The image quality of Scarlet will no doubt surpass the other 5k cameras out there. For those of us who love to write, direct, shoot and light - this camera will be an affordable one with a range of features and frame rates to make some beautiful moments realized.
Thank you Red team for finding a way to get that quality to us broke artists. :love:

Regardless of the precise accuracy of the prophecy, I absolutely agree with the impulse and the deference to 2046 as an agonizingly brilliant piece of filmmaking.

5k cameras

What?

Scarlet is a 5K camera?!

Oh, good. Cause I was like hoping for ~2K.

5K= $5,000 dollars... easy to mix up. :-)

Oh wait, I bet you were kidding... with the clown thing. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Andrew, I'm not sure which 5K we're talking about either but that clown thing is one of the android's from Wong Kar Wai's 2046 - one of the loveliest (to say the least) films of the last decade.

Sorry for the confusion... I thought karapetkov was making a joke with a double meaning (K for cash not resolution... I need more coffee ;-).. but I did not infer any reference to 2046 or the android character... sometimes a clown is just a :clown2: .

So, for my punishment here is a link to a package on the incredible Chris Doyle (this was first referred to us by Tom)(Not a Rickroll or other bs)

Here is a link to a six part interview with Wong Kar-wai... (this is only the first one but the others are there linked in the window on the right)

Excuse the mix up... but enjoy the links.

Have a good weekend David.

It still boggles me that everyone thinks Scarlet is an HVX/EX1 killer.

Andrew,

No confusion and many thanks for the links. I just last night saw at the Landmark in West Los Angeles (I can't remember your location) My Blueberry Nights. I have the DVD but wanted to see it in it's full glory.

Admittedly not the best picture of a director that has made many a stunning contribution in the recent past, it is still hugely interesting to me to see even a possibly not-as-good effort from this man. Very interesting as well to see the collaboration with Darius Khondji as opposed to Chris Doyle. I want to check to see if the art-direction is under new management as well (a craft which plays such an important part in these movies.)

Thanks again and you have a good week-end as well.

(I guess this is off topic but I'm not entirely sure what the topic was to begin with.)

I`m sure Red team will surpass HVX200 with Scarlet - otherwise why compete? Why not below the $5,000.00 HVX price? The business.
Comparing Red One at the specs that it has, versus the other cams with "similar" specs, and the price margin to the of other cams in its class - that alone IMHO would indicate that Red team will make Scarlet a very special camera with special features and a beautiful picture.
By the way I love the HVX200 - but 2k res for Scarlet - thats what we seen on the big screen past the projector lens. Scarlet indeed will be special.

People seem to want these cameras dead.

To my knowledge, Jim has only said 'Pocket, professional'. Can someone point to where he said Scarlet will sell more than Red?

Lol, that would be hilarious if Scarlet is a tiny 1k pocket camera that was only good for location scouting and good looking home videos

Search and ye shall receive....


The "believers" have put up with a lot... from delays to beta cameras. It is only fair they get a 1st crack. Although we do expect to sell a lot more Scarlets so production will be high from the beginning. And "she" will be completely finished before one leaves the door.

These class of cameras may give you a decent pic but the files they produce are hard to edit with.
