This was in answer to a question about OIS on the Scarlet Fixed 8x zoom. I had forgotten that RED did foresee use of those motion sensors (feature 22) for stabilization. Of course it will be limited by the motion blur in the individual frames. At some point the stabilized footage will have blur that becomes counterintuitive. But Jarred made it sound so easy in post, it could be very useful and convenient.Your correct. No Optical image stabilization, but instead a hybrid stabilization using the sensors in the camera for movement and then shifting the window.. its all metadata so the stabilization correction can be applied, or discarded.
Someone asked me about the fixed focal length in 2/3" broadcast terms... it is F2.4 7.5mm - 58mm. Constant aperture throughout the zoom range.
Is this still planned and will it be done by RED or a third party?
Do other RED cameras have the motion sensors, or is it only a Scarlet Fixed feature?
