Red Unveils The Scarlet 3K Pocket Professional: $3000?

Wow. I mean WOW! Red has just let the world look under the hood of their brand spankin' new Scarlet 3K Pocket Professional camera and the specs look awesome:

  • NEW 2/3" MYSTERIUM X SENSOR
  • 1-120 FPS (180FPS BURST)
  • UP TO 100 MB/SEC REDCODE RAW AND RGB RECORDING TO DUAL COMPACT FLASH
  • 4.8" LCD
  • 8X T2.8 RED ZOOM LENS
  • FULL AUTO OR FULL MANUAL SHOOTING MODES
  • HDMI and HD-SDI
  • FIREWIRE 800 and USB2
  • STILL MODE
  • COMPATIBLE WITH MANY RED ONE ACCESSORIES
  • WI-FI CONTROL
Here is the kicker folks: All of this for around $3000. It is slated for a 2009 release (maybe CES) and do you think thats all the fine folks that brought us the Red One 4K did at NAB? Nope, check this out:

The RED 5K Epic! Yes, you read right 5K resolution. You can even trade in your little ol' Red One 4K if you have a problem with not having the best resolution around - they will give you a full $17,500 credit toward the purchase of the Epic:
  • FULL FRAME S35MM NEW MYSTERIUM X SENSOR
  • 1-100 FPS
  • UP TO 100 MB/SEC. REDCODE RAW AND RGB RECORDING TO REDFLASH
  • FULL SIZE DUAL LINK HD-SDI, 2-XLR AUDIO INPUTS AND HDMI
  • WI-FI CONTROL
  • FIREWIRE 800 and USB2
  • 6 POUND FULLY MACHINED ALUMINUM BODY WITH HYBRID STAINLESS PL MOUNT
  • COMPATIBLE WITH MOST RED ONE ACCESSORIES
  • FULLY UPGRADABLE SENSOR, BODY, BOARDS AND MOUNT.
They also brought in the Red Ray drive:
  • PLAYS 4K, 2K, 1080P, 720P AND SD FROM RED DISC AND RED EXPRESS
  • ALSO PLAYS NATIVE RAW R3D FILES FROM COMPACT FLASH
I am pretty much in awe in what this company is pulling off here. As you know from my earlier posts, the RED One has already been used in 3D configuration! If you would like to see how all of these cameras line up vs. your 1080p HDTV, check out this comparison chart:


Awesome isn't it? Can't believe the prices. More on NAB 2008 soon - stick with MarketSaw for all your NAB updates!!
