I heard that there are bugs in the RED ONE that make it not stable for fast pan and other issues that make it shut down.

It's a lie.

I own several red cameras and never experienced that problem.
Also I have never heard for that bug.

RED ONE - Over Heating?

RED ONE - Over Heating?

i did some searches and found a couple of things that i wonder if it is a constant issue? See below.

"One of the largest complaints that we had shooting with the RED camera, besides the inconvenient and complicated work flow, was that the damn camera kept overheating. We were very lucky to have two RED cameras on set because that way we could keep shooting when our main ‘A’ camera overheated. When the cameras overheated, that camera was out until it cooled down meaning that without the second camera we would have been shut down several times during our production day. The RAID drive made matters worse as the heat from the drive made the camera overheat faster than the camera using the CF cards.

All things considered, the RED camera had a lot of features that the DP and the production team liked, particularly its light weight and quality of the image. However, the over heating problem and the 4 minute shooting limit when shooting on CF cards are serious issues that make this camera less than ideal for most independent productions where time is money and money is scarce."

I was wondering if the overheating has been worked out?

We've done over 100 commercials, 20 music videos and 3 features without any problem.

I believe that those cameras were damaged.

I have 3 cameras with 6 drives and 48CFs. Everything works perfect !

bug = damage; damage = bug

bug = damage; damage = bug

if those cameras were damaged, then they could have indeed had a bug, then, no? companies like Red welcome feedback from users so that they can continue to improve their products.

We had an issue with the Red overheating once at a music video in the middle of a very large parking lot. That coupled with 100+ heat and tons of Houston humidity the camera did finally shut off from the heat. Once cooled we hung a 4x4 solid over the camera and it was fine. We've been looking at making a cooling hood for the camera, once we get to it we'll post some videos on the making of.
