NAB 2011 – Ted from RED


Ok. First the Scarlet does exist. Did I get to touch it? Nope. RED’s booth was huge, portraying as a dimly lit tattoo studio. You could get a tattoo and have people watch you. There were three cameras that I was allowed to see. Two Epics. One with a huge what I assuming was a 300mm Red Pro prime. The other was a medium lens. Not sure of the focal length. And the Scarlet! Jared hit up Ted Schilowitz to talk to Wide Open Camera and give us the scoop on what to expect. I was kept at arms length from the camera and had about a minute and half to shoot B roll. A 3K camera that you can hold with one hand. Really cool. Check it out.

Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood, California. After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography. About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    So the Scarlet is fixed lens? Does that mean that for interchangeable lenses you’d need an adapter?

  • Chris Marino

    Technically you are correct. Its a 2/3″ sensor so possibly that could work. Although in person the image was very clean. A little video-y, but I believe its because we’ve been drunk on DOF for too long. Cheers
