red.gifAs has been the case at the last couple NAB shows, one of the most popular destinations of the show floor was the Red Camera booth. More accurate would be the Red Camera tent With twice the resolution as most HD cameras, at half the cost it is not hard to see why everyone wants to find out more about the Red Camera. Creating anticipation and curiosity that reminds me of Walt Disney's promotion of Disneyland in the early 50's. I over heard may attendees discussing the benefits of implementing the Red Camera into there productions. . .  I know I am!

As of right now the best supported editing platform for the Red Camera is Final Cut Pro. Using integration with Red Camera software, Final Cut Pro is the way to edit the Red Camera footage. Final Cut Pro can compress the 4K image to 2K, but even @ half resolution, it is higher than Hi Def. Apple Color will bring the 4K images in without compressing them allowing you to work with them at full resolution.

Red Camera had a number of it's products on display, but many will not be available until early 2009. To learn more about what Red Camera is doing check them out at red.com. Be sure you view the myth buster video.

If you were waiting for the new JVC cameras to come down in price then the wait is over. Not only can you now get the GY-HD200U for $5,995 but it now includes the Anton-Bauer Trimpac battery/charger system at no additional cost. If you have a limited budget then the Gy-HD110U might be the right choice for you. It now has a new retail price of only $4995 and includes and extra long life JVC battery at no extra charge. The HD200U is truly the best value of the two choices. Not only do you add 60p recording but he Anton-Bauer package it worth the additional cost. If you decide to go with the GY-HD200U you will also get these additional features:
  • 14-bit A/D(greatly improves HSL)
  • High Speed Encoder for 50 and 60p recording, great for true slow motion
  • Pro Anton/Bauer batter mount, much better balance
  • Cross converter outputs 1080i live
  • Image inversion for prime lenses
  • 6-pin remote control connector

  Both cameras are a perfect match for editing with Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer / Xpress Pro. The wait is over for both of these highly proven cameras and now is the time to take advantage of the new pricing!
