In this video I share why I sold my RED Scarlett-W after owning it for 18 months and how you should think about your next camera purchase or that one you "dream" of owning one day.

Here are some of the main reasons why I sold it.

* My clients don’t need or ask for 4K
* I don’t end up taking it because I’m worry about it getting stolen and it is so heavy
* The batteries only last an hour, so I have to bring a bunch
* No autofocus (which matters more when you’re a one man band or are filming yourself)
* I find the image is actually really noisy.
* Filming with it is just slower and more work.
* Footage takes a longer time to backup.
* Takes longer to make proxies.
* Takes longer to export.
* No built-in ND Filters
* No built-in XLRs
* $1750 for the module with a mic input jack + HDMI/SDI out
* Really want to go back to using hybrid cameras (I hate packing two kinds of cameras for photo + video needs)
* Would get ~$20,000 in cash for it to put towards other business investments.
