OK... you talked me into it.

Scarlet will be a surprise, no matter what you thought.
It will not be a shirt pocket camera.
It will look different than you imagined.
It will be all metal, no plastic.
We will not take reservations for it... it will not be for sale at the show.
It will weigh more than any pocket consumer camera.
It will record REDCODE RAW (duh).

Hope that helps.

jim



hmmmm... I guess that will end all speculations :D

How does Jim know what I imagine? He's got some Red ESP.

Why do you think their tent is a leaded curtain? ;) - Not made in China though.

RED ESP is the new auto focus feature for the RED ONE and the Scarlet. It reads the minds of the talent and the camera crew. Then it determines the correct focus.

It's all speculation right now, but boy is this going to be exciting!

It's going to be amazing, though the dumber the talent the worse the ESP function gets. ** Feature not available for teen comedies.

Red ESP is Jannard's version of a record-ahead cache, except that it was engineered by Uri Geller.

I find the Red 'bend spoon' function useful too.

Who knows? With all of these new features, RED may be able to create RED "Puppet Master" combined with RED "ESP" which will allow the camera to read the directors mind and see how he wants the actor to act and then make the actor do it subconsciously. All I can say is I am expecting big things.

Jannard - Scarlet will be "Less than 10K for sure"
http://www.reduser.net/forum/showpost.php?p=195141&postcount=115

I know most speculated that it would be (given that he's said repeatedly that it won't compete with the RED One - but this is the first solid thing I've heard said on price.

I can't wait. Most exciting product announcement ever. This can make all the other announcement worthless. Now that would be awesome. They could also disappoint us, but I highly doubt it, because when the expectations are too high, they would have interfered with some confirmations earlier in the process (a good manager would).

At what time will it be announced (GMT+1 for Amsterdam)?

Remember, in accordance with Jim's own words:

It will not be a shirt pocket camera.


Sad news but that's what we can count.

Should I get the RED Scarlet or the HPX170??? Do you think I should just buy an old 35mm camera instead? Which is better for shooting skate footy? What about music videos like that Bjork one with the dragon in that box thing?

I can guess, having only worked with one of them, who has the bigger ego and delights in publicly crushing people for little or no reason. And no, Larry Ellison isn't in the running.

Kidneys are so over rated...why would you need 2 anyway...just sell one on ebay.

I am hoping for

35mm sensor, even shooting at 1k res, with removable lens mount, 50/60hz switchable, CMOS. Priced at $10k.

rawfa
04-14-2008, 08:43 AM
I think it was already stated that it would be under 10k "for sure". I would want removable mount but I really doubt it.

Emanuel
04-14-2008, 08:49 AM
I would want removable mount but I really doubt it.I wouldn't doubt it, Rafa. Remember, Jim will have some prime sets for sale in a few upcoming months...

04-14-2008, 08:50 AM
$9k for b4 relay lens + 35 adapter in order to get that 35mm DOF is just ridiculous to me. Thats why i hope Scarlet will solve that problem. Plus 35mm adapter is very cumbersome.

Add the 35mm belief that too. Or some wider glass with 2K coverage to be added to the 35mm range bundled into there, as fair alternative.
