Re: Apple ProRes Raw and Raw HQ


It looks exciting, and I'm assuming that it will be widely adopted.  RED and Blackmagic in particular would be a great fit for in-camera recording, and I wouldn't be all that surprised to see Blackmagic have support at NAB (either existing cameras or a new announcement).  If it works as advertised, I think Canon would be wise to add this to their cinema line (C200 and up) and maybe ditch Canon Raw Light on new models.

If Panasonic added it to the EVA1 for internal recording it would be the camera to beat unless you really, really need autofocus...

I think the odds of Apple turning Hydrogen into the next iPhone are slim to none. They're not going to release an Android phone. They may buy technology from it, though. They have a history of doing that.

If I had to guess, I'd say this is about making Apple relevant to industry professionals again after dropping the ball with the Mac Pro and FCPX.

I don't like that ProRes is a closed format. I do like that no one is scared of it, in that it's a tried-and-true industry staple. 95% of what I shoot is on ProRes 4444.
