Future Question
on Feb 1, 2007 at 10:18:20 pm

This is a way down the road question but I have been thinking about it so I thought I would ask. The super cool RED camera that is supposed to be coming out someday. I know that camera can shoot 1080p and I am guessing it is like 720p and not 30p in a 1080i format. If it is a true 1080p can the DVCpro 100 codec support it once transcoded, or would it try to convert it to a 1080i?

Just wondering?

Thanks,

-Lars

That camera doesn't really shoot 1080p...it shoots 5k, then you can downconvert to anything you want.

Yes..5k. Not 4k...5k. You have a LOT of reading to do...I suggest:

http://www.hdforindies.com Mike Curtis has the inside track on this camera

http://www.dvxuser.com. They have a RED section.

This camera shoots film quality imagry. VERY impressive. 1080p is quite a step DOWN for it.

You are so right this camera is very impressive. I have been looking at it for a while now and hope to see them at NAB. I'll look at the other links.

Thanks,

Interesting. I never heard of those cameras before. Perhaps there is a buz around this camera because of the price some where around $17,000 for the body. I didn't see any other prices on the other sites for their cameras.

That's because they cost an arm and a leg- closer to $50,000 and even $100,000. Yes, Red is a quite revolutionary camera both in specs and price, here's hoping they make it to market soon.

The sensor is nearly 5k at 4900x2580, but some of those pixels are reserved for black balance and the like, leaving a maximum shooting area of 4520x2540, what we call 2540p or 4.5k. For recording via REDCODE, make frame size is 4096x2304 which is 4k 16:9.

Thanks for "This camera shoots film quality imagry. VERY impressive. 1080p is quite a step DOWN for it." comment Shane. That's very much appreciated as we've been putting a lot of work into the image. Looking forwards to showing you more at NAB Shane!
