    "Typical high-end HD camcorders have 2.1M pixel sensors and record with
    3:1:1 color sub-sampled video at up to 30fps. We deliver 12M pixels at up to
    60fps and record wide dynamic range and color space 12 bit native RAW. That’
    s more than 5 times the amount of information available every second and a
    vastly superior recording quality. Don’t need all that data for your
    workflow? Dial it back, and keep all the other advantages of the Mysterium ™
    Super 35mm cine sized (24.4×13.7mm) sensor. You get the same breathtaking
    Depth of Field and selective focus as found in film cameras using equivalent
    35mm P/L mount lenses. Mysterium ™ boasts greater than 66db Dynamic Range
    thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 12,065,000 pixels deliver
    resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.



    price ?

    $17,500 US

    now that's cheap!!

    who's shooting with it?, Peter Jackson for one..

    contary to the critics claims
    <http://dvinfo.net/conf/archive/index.php/t-65947.html >, Jim Jannard the
    billionare put him honey where his mouth was and ponied up for the R&D costs
    so the consumer gets the camera at rock bottom price.

    any way you cut it, a 12Mp camera that can rip at 60fps is worht it's weight
    in gold :)

    When I got my first Mini-DV cammy in 1997 I often made still pics from
    it using a "Snappy" video capture device. These were just 640x480
    stills like this one:

    (Yeah, that's me.)

    Even back then I thought that if somebody could figure out a way to
    record really high quality (like 12MP) in a film format that you could
    get video captures from, still photography as we know it would soon be
    over.

    Maybe the Red camera is the beginning of the end, or maybe it is just
    vaporware. We shall see. But one thing is for sure ... the end is
    coming. We've probably all experienced a time when we were shooting
    and we just missed that exact look we were after, the passing glance,
    or the decisive moment. Or maybe we were shooting sports and tripped
    the shutter just a split-scond too late. Had we been shooting high-
    res video we could just aim and fire. Then we could capture the exact
    scene we wanted later. Takes some of the fun and the skill out of it,
    I guess, but I think that's where we are heading.

    The question is, "Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"

    My grandfather was a cinematographer and that was a dream of his - he was
    always jinkering around with 16mm and 35mm cine cameras as though he was a
    stil photographer.

    it's built..

    it's for sale

    Peter's made a movie with one and you can lay down the dollars and buy one
    today.

    the fear that it's vapourware is over. turns out Jim was dead set on the
    same desire and put the dollars down because *he* wanted one that did
    exactly what we all hoped for, a high res DV cam with damned fine still
    capabilities. we all get the benefit..

    depends on who's asking

    the enthusiast with the dollars will say it's a good thing - the pro might
    say it for a short time and then..

    And the best part is that you can get it with a Canon lens mount.
    I'm all over it!

    Now the question becomes one of how you edit the footage?
