Happy New Year from Blackwood!  

We celebrated by showing off the DR of our Dragon Carbon Fiber with some fireworks displays.  And by “display” we mean we summoned our inner pyro and ignited a pile of fireworks.  ((All proper protection and precautions were taken to ensure we were not subject to any danger or harm; and more importantly our camera was safe)).

The detail shown with this camera and it’s capabilities in low-light environments is amazing.  Take a closer look at the bottom image, as it’s a 1:1 crop from the image above it.

For you cinephiles: Schneider Xenon FF-Prime Lens, wide open (2.1) 35mm and 50mm; 96fps, RC 14:1

We packed up our RED Dragon and our fresh out-of-the-box Schneider Xenon FF-Prime lenses and captured the life and landscapes of the Pioche and Great Basin areas of Nevada. 

A 3.5 hour ride north brought us to the Amazon Ranch Equestrian Facility.  There we were able to pick up amazing shots of the beautiful horses; both trained and wild.  The day also included some time-lapse of fantastic clouds over the snow covered mountains, as well as footage taken right outside of Area 51.  

We returned to Las Vegas in time to see the attraction of the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign.

Blackwood Cinema just took receipt of our Schneider Xenon FF-Primes, available in 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm PL mount. These lenses were just released and are among the first production sets in the world. (Also on order, Xenon FF-Prime 25mm and 100mm due in late January.)

These lenses are now part of our standard RED Dragon package which includes your choice of either the RED PL mount or the RED Motion Mount.

Carbon Fiber, Magnesium, Aluminum Dragons

Daenerys Targayen would be proud to be the mother of any and all of them.  Jarred Land, RED Digital Cinema CEO, sums up the manufacturing and production differences for the new RED Dragons. Check out Blackwood’s Carbon Fiber Dragon, now available for rent!

"Carbon Fiber and Magnesium Dragon can’t possibly come from the same lines that pump out Aluminum Dragons. Let me break it down:

Carbon Fiber is a composite material made up of woven fibers and a Polymer ( i.e glue ) . That process involves molds, ovens and some extremely talented craftsmen.

Aluminum is a metal that is machined or cast, in Irvine we machine Aluminum using large 5 axis cnc machines, with again some extremely talented craftsmen called machinist.

The Magnesium parts go through a process very similar to Aluminum, being machined in Irvine. But Magnesium is very different from Aluminum, it is very very flammable, and hence requires different machines than the Aluminum mills with C02 blasts and suppressants and different coolants to avoid blowing the entire building up.

Hope that clears things up.. and explains why they are on separate lines.”
