Many Independent Filmmakers are waiting for low-end, ENG-level, hybrid video/still camera “Red Scarlet”, mostly because of the price (between $4.000-$12,000).
The Red Digital Cinema Camera Company manufactures digital cinematography cameras and accessories for professional and cinematic use. After more than a year of hyping its Scarlet , RED has now announcement new cinema camera Epic with more higher price.
The original specs promised 3k resolution for under $3k and it did not have interchangeable lenses. New specs were released in November of 2008, showing a dizzying array of options under the name Scarlet. It is a completely modular system, allowing you to select a “brain” with a sensor chip of 2/3″ to full frame 35mm, and version with a fixed lens or an interchangeable lens system. Accessories like lenses and recording units are additional. In October 2010, RED announced a further delay of the product in order to add HDR capabilities. This the most recent of countless delays.
