Looks pretty good
The big announcement from Red Digital Cinema is the RED EPIC-X S35. The specs are very impressive and I love the modularity of the system. This will be the first camera to appear from the long list of new bodies (or "brains" actually) that were announced late last year. Anyone who follows this blog has probably already seen the list of what the Epic-X can do so no point in reiterating here. What I really want to comment on though is not the Epic-X but the announcement that they're continuing work on the 2/3" Scarlet. In this new era of small cameras with big sensors, I simply do not understand the interest in this product. True it's going to do A LOT more than a Canon 5D/7D or even your typical video camera at that price point but what are you going to put on it? A Fujinon ENG Zoom? Any regular 35mm format lens is going to crop x2.5 so even a very wide 18mm will become moderately telephoto. I'm super enthused about this big sensor revolution we're living in and if someone can give me a reason to get excited by a 2/3" RED camera, I'd love to hear it.
