  • RED announcement at 9AM Eastern time tomorrow


    There’s a fun and functional countdown over at Red.com that suggests, if I am not mistaken, that the new RED products will be revealed at 9AM tomorrow on the East Coast — 6AM my time, great. Check out our previous teaser posts for the mysterious renders that RED head Jim Jannard has been posting. Read More

  • Another RED tease – ports spied


    Another taste. You may be getting tired of these little peeks, but I think they’re just dandy. Looks like a couple XLR ports (labeled “Push” probably because they’re inset and you can’t reach the release), some video outs and some sort of proprietary connector on the right. I’m wondering whether these pics are from some super-modular system? They… Read More

  • Another piece of the RED puzzle


    What the deuce is it? They’re speculating wildly at the Reduser forum; some think it’s an combination rail/battery/control pack for the Scarlet (it says “Scarlet” around the “eye”), some think it’s not even orientated correctly in the picture and Jannard is playing a joke on them. Others question the material, ports and so on. We won’t know for… 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

  • RED trademarking "Red 3D" RE lenses, projectors, eyeglasses, etc

    Could this be part of the change that Jannard mentioned when he revealed the Epic and Scarlet were getting rebooted? A ScarletUser forum post by one Joseph says: …within the last 24 hours, Red has registered the trademark “Red 3D” with the description of:
    Cameras, camera lenses, projectors, eyeglasses and software, all for use in the recording and playback of 3D images. A… Read More

  • One guy's experience shooting on RED

    You know, to be honest, I could probably get a less fluffy account of shooting on a RED ONE from my friend Mike, who has been shooting on RED for quite a long time now. But he can’t write, and I’m lazy, so in the meantime we have a pretty solid article here that describes the experience of shooting in 4K, the trouble they had, some of the strengths and limitations, and so on. Since… 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 announces DSLR-killer: the DSMC

    It doesn’t have a catchy name yet (Crimson?) but RED is now officially taking aim at Canon, Nikon, and everyone else in the DSLR arena. In a forum post, Jim Jannard announced the Digital Still and Motion Camera, saying it is not a replacement for any RED products but a separate product aimed at doing to still camera makers what RED has done to digital cinema tech — which is to… Read More

  • RED looking to crush the DSLR market?

    Looks like it, according to CEO Jimbo. What RED does is a little over my head, but I know they do some crazy RAW compression and shoot in 5K, Epic, or something ridiculous like that. It’s superduberjuber high definition. Check out Jimbo’s little message to the RED forums and let your mind drift into some dream world where this news will make you happy. Down there like it does… Read More

  • Wired finally goes all out on the RED


    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… 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

  • T-Mo drops the Curve in "Sunset"

    To you and me, this is red. To T-Mobile this is “sunset.” Regardless, everyone’s favorite BlackBerry and the one I recommend the most when folks ask me which BB to get is now in bright, shiny red. Standard goodies: HotSpot@Home, Wi-Fi, 2 megapixel camera, redness. $149 with two year contract. Read More

  • Rumor: RED iPhone on the way for the holidays?

    The rumor of a (RED) iPhone 3G has been coming and going since for a while now – before the phone had even been made official, even. The rumor died for a while after launch, but alas – it’s back. According to the guys over at MacBlogz, a red-backed iPhone may be in the works as an easy/cost-effective product revamp for the holiday season. Seeing as Apple’s had a… Read More

  • Red iPhone for XMas?

    Rumors have been propagating through several popular Mac blogs that Apple will be releasing a red iPhone 3G model for the holiday season. The release will be well-timed, considering the initial iPhone hype will start to slow, and people will be opening up their wallets more for the holiday season. (Photo via MacBlogz) The red iPhone will presumably be sold as part of the (PRODUCT) RED… Read More

  • 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

  • Japanese scienticians develop 4k sensor for ultra-hi-def TV

    We’ve discussed the Red One camera and its counterparts before, and the 4K ultra-hi-def cinema they represent, but now Japan’s getting in on the action. NHK’s Science and Technical Research Laboratories has come up with a 7,680×4,320 pixel sensor that it plans to use for future digital cinema shooting. The 16:9 cameras would have enough resolution for movie theaters or… Read More

  • Red Zune 80 trickling into retail stores

    Something called the Microsoft Zune 80 (wasn’t that an ABA team, the New Orleans Zune?) was released in the color red a few months ago, but you had to purchase it from the Zune Originals online store, which added tacky artwork to the backside. Seems now, however, you’ll be able to find it in normal retail stores. Still $250. via Zune Insider Read More

  • "Stained," the first award-winning film to be shot in 4K on a Red One camera

    I’ve got a friend working on a few things with his Red One that will probably win a few awards as well (hey man lets hang out btw), but this film, made for a 168-hour film contest, is apparently quite good. It’s about “a merciless society that segregates its undesirables” — in other words, America — and I understand it is very well-done, having won about… 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
