RED EPIC bug squashed; Scarlet should launch by end of year

RED EPIC bug squashed; Scarlet should launch by end of year

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.

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

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.

RED admit “bug” in EPIC and Scarlet cameras, plus manufacturing hold-up

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’s EPIC Gets Shown Off at NAB

RED’s EPIC Gets Shown Off at NAB

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.

RED Scarlet & Epic cameras get spec tweak; new bundle announced

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.

Strange ad depicts widescreen Nintendo DS

Strange ad depicts widescreen Nintendo DS

I haven't read Nintendo Power since sometime in the 90's, before I discovered the internet. Now I rarely find myself reading magazines, as I can find most of the info I crave right here on my PC. If you happened to pick up the latest issue, you might have noticed an ad with a widescreen DS. You don't see that everyday.

Epic VP responds to rumors, doesn’t want people to think they’re cheap

Epic VP responds to rumors, doesn’t want people to think they’re cheap

The rumor mill was churning yesterday bringing us news that Microsoft might be interested in purchasing Epic Games. The sum listed by GamePro editor was $1 billion (insert mental image of Dr. Evil). While Epic isn't really saying whether or not they're even interested in a buyout, they do want the world to know that they aren't cheap.

Mark Rein, VP at Epic Games did comment on the GamePro article, which pegged the company as ripe for the picking by Microsoft, and apparently he was in a pretty good mood when he did. Hit the jump for his official quote.

I have not seen the actual GamePro article but if they're going to make predictions about us selling Epic we would prefer if they started at $2 billion," he said. "Because we don't want anyone thinking that we're cheap. :)

Obviously Rein had his bargaining hat on when he issued his response. However, his poker face needs a bit of work, as that smiley face clearly tells us that he's got something to hide. Or does he?
