    Also Sony with the F707.

    But this is at an entirely new level.

  5. Maybe. Let's see the details rather than the hype!

    If they can do the same thing to the DSLR that they did to video then
    it will be "an entirely new level", but I don't think they're going to
    be shipping a 50 megapixel full-featured full frame DSLR-equivalent
    camera for 1000 bucks.

  8. A "single-lens reflexive camera" -- not sure what that is.

    I see lots of people using medium format gear outdoors, this shouldn't
    be too much different.

    Here is their accessories page http://www.red.com/store .

    I don't think you can buy anything from them for only a $1000.

    Best I can figure, the pentaprism is upside down inside the body.

    OK so it's not a DSLR killer, just a killer camcorder which is also a
    standard DSLR.

    Excellent.

    Sounds very interesting and should put the pro cameramakers to the test.

    Yeah but their video cameras are enormously less expensive than the
    competition. Pro movie cameras are outrageous. I suppose if they are
    competing with digital Hasselblads, they can do alright. If they use a
    proprietary lens mount I'm not interested. I am interested in video
    somewhat.

    The point I was making was that they are succeeding in the cinema
    industry by having a much higher resolution at much lower cost than
    the competition. To compete on the same basis in the still camera
    industry they would need to be making digital Hasselblads for APS-C
    DSLR prices.

    Yes, it may not amount to much, good point. Maybe just a push for better
    video in DSLRs, or a push to abandon the idea of taking video seriously
    with DSLRs, or a chance for them to assert their role in the serious
    shallow DOF video world which DSLRs are encroaching on, for as much
    cheaper as they were.

    You used to need a Hollywood budget to shoot this kind of video, then
    you could get a Red for the price of a car, now you can get close to
    Red's performance for the price of an ordinary DSLR.
