RED Digital Cinema at NAB 2006

When I first arrived at the Convention Center, one of the first things I had on my list to check out was the Red camera system. Until now, this camera had only been spoken of in myth in the online forums much like someone who had claimed to have seen a UFO or Bigfoot. An affordable Ultra High Definition Camera that could produce 4K images and could utilize Prime Lenses, this would be an evolutionary jump indeed! Well, this was the moment of truth. I was finally going to see it. It was as if someone had said to me "around the next corner, you will see the only captive Unicorn in the history of earth." I must admit that my breath was surely taken from me as I entered the RED tent and was a little confused as to what I was looking at.

There is a definite paradigm shift going on here. These RED Cinema guys have redefined what a camera is supposed to look like. My first impression was "Wow, wasn't that the gun the character Ripley used in the movie Aliens?" It was like no other camera I had evern seen before complete with a finish that was completely unexpected. In the pictures that are posted here, you see a sleek metal finish. The models on the show room floor had a weathered rust finish and appeared to have been sent back through time for some ambiguous purpose. As I got over the initial shock of the appearance of the unit, I dug into the specs and this device's purpose became clear to me. It came from the future to destroy all cameras that came before it!

These models were still behind glass and we didn't have the chance to use one yet, but keep your eyes on the GeniusDV website for the latest news and developments with this camera!
