See Rick Young’s (Mac Video.tv) interview of RED’s Ted Schilowitz presenting the new Epic camera while at NAB 2010 here. It’s small and allows for a great 5K video on a reconfigurable body with interchangeable lenses and a high-end remote control. A bit expensive for the general video guy at $28,000, it is certainly a great option for big film companies transitioning to digital filmmaking.I’ve been observing RED since their inception just a few years ago, and while their start was questioned by many, it seems that they have a growing foothold in the film industry. It will be good to ultimately work with something on this level in producing great film for the big screen.
