    EU court rules ISPs can’t be forced to filter out illegal content

    The European Court of Justice this morning ruled that content owners can not strong-arm Internet service providers (ISPs) into filtering out copyright-infringing content. This case has its origin in a dispute between ISP Scarlet and SABAM, a Belgian management company responsible for authorizing the use by third parties of the musical works of authors, composers and editors. In 2004, the… Read More

    5 seriously overhyped digital cameras


    Although I’m a big fan of the Casio EX-F1 and wrote at length last week on how major the RED announcement was, I can’t disagree with this list. The D90 hasn’t lived up to its hype, the 1D Mk III does have serious problems, the Scarlet is simply not viable as a DSLR, and the EX-F1 is a one-trick pony. This isn’t to say that these cameras are weak — on the… Read More

    My God, it's full of K's! What the RED announcement means for the industry


    Image credit: Benni Diez at Reduser.net forums For the last couple weeks, Jim Jannard of RED Camera has been teasing everybody on the REDuser forums with vague promises and outrageous claims of revolutionizing the industry. Skepticism would be the natural response, but after the original RED One camera turned the industry on its head in 2007, people learned that the company said what they… Read More

    Enticing teaser renders of RED's newest creation


    Oh my… I don’t know what it is at all! The big RED announcement is in two weeks and Jannard got a little too excited and posted some mysterious renders. He also says, in the same ebullient tone as last week: I am now comfortable in saying that the most aggressive speculation will not come close to what we will announce Nov. 13th. We fully expect over 1,000,000 hits on… Read More

    New REDs coming Nov 13th: "No one has any idea how incredible this announcement will be"

    Call it hype or call it confidence, but RED has lived up to the hype and they’ve got a lot to be confident about. Here’s what RED Head Jim Jannard said in a recent Reduser forum post: “We will announce the new Scarlet and Epic programs on Thursday Nov. 13th. I want to say that no one has any idea how incredible this announcement will be. Call this hype… please. I am… Read More

    Scarlet and RED Epic getting total reboot


    What the hell?! I think Jim Jannard took some peyote at Photokina and brought his laptop. He’s posted on the forums saying everything’s going pineapples for Scarlet and RED Epic. We have changed everything about Scarlet because the market has changed and we have discovered a lot of things in the process. We have a new vision.
    Wipe you minds of the past announced Scarlet. Forget… Read More

    RED files infringement lawsuit against LG for "Scarlet" usage


    When I heard about LG’s “Scarlet” line of HDTVs and its misleading ad campaign, the first thing I thought of was the real Scarlet and then “Is RED going to sue these mothers or what?” And so, four months later, they have. A post at the RED forums by Jim Jannard reveals that the legal gears are turning in Orange County and they’re going to be doing a little… Read More

  • Hot new render of RED's Scarlet!

    Hot new render of RED's Scarlet!


    So pretty. So chunky. And it’ll fit in the palm of your hand. That’s the lens on the left, where the focus ring will be; the cutaway right at right is either aperture or zoom, most likely aperture since it looks notched. It’s also possible it could be a multi-use wheel. Jannard says in the forum that there are still some surprises left (he cites “competition”… Read More

  • Video: Scarlet is TVs, not TV

    Perhaps you’ve seen the commercials for Scarlet, the hit new TV series on TV. Perhaps you were wondering why the commercials don’t tell you what channel it’s on or even when, or what it’s about. Perhaps you thought to yourself it’s part of some viral-style marketing campaign, and you’d be right. But it’s not for a TV show, but a line of HDTVs from LG. Read More

    What's 5K anyway? RED Cameras resolution comparison chart


    So maybe you’re excited about Red’s sudden announcement of two new cameras earlier today (the 5K Epic and the 3K Scarlet) but you’re not really sure why. What are these “K”s everyone is talking about, and why would anyone care whether they had two, three, or a hundred? Well, Red’s handy chart above should clear things up for you. You can see how basically… Read More

    Red's Scarlet makes her debut

    We’ve been hearing whispers about Scarlet for a few months now, and today she’s made her first appearance. Scarlet is the code name of Red’s “professional pocket camera”, and that’s all we’ve known about it until today. Now, however, we know that it’s a fairly small digital still and video camera that can shoot up to 3k resolution, which is… Read More
