RED SCARLET - A High Definition Digital Camera

A little over a year ago, the video world was taken by storm by RED ONE, a revolutionary high definition digital camera. It was rumored to have an 11.4 MP chip with no noise issues or artifacts, and could shoot up to 60fps.

Some thought it was vapor ware until director Peter Jackson shot “Crossing the Line,” a short film on World War I, with it with stunning results for an $18,000 price tag. And in that short period of time, everyone wants one. Then, a few months back, we reported on a rumored consumer version called RED SCARLET, which would allow consumers to have RED quality HD at a consumer price. Today, Scarlet was introduced as reality.

The so-called “pocket professional” camera has a resolution higher than 1080 at 3,000 and is processed using a new 2/3-inch Mysterium X chip, and can shoot from 1 to 120 FPS and record to dual Compact Flash cards for up to 100MB per second of REDCODE RAW HD video.

It also sports an 8x RED zoom lens and 4.5 inch LCD screen. In addition Scarlet has HMDI, HD-SDI, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 inputs and can use many of RED ONE’s accessories. What’s really sweet, however, is that it also comes with WiFi control. Scarlet is scheduled for a 2009 release and should run around $3,000.
