RED DSLR in works
RED is looking to build a still camera, according to a company official. The company has so far specialized in HD movie cameras such as the Scarlet and the Epic, but is said to be interested in the world of DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) hardware as a divergence. DSLRs are the cameras most used by professional photographers, due to features like portability and lens choice; only more cumbersome medium- and large-format cameras may have superior features in some regards.
Little has been disclosed about the RED DSLR, but it is expected to use Mysterium Monstro, sensor software that "pushes the envelope past anything on the horizon," the company claims. The Monstro software will also be available as a free upgrade for Epic cameras, but no date has so far been proposed.
