    Red Digital Cinema has come under fire recently over allegations that their Mini-Mag storage cards are just cheap commodity SSDs in a fancy enclosure. As it turns out, there's some truth to these assertions, but the situation is not quite as simple as it's made out to be. Let's unwrap it.

    Is Linus really arguing people should not be surprised they were being 'scammed' by Red for their ridiculous markups, and this makes it all 'ok'?

    This is impressive and sad at the same time, what a way to scam people with old hardware.

    On a positive side, using custom connector can make both on the camera and on the SSD more resistent to wear.

    Thanks to Jinni Tech for the great original video (with no commercial at all), forcing you to finally do that video (filled with commercial) about this Red BS with their mini mag cards. And as you so often say in this video "Whatever".

    The only overly expensive thing about the RED Mini Mag is the casing itself...literally.

    Absolutely hilarious, I'm a Blackmagic shooter sense their early days and I even wrote my Msc. thesis on this matter, how Red was able over charge for their products and how with out any fight from customers, they made millions on up-selling cheap and available technology, I compared Red to the business model of Blackmagic Design " developing high end products at cheaper prices" and how that would change the marker forever. 5 year later Red is caught cheating and black magic Releases a 6k camera capable of raw recording and it cost 2.5k. #mindblown #imtheoracle

    Why is Linus defending Red ? For selling cheap stuff at 42 times the price ???? Does he get free media from Red ??? Probably Wright ..... 😉

    Had to stop watching as it just felt like excuses for RED. Hopefully, it became or balanced but I can’t believe anyone would cover for RED on this. Oh btw this is not a bot. May check back later to see how it finishes up but literally couldn’t watch any more. Best bit was when you said you called RED on it years ago but then you seemed to be ok with the price they charge?

    Redundant recording to two seperate cards at once should have been the standard in all professional cameras ten years ago. But somehow, it is still not even the norm in 2019...

  • Gianni Grosso
    Gianni Grosso 7 日 前 +5

    wait, so, the whole time it's just been an ssd inside a case, and nobody bothered to open one up and look until now?

    • Ctuchik

      Lots of people opened it up and complained about it. But as Linus says, it just didn't blow up until another scam competitor tried to cash in on it..

  • user540000
    user540000 7 日 前

    These are commercial products. Commercial products having always done things like this to make extra profit where they can. Its not like the price of their cards was a secret, you knew the price of their cards before you bought the camera and factored that into your decision.

    When it comes down to being technical, misleading the customer by exaggerating a claim is in fact bait and switch false advertising.
    Until we the people stop accepting such clear and obvious deceptions, these bait and switch scenarios will continue to happen.
    This is the fault of the political system of extremes. Rather than passing legislation that protects people from false claims, the extremist on the right declare: "there's to many regulations." while the extremists on the left declare business to be evil incarnate.
    The truth is, neither the left nor the right is willing to pass reasonable regulations that both protect consumers while not putting companies out of business. Eliminating misleading advertisement will not put companies out of business, it will only serve to make business more ethical, and that won't hurt anyone.

      that's still viral. we're kinda desensitized to popularity but a mob of 76k people could easily destroy a power plant. it seems small in numbers, but the weight of their emotions is really, really powerful.

    The old FAT file systems are horrible in more than one way when it comes to flash media.
    Leave old obsolete file systems where they belong: In the past... On the spinning rust... which it was ultimately designed for.
    Personally, I don't understand why the industry has held onto it for so long. Especially when there's far FAR FAAAR better file systems that are free to use both for commercial as well as personal use.
    I guess it's that M-(dollar sign) company that refuses to update and adapt.
