I have modeled a shape of the Scarlet! In the moment its a bit clumpsy and rough!! Very similar shape of the Red One! :). Gonna work on that! Does anyone have a tip, or suggestion about the design? Just for fun!

Pull out rails (or lens support) from the bottom to support len?

Maybe an evf view finder, something that can tilt up straight from the back. and a possible top handle too.

I really would like it if the EVF and LCD were options. Only buy what you need on a regular basis; only attach what you need right then.

(Handles, too.)

It's all about being modular, right? Plus, flip out LCDs are always on one side of the camera. If it's separate, you could put it anywhere. Side, top, 5 feet away, etc...

Plus, maybe the RED ONE's LCD could be used with Scarlet; that makes production easier for them (economy of scale, and all that...).

So, can you render a RED LCD attached to one of those dandy little articulated arms?

Yeah, you right! Just like the Red One you should have the freedom of being modular with the Scarlet too. So Ive placed a handle in front of the top handle, maybe from that you could attach the EVF or something?.

Maybe so. But this is my vision of the upcoming camera.Im maybe far from the right thing so if you like you could make a suggestion, that would make it more like "your" vision Scarlet. :=)

It's funny - every time you make a change it looks more and more like the Red One!

Here's one of the best "Pocket Cams" ever made: The Braun Nizo 801 Super8

Red should have a look at some of the design features. Fold in Pistol Grip that contains Batteries being the one I like the best...

I like it! When does it go on sale? What is your delivery schedule? Is it Pl or Canon or Nikon Mount?

Ah I see. The indicators must measure shift and rise on the lens. Well if they can ever turn it into a movie camera it will at least come with it's own low mode cage for Steadicam work. lol

Your vision of Scarlet is just how I am picturing it as well. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

It would be so cool if it looked like an old Super8 camera.

01-10-2008, 05:27 PM
I don't really care about the shape...

I'm already happy with the name.. ha!

I think it could be look like this

Keep the images coming guys

Hey Zerrax, I like the Iconix size and shape. All cop cars should have them. That would make watching "World's Most Shocking Police Videos" on Spike TV so much better.
Scarlet will be a pocket cam, not a pole or dashboard cam. That Iconix has a neat remote, but no LCD, mic, or light. I want a total package.

I still like the hack jobs that people did with iSights and Mac minis. I wish Apple would make a 720p iSight and a laptop that could burn blu-ray disks. Instead Apple made the MacBook Air that no one wants. :angry02:
