Multimedia, AV In true uber-hype fashion, the RED Company announced today a series of cameras and imaging sensors that will revolutionize the movie (and still image) industry. Some commenters online jokingly said that this is where all the Roswell UFO reverse-engineering went into. RED announced sensors ranging from 10.1x5.35mm (2/3") size all the way to 186x56mm, and resolutions from 3k/120fps to 28k/25fps (that's 261 megapixels). If you have trouble visualizing that size, here's an image that might help. To add to all this, the RED Epic now supports stereoscopic (3D) capturing.

It's aggresive marketing. Those guys have already made several overpriced shitty cameras, and sold them by paying Peter Jackson and Soderberg to use them (it's good, Peter Jackson used it!), so it's not strange that they make it to OSNews.

Although this system is in some sense the way to go in digital imaging, well, RED is like Apple*10^128973 in terms of selling coolness instead of a good product.

By the way, this is my first comment here, hello everybody.
