I have to say, the Wired I used to love would have covered the RED camera about two years ago when it was all buzz, phantom tech, and prototype sensors, and not now when it is essentially an established cinematic tool limited only by the small amount yet manufactured. At any rate, they’ve written a pretty comprehensive long-format history of the RED from birth to current success, and it’s worth reading whether you’re a RED head or not. It’s a bit gee-whiz and they gloss over many of the issues the RED has had (buggy drivers, supply problems), its limitations (e.g. framerate), and the actual cost of outfitting oneself with one of these amazing cameras. Still, it’s worth a read and it’s good to see my favorite camera getting this kind of mainstream attention.
