New Red Cameras “Put Other Manufacturers to Shame”

Although I couldn’t make it this year, the long arms of NAB have reached me in London. One of the hottest announcements was Red’s new line-up for 2009.

First off, the Red Ray, a hardware-based RedCode player.

Secondly, the much-anticipated Scarlet, a camera targeted at the lower end of the market. The Scarlet boasts a 3k resolution, with frame rates of 1-120 fps. So much for low-end.

Finally, something which has been kept very quiet, the new Epic camera. This is an improvement over the Red One, with 5k resolution and a full super-35 size sensor.

Although Red are not taking pre-orders this time, they are offering a deal that sounds too good to be true: buy a Red One today and then part-exchange it against the cost of the Epic (the pricing of which has yet to be set) at it’s purchasing price. As one member of the CML… put it,

…the RED ONE to EPIC trade-in program certainly puts other manufacturers to shame.
