Flying Red Epic camera used in commercial aimed to push for a new national holiday

You may not be aware that there is a push to get opening day for the MLB baseball season to be a national holiday. A group is calling for people to sign a petition that would force the president to have to consider making Opening Day a holiday and to do that they shot a commercial in conjunction with the company behind Budweiser beer. While having a national holiday for MBL Opening Day would be great, some of the tech used to shoot the commercial is very interesting as well.

German effects firm builds DIY flying drone for Red Epic camera

German effects firm builds DIY flying drone for Red Epic camera

I have flown more than one remote controlled flying what not including helicopters and airplanes. The thing they have all had in common was a very short first flight followed by a horrendous crash rendering a chance of a second flight moot.

To be an early adopter is one thing, but to be the first person to own something as extravagant as the RED EPIC camera, well that's something completely different.

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.

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 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'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.
