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. I can only imagine the carnage and repair bill I would wrap up if I had the chance to fly this drone that a German effects firm made for one of those crazy expensive Red Epic cameras.

RED Scarlet Releases Sample Footage

The RED Scarlet is still a prototype even though it was originally announced about two and a half years ago.

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.

For OffHollywood studio head Mark Pederson, who was the first person to own a RED EPIC, that lesson came the hard way, when he learned that his French chalet had been broken into, and cash wasn't the only thing taken.

RED Scarlet adds HDRx video support for extra $1,000

Tell most would-be customers that you're adding $1,000 to the price tag of whatever it is they're waiting for, and you'd prompt a revolution; that just goes to show how unusual - and unusually dedicated - high-end camera manufacturer RED's customers are, since they've not only accepted a $1k increase on the upcoming RED Scarlet, but welcomed it.  The extra money is in return for HDRx functionality, something the company has been talking about since mid-September only in relation to the more expensive RED EPIC.

RED’s Scarlet Camera Still Exists, Gets Shown Off

RED has high-end cameras in the works. That hasn't been a secret for more than a year now. And even if they had been on schedule at one point in time, we know that a bug that plagued not only the RED Scarlet camera, but also their EPIC version, made it so that the cameras were delayed not weeks, but months. There were even some folks out there claiming that the Scarlet camera was merely a pipe dream, and would never see the light of day.
