Below is a message from filmmaker Alex Ferrari from numbrobot.com on using the Red Camera.  And see some of the amazing looking images he is getting with the Red and color correction:

I was just at RED headquarters yesterday. As I sit here wearing my RED camera T-shirt I just purchased I have to confess that I have drunk the RED camera Kool-Aid. My company post/vfx company Numb Robot (www.numbrobot.com) has gone full force towards the RED camera workflow and as of today has done over 15 feature, shorts, and television project on the RED. A word of warning to ALL indie filmmakers thinking of using the RED camera, it is not a toy! It’s not a Panasonic DVX or HVX! It is a real motion picture camera and it should be respected as such. You can’t pull it out of the box and shoot with it. You need to have professionals around you who understand it’s workflow and a DP who knows how to shoot it. Just because you might have an experienced editor, post supervisor or DP on your team, it does not mean that they know what to do with the RED. I have seen countless filmmakers come through my doors crying because of all the $$$ they lost in post or on prodution because they didn’t have experienced RED people with them. I write this not to scare you but to warn you. I am an indie filmmaker as well and know the feeling of having your baby hurt by inexperienced people.
