    From D90 to scarlet is a big bloody jump.. Hard to justify unless you're making wads of cash out of it!

    Im keen to check out an S35 or FF35 in canon mount and obviously the associated dslr accessories

    what about the fixed lens version... price TBA... and it is listed first.. so less than $2500 (yes I realise Brains only)

    and also look at it from the point of view on how it is upgradeable.. those components make it the one system you will just use for ever...

    then as has been mentioned above.. it will be interesting to see how Canon, Nikon and Co. will respond.

    All I see is good coming out of this.

    The prices mentioned are for the 'brains' only.

    Nah I am truly amazed though. These products will revolutionise the FTV industry.
    I'm not in the consumer market. The possibility of not having to buy both still and motion camera gear is exciting (especially for the hip pocket), plus I'll be able to use my existing Canon L glass with the system.

    The movie side of it thrills the pants off me. But as I look @ what it is, I don't see no easy use stills camera. Looks too awkward. But I think an in-the-flesh trial would be called for before dismissing it.
    Is there an Australian supplier for this stuff? Has one been named?

    Based on the look of the image at the end of this link...

    ...certainly seems as good a guess as any. It really DOES look like an expensive Polaroid
    If it can be imagined, their is already porn based on it.

    This is very interesting.

    Probably excite the video guy more than the still shooter
    Large size sensors relative to current HD sensors
    Significant reduction in hardware size and weight and cheaper in cost
    Kodak motion film will probably lose even more business

    From the still photographer point of view
    Equipment lots bigger and less ergonomic from a handholding POV
    On paper the sensor looks promising but how well will it handle low light
    Still expensive compared to current Canon/Nikon pro camera
    Prob still 2-3 years to get right for us

    The guy that owns this business I think also/used to run Oakley and is very keen photographer so there is money/brains behind the technology. Hope it goes well.

    Yeah, I doubt I'll be replacing my Canon SLR's with it in the short term...but for studio and tripod shooting it would be OK - again I can't really comment until I get to use one hands-on.

    LEMAC sell the RED ONE in Australia - Welcome to LEMAC - I'm guessing they'll have the Scarlet and Epic when it's released.

    they've done an apple.

    Been all secretive, made there own more effecient software (REDCODE). And completly turned the industry on its head. (oh and made it really expensive)

    This is good tho, nothing drives innovation like competition.

    Interesting article where a RED camera was used for video but the still grabs were good enough to print on the NY Times magazine.

    Is anybody following Sanctuary, which is being shot for network TV entirely on RED ? It's by the Stargate SG1/Atlantis guys and starring Amanda Tapping.

    fxGuide and the VFX Show aren't covering it, so I guess they are 'the competition'.

    They are shipping up into those serial numbers, but that's not to say that everyone that had a reservation has actually taken supply of their number.

    Many speculators have been holding onto their original reservations because it's likely they will get first dibs on the NEW red models once they ship, and a substantial discount.

    So it's likely that the actual number shipped is far less. (they've been shipping for just on year now BTW.

    I like the RED in many ways (i just finished shooting a film in LA with one) but they also have lot's of shortcomings. I wonder from a stills point of view if they will really compete. Look at the price diffeerence for starters compared to other well established companies.

    In motion pictures however, Im distressed to see they still seem to make the same fundamental mistake with regard to ergonomics. The thing is a pig to hand hold with a very high COG, the lens is above your forehead and it's way to front heavy. All the images seem to point towards the same issues with the new variants.

    They make nice pictures sometimes, if you can hit their sweetspots. I also went through three bodies in 18 days. Nothing major, just annoying little hiccups. Still.....

    Great observations brawlster.
    I think we're still a few (literally a "few") years away from the perfect machine.
    Lots of people are jumping on board now cause RED is offering serious potential. They are making the future products of other companies today. I guess whoever it was that made mp3 players first became the trampoline for Apple's success.
    Whether RED or a Nikon or a Sony take up the challenge is beside the point. One day we'll all be using cross over machines film/ still. And they will be high, high quality.
    Good times ahead.
    And the more resources devoted to giving us a great, manipulatable (??) RAW code, the better.
