RED Scarlet / Epic-Lite

What three years ago was predicted to be RED’s mid-range digital cinema camera, the RED Scarlet, was announced last thursday as much more.  The previous specs had predicted a 3K picture from this tiny package, but the announcement revealed that the more affordable RED (at around $10,000) will essentially be the Epic-Lite.  5K still pictures, 4K recording at 25fps, QuadHD at 30fps, 2K at 60fps, and 1K (still nothing to shake a stick at) at 120fps.

Top of the line digital cinema quality at this price could mean another big push in the surge of independent film making, but unfortunately, RED doesn’t seem to have any plans to improve your writing.
