    The new Mini won't exactly be too Mini, but it will remain in the same ecosystem and all that.

    As for RED Monstro 8K VV, it's currently the "premiere digital cinema camera" (perhaps my POV, but pretty much a pretty common one) that you can actually purchase in this industry in terms of image quality, format size, and resolution. If you are getting into the RED ecosystem there is indeed an upgrade path to whatever is next, so take that into account.

    Personally under every light condition it is better on all fronts.
    I wouldn't count out Gemini...



    Gemini FF 6K would be a cool choice.

    I keep assuming RED will make an 8K Gemini (which I playfully call "Galacto").

    That would be a 48mm wide sensor.

    Of course, that can be a solution.
    But for now Monstro is an excellent sensor, better than everything else, especially in colorimetry in addition is an FF or s35 in the same camera.
    Maybe the next update will become dual iso and with integrated Nd, or John come up with a perfect solution with Revolva on FF without vignetting.
    The next dmsc3 camera body should have this + the ability to have lcd + bomb and video transmitter usable simultaneously and maybe an option prores 4k 4444 when not using the raw R3d.

    I am thinking out loud about what I would like ;)

    Pricing will be around $10K more than a Mini.

    The new viewfinder is meant to be excellent.

    Absolutely agree with Sergio, 100%. Love my MONSTROs for every application possible. Of course tech is always changing/improving, but certain purchases stay strong through the years. I would definitely include MONSTRO on that list of long-term worthwhile purchases. Clean image consistently, 8K (obviously future-proof), and full-frame. It's the only RED I've ever been in love with. Now if they can just get the thing to boot up quickly, I'd have no complaints.

    I am guessing the Mini LF will still draw some crazy amount of power like the current LF? Gunna make it difficult to keep it small if it needs two v-mounts to boot up.

    The power draw should be significantly less the full size LF.

    The body is only slightly larger than the current Mini.

    Official announcement should be around March 28th.
