I automatically think of printers when I hear the Epson name. Some Epson workers put the gobs of printers available at their company to the most awesome use of work time in history with the creation of a full size 1:1 replica of an Acura/Honda NSX Super GT race car from cardboard and paper.
Gears of War is by far one of the most popular video game titles on the planet. It's a success, in every sense of the word, for Microsoft and Epic Games, with the first two installments amassing millions of copies sold, and some of the most highly rated games to ever get released. And now with the third one about to drop onto shelves (relatively speaking, mind you -- it's not tomorrow, by any means), there's one question on everyone's mind: How's the rookie going to die? Well, turns out that the rookie, also known as Carmine, will have his Fate decided this time around. And by you.
High-end camera manufacturer RED has announced that the "bug" holding up production of their new EPIC and Scarlet cameras has been identified and squashed, though the projects are now several months delayed. Rather than rush production, however, RED founder Jim Jannard is insisting that the company won't release "a buggy camera with limited features"; instead they will continue with their testing program, adding EPIC-X sensors to RED ONE cameras as part of their Tattoo project, and kicking off EPIC production once the feedback is suitably positive.
If you're a fan of iTunes, and you're a student of some major university out there, then you might have skimmed through iTunes U, or iTunes University. It's designed to help students continue their learning with extra materials, visual elements, and other assorted materials based on a particular university. And, within that store, you could find The Open University, and they've just reached a pretty big milestone for the company.
One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.
High-spec camera company RED has admitted that their EPIC and Scarlet models have been significantly delayed by an unspecified bug, that has seen the two cameras held up by at least two months. According to RED founder Jim Jannard, the company has working examples of EPIC and Scarlet but "aren't going to release anything until the cameras are done and bug free"; the fault itself "is unexpected and it has us baffled." Meanwhile, RED are being forced to find a new manufacturer after their existing partner has had "significant issues."
RED knows how to make really, really expensive cameras. But, they can get away with it because those really, really expensive cameras do more than what's probably necessary (even for that price tag). And, even if we know we'd never have a reason to own one of the RED cameras, we can't help but stare at them. Especially pieces of tech like the RED EPIC.
Indecently appealing camera manufacturer RED have announced that would-be buyers of their latest EPIC and Scarlet models will have a chance to see the latest prototypes in mid-February. The event, which will be held in Los Angeles on February 13th, will also see some RED ONEs with Mysterium-X sensors make an appearance.
RED's new Scarlet and Epic modular cameras might not even be on the market yet, but the company has already tweaked pricing, changed specifications and made what could be an even more tempting trade-in offer to owners of their original RED ONE. According to company president Jim Jannard, RED were "were a bit frustrated" with digital signal processing and REDCODE data rates inside the Scarlet and Epic "brains", so they've brought the development process even more in-house and changed the specs.
Esoteric camera makers RED have been teasing their loyal user community for some time now, with the promise of new products and slivers of photos. Scarlet and EPIC are new camera capture and processing brains (we'd say 'bodies' but the RED system is so damn modular) capable of 3K and 5K video, respectively. They both use RED's Mysterium technology, capable of extremely high-definition captures, and can be configured into different types of camera depending on application, budget and personal preference. Bolt two together and you can even film in high-definition 3D.
