Attendees of the RED Release Party Sound Off On Why They Love Scarlet
By now you’re probably familiar with the the initial reactions to the release of the RED Scarlet. Although Canon left most people feeling a bit unfulfilled with the release of their C300, C300PL and the other camera with no name, most people were in agreement that the Scarlet is as ground breaking in features as it is in price. Rod Clark of HDSLRShooter had an opportunity to visit with attendees of Scarlet’s coming out party. Here’s what he had to say about the event and the Scarlet:
“Jim Jannard navigated the technical difficulties with class. As he began the presentation the wireless microphone began cutting out intermittently, so he ditched the mic and addressed the crowd directly.” The features were great, but it was the price that caused a physical reaction to the crowd. Rod continues, “There was a collective gasp when they announced the $9750 price. A 4K camera, that shoots REDCODE RAW, with a Mysterium-X sensor, and ships this month for under ten grand??” Check out Rod’s video for more from the event that stole Canon’s thunder.

I got this via email from the guys over at Teradek. I had the chance to test out the Teradek Cube while reporting for The Guardian at CES. We used it for a live feed from the showroom floor. It was a harrowing experience to say the least. This video shows off the F-Stop Aerial Media helicopter more than the wireless transmitter. The delay is still a bit of an issue but the wow factor is still there. Transmitting to an iPhone or iPad will be the next step in wireless technology. I am just trying to figure out why Rob the helicopter pilot is wearing flip flops.
The on board camera is a Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm Zoom Lens. The killer helicopter is a T-Rex 700E with a Photoship One pan and tilt head. According to Rod Clark from Teradek. This is a highly modified version built by F-Stop Aerial Media.
