Both RED and Fujifilm are attempting to feature Camera to Cloud (C2C) directly into their cameras. This will be game changing to certain video creators and film makers since there is no requirement of additional hardware or hard drives.
The RED cameras were already capable of C2C features in the past with the help of Teradek Cube 655.
But now, cameras such as the RED V-Raptor and the V-Raptor XL will be able to upload 8K REDCODE RAW video files directly to the cloud from the camera. It doesn’t require any physical device! This feature will be available in late 2022.
However, a high bandwidth connection is required to actually upload the footage to the cloud. But, if there’s an ample internet connection, this feature is a boon to all video creators using the RED Raptor.
Imagine uploading an image to social media directly from your camera! Well, hard to imagine it now, right? Well, Frame.io has also integrated with the Fujifilm cameras.
The mind-blowing thing is that Fujifilm X-H2S can also upload ProRes video files, which means that you could shoot a high quality wedding shoot and send it to your editing team to tweak things a little bit without even having to carry a physical drive. It’s that convenient.
