What I like about Red Epic…and what I don’t like about Red

@MNS1974

Last week I posted about how camera companies need to step up their game now that competition is starting to come to fruition in the 4K market. Red was one of the first companies to truly push 4K (okay 3.2K).  This is a true testament to the power of good marketing. Red made good on true 4K with the MX upgrade, Scarlet and Epic years later. The 4K push from Red was something most...Read More

Competition is good: Life after Red

@MNS1974

Moore’s law is the observation that over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years.  I think this law has changed for our market.  At least when it comes to camera technology.  Back in 2007 the Red One camera was released.  For most of us (who did not finance or were not personal friends of Jim Jannard) didn’t actually get the camera into our hands...Read More
