RED ONE-from RED Digital Cinema-is here to take you beyond the high-definition realm. It redefines video recording, going into ultra-high resolution territory.
Naturally, it's the 12-megapixel sensor-called Mysterium by the company-that makes this camera special. You can record video at up to 4520 x 2540 @ 30 fps-that's unheard of! Compare this to 1440 x 1080 offered by top-end HD cameras today!
HD video requires impressive storage, and the RED ONE can be fitted with a proprietary 40 to 160 GB hard disk. You can also order 32 GB of proprietary Flash memory as of now, though the cam supports a massive 128 GB!
An attachment called RED-CAGE allows you to mount the camera on cranes and use accessories such as a zoom microphone, an external display screen, and other third-party accessories. Using a mounting rail, you can accommodate all such equipment on the RED ONE, and configure it so that it's physically balanced and gives the best recording possible. For handheld comfort, you have the RED-GRIP mounting system: RED Digital Cinema seems to have thought of everything.
With its magnesium alloy case, it weighs just a little more than 3 kg! No points for guessing though-the price runs into the lakhs: eight, to be precise ($17,500)!
