Ever used a Ferrari Enzo? If not, they can't exist either right?
See, stupid argument.
http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=94344 Please tell us that PJ must be smoking something, 'cause he apparently has shot on Red, in all it's 4k glory. Oh yeah, and everyone at NAB that saw the result too.

I think Bennis just backhanded someone in the face. Lmfao. Everyone wants to call it Vaporware, nobody wants to do their research and stay up on it.
That being said, when did POCKET CAM qualify as PROSUMER CAM you guys? I know, trust me: I would love to see a mini-RED that shoots 2k and has interchangable lenses.
In fact, I would love to have a red that shoots 1080p/60p (Variable framerates) and has interchangable mounts and lenses. But, doesn't sound like it's going to be more than an actual pocket camera. One that you take out and snap pictures with.

Actually I own a Ferrari -- see, stupid argument.
Don't get me wrong. I'd love to have one of these too and as soon as they work and begin shipping them, I will.Cap'n Jolly Daryl Barbossa

They will begin shipping within the next six weeks. Orders 1 - 12. Tsk. There shouldn't be any arguement about it, sounds like someone just wants to remain a skeptic for the hell of it.

With those that ordered last not getting their cameras for another several months. So answer me this: If you buy a Red camera today, when will you actually be shooting it? I'm looking for an honest, accurate, no bs, no guess, no "hopefully", answer.

Please do not assume that because you wouldn't shoot with it immediately, nobody else would. RED ONE is not intended for those whom can't afford to use it.
If Peter Jackson put it to use BEFORE it even hit shelves, wtf do you think other professional filmmakers are going to do? Seriously, sometimes people surprise me. I mean at one point even I asked "How will you edit it?"... then Apple slapped me in the face with official RED SUPPORT. There's nothing anyone can say about RED at this point until the footage sucks; which it's pretty apparent from those at NAB that this is far from the case. Call it a done deal.
How the HELL can you even begin to call this Vaporware with a company like Apple backing it on their official website.
Edit: sorry to sound so crass, but come on people. What's all the negativity surrounding the camera about now? It's here, it's for real, it's supported. And it's already been put to narrative use before it's officially shipped.

As soon as NAB is over those Red guys are just going to take all the preorder money and skip town!

A pro pocket camera doesn't sound like something with Interchangeable lenses.
I like the idea of a little unit i can keep out of sight that shoots the kind of quality Red would put their name too.
Now if they can make a solid/waterproof/shockproof go anywhere device I'd buy one.
Red like to revolutionize and I think what's missing from the market is a pocket camera without the usual compromises of auto control or dodgy formats.
Something that you can take to Iraq and will take a bullet for you and keep on recording (n.b. I don't go to warzones but our local pub is pretty rowdy)I don't think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can't kiss a movie.

So at this point, we have absolutely no idea what it actually is.
Whatever it is, Iīm already wondering about itīs price.
Red is 17.500 just for the body.
Pocket-Camera: 15.000 for the complete package? They said, itīs "not prosumer", so ...
At this point, they probably donīt know themselves.
The tension is killing me! ;-)

Peter Jackson and Apple, that's just super.
I'm still waiting for someone to answer my question. If I purchase a Red camera today, when will it ship to me? I think that's a very fair question to ask. Why doesn't anyone answer? Is it because they are ashamed to admit that its poor business practice to highly promote a product that's months away from delivery? Are they ashamed to admit they have been hyping their product for a year and a half, and took orders for it over a year ago, and still haven't delivered a single unit?
It isn't that I don't think the camera(s) will ever be built, I just think it's bogus to advertise and promote it without giving more firm commitment on when they'll ship. This type of hype has happened many times in the past, especially at NAB, but Red takes the cake. This camera and it's numbers have been spouted for about a year and a half now. They debuted their concept and took orders for Red at NAB 2006 for Christ's sakes! One full year ago! And now, we finally have what appers to be a couple of working units, but no firm answer to when exactly a unit purchased today will ship.
With their track record, my guess is that this new prosumer handycam will ship probably in 2009 or maybe 2010. Why don't they start advertising and taking orders for their 70mm sized chip 16k, 20 stop camera they might maybe someday build? After all, my guess is that several people would plunk down the money for it sight unseen.
Yes, I'm playing devil's advocate, but all the same, I think I bring up valid points. I am not questioning their product, I'm criticizing their sales hype and business ethic, and more so, the people that drool over themselves about the product while ignoring this fly-by-night sales tactic.
