RED Scarlet camera redux
Premium camera manufacturer RED recently announced informally it is scrapping current plans for the Scarlet camera, and will reveal a new rethought version, still in 2009. A company rep, Jim, announced that the changes to the platform are taking place due to changes in the marketplace, and RED is looking to position the camera differently overall. Jim hints that the changes are "measurable," and equates the announcement to product development.
"We are learning at a rapid pace," Jim notes in RED's forums. This will be like getting a second generation camera instead of a 1st generation. Actually, much bigger than that."
