, but could be better . . .

    I purchased this adapter in the hopes it would allow me to use my FD glass on my EOS 5D until I could afford equivalent EF lenses. I used it with my FD 50mm f1.4, FD 135mm f2.5 SC lenses and did some experimenting with a 400mm f6.3 T-Mount lens.Here are some of my conclusions:1) The adapter's lens diameter is too small for a full frame camera like the 5D. This leads to vignetting which would be a problem if you try to use the image out to the edge. It was not as noticeable with the 135mm lens as it was with the 50mm or 400mm. Note that this may not be an issue with crop sensor cameras. I wonder if the this problem could be fixed by increasing the adapter's lens diameter.2) The experiment with the 400mm lens was to remove the adapter's lens and use it as an extension tube to improve the close focus of that particular lens. I would not recommend doing that since the adapter lens does not come out as one piece - so you have to be very careful to remember how to... 3/5 oldphotog - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fotodiox Adapter Works Well

    0 5/5 Carlooch - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter, for Canon FD, New FD, FL Lens to Canon EOS Camera, for Canon 1D, 1DS, Mark II, III, IV, 1DX, 1DC, 5D, 5D Mark II, II 7D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 70D, Digital Rebel T5i, T4i, T3i, T3, C300, C500 (Camera) The adapter does what it says it does. Yes you lose a little detail because of the extra glass piece. I have 4 FD lenses that I can now use with my Canon 60D. Believe it or not, when I shoot in video mode I love the way the video looks when I use this adapter. It has a slight movie-like faint blur. It's a good effect. If you are looking to take really crisp pictures, you might not want to purchase. Don't get me wrong though, the pictures still look really good. You just lose a little detail. Hope this review helps with your decision. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 8, 2011

    Does exactly what its supposed to

    Having a few older canon FD mount lenses from 30 years ago, I wanted to play with them on my 500d. This adapter worked perfectly for doing that. It fills a hole. It was exactly the one pictured on the web site, no substitutions.There is no problem with the adapter, however there are a few things to be said when using it.1. Watch out with non-canon lenses. I have a phoenix-samyang 500mm zoom that I tried it with, It worked, but the clearance was a little tight, and doesnt lock down all the way. I had a lentar 80-200mm zoom, and I had to remove the stop screw from the locking ring and back it off a notch. Now when I mount the lens, the whole lens wants to turn, not just the locking ring. I put it away, not intending on using it again. There were NO problems with my canon 50mm prime lens. In fact, it looks pretty good. I have another off-brand 28mm lens, which also works well.2. Pay attention to the lock-open indicator when attaching the lens. It must... 5/5 theosus (nunyabeeswax) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The right price for a helluva fun lens

    0 5/5 Baroquebloke - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 25mm f/1.4 C Mount CCTV Lens for Sony NEX-3 NEX-5 C-NEX & Canon, Nikon, Olympus EP-1, E-P2, E-PL1, Panasonic G, GH, GF C-M4/3 (Electronics) I bought this lens and an adapter for my Nikon V1 as I was having trouble finding motivation to get out and shoot having just relocated. I desperately wanted to get the 32 1.2 but have nowhere near the 800+ bucs to drop. So, after reading some interesting reviews I went for this tiny lens.And WOW. No, by modern lens standards, this lens is actually quite terrible. You can't really call it sharp. At all. but the results are fun and funky and can be very visually cool.I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone that likes to take artsy, funky shots. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 4, 2013
