Big, big camera technology news

Small, relatively inexpensive, lightweight ‘prosumer’ cameras like the Sony PD150 and Panasonic DVX series brought a sea change to the world of film and television production.    They made it possible for one person to shoot and maneuver without attracting much attention in situations normally requiring a crew and a lot of equipment.

The RED One camera was a game changer for the film industry for somewhat different reasons — it makes an astonishing amount of firepower and a gorgeous image available for less than what it would otherwise cost (still very expensive by most standards).   Production types like us have been salivating over the idea of these two trends overlapping to create a lightweight, inexpensive prosumer RED camera.    It seems that day has finally arrived with the advent of the RED Scarlet.   TechCrunch has a review here.
