Red's Scarlet makes her debut


We’ve been hearing whispers about Scarlet for a few months now, and today she’s made her first appearance.

Scarlet is the code name of Red’s “professional pocket camera”, and that’s all we’ve known about it until today. Now, however, we know that it’s a fairly small digital still and video camera that can shoot up to 3k resolution, which is roughly three times the resolution of 1080p, meaning this could be considered a digital cinema camera.

It has many accessories already, and can be outfitted with a number of rail options. It supports dual simultaneous CF cards, USB 2.0, Firewire 800, and HDMI. Oh, and it looks insane.

No word on pricing yet (guesses are it’ll be under $3,000), but it should come in well under the $14k Red One from last year that everyone loves.
