Red Scarlet – Almost Here

My new camera looks like it’s almost ready to ship. Yes, a working version of the Scarlet is being tossed around Expos and it looks insanely bad ass.

It shoots up to 120 frames a second with its variable frame rate and can shoot into 160-180 frames a second in bursts apparently. Wireless control setup, 3k images…ugh..what a monster. In the video Ted outlines how you can remove the side port and mount another Scarlet off of it for Stereoscopic 3D imaging. Good Grief!

Needless to say I cant wait to get my hands on this thing. lol..

No release date yet, but with a working model it looks like they are pretty close. They just released the RED “EPIC” so the Scarlet is next.

  1. Joe will be pleased.

  2. I swear Tim, if you do not get out of my head, I will have to do a drive by in your court, look at your house and leave. HAHAHHAHAhAHAHAHAHHA. It’s funny you say this, I texted Mike before I read this asking him if he was close to getting it.

  3. Too funny Joe…I just knew you would be salivating over this.

    I have heard that Reds are prone to overheating and breaking down is that true Mike?

  4. I have heard they overheat, and you have to let them cool before shooting with it again. I don’t know to the extent or duration you can use them before they start overheating.

    As far as breaking down, I don’t know. It’s all bleeding edge tech, so I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I don’t know if this is more to do with the first wave of Reds, or if it’s something that is still going on now that they have had these cameras out for 4 years now.

    I would expect the first releases would be filled with issues, but as they refined them, I would assume they had fixed a lot of issues with them on later models.

    Since these cameras are module based and can interchange tech, I would assume the Epic and Scarlet would have benefited from the Red One R&D as well.

    These are assumptions though. Either way, for the price of the Scarlet it will be worth any quirks it might have….knock on wood.
