First Look: Red Scarlet-X Camera

Wired
16 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Can’t wait to see The Hobbit ? Try shooting your own Middle-earth adventure. The Scarlet is a slightly simplified version of the rigs Peter Jackson used to film his Lord of the Rings prequel. Its Super 35 image sensor and 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels) capture four times the detail of typical HD, making top-of-the-line DSLR footage look like an ’80s home movie.
  • Pros: Takes indie film projects to Lucasfilm levels. 5120 x 2700 resolution for stills (even in 12-fps burst mode).
  • Cons: Can’t shoot 4K video at more than 30 fps. Precise controls for pros = steep learning curve for amateurs.
