Very well done for someone who really isn't a videographer. But the real star here is the quality of this video. Remember that this is not manipulated in any way except that it is resized down to 1/4 of the original size. Also see the behind the scenes video of how it was made. Very exciting stuff. It really does make that $2700 price point very compelling.
I am going to try to keep this from becoming photography and videography day on adeepblue, but you got to check out this article on wired about the Red Cameras. From the article:
It's more than that: His team of engineers and scientists have created the first digital movie camera that matches the detail and richness of analog film. The Red One records motion in a whopping 4,096 lines of horizontal resolution?"4K" in filmmaker lingo?and 2,304 of vertical. For comparison, hi-def digital movies like Sin City and the Star Wars prequels top out at 1,920 by 1,080, just like your HDTV. (There's also a slightly higher-resolution option called 2K that reaches 2,048 lines by 1,080.) Film doesn't have pixels, but the industry-standard 35-millimeter stock has a visual resolution roughly equivalent to 4K. And that's what makes the Red so exciting: It delivers all the dazzle of analog, but it's easier to use and cheaper?by orders of magnitude?than a film camera. In other words, Jannard's creation threatens to make 35-mm movie film obsolete.
A Red camera was used to shoot the video that I linked to a couple of days back with the slow motion skateboarders. This is pretty cool for the future of video, not to mention the much more casual videographer.
