We just started testing the new RED camera.
It is a work of art and a work of genius.
A new era in imaging is dawning. We’re thrilled to be part of it.

Okay, I guess if that’s what you want to think. The truth is that images from the Red camera, just don’t look good.
You should probably substantiate your opinion, if you’re going to go to the trouble of initiating it.
RED is currently being used on many feature films and has received accolades from Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) and Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Traffic), David Mullen (Astronaut Farmer), and Timur Bekmambetov (whose forthcoming film “Wanted” was partly shot with a RED).
You can also look at some RED images at our local stock footage library MammothHD: http://www.mammothhd.com/MHD_RED1.html
…not so shabby…
Mostly, it’s not the camera, it’s the shooter, that makes the images look good or bad, anyway.
We can already squeeze good-looking 1080i/30p/24p images out of our comparatively inexpensive set of Canon XH A1 cameras, and many of our jobs will still be shot with these.
But this camera gives us more flexibility, more latitude, and more dynamic range, than almost any other camera on the planet, and that’s what we are most excited about. All in beautiful 35mm cine quality images.
In addition, this camera will push the envelope for better delivery systems…which is actually more important, in my opinion, than better acquisition systems.
