According to Jim Jennard at the RED Team, Red is currently working on something that according to him could be the DSLR killer, he says: “We believe, and are developing for late 2009, a replacement for DSLRs. Currently, we call it a DSMC (Digital Still & Motion Camera).”
Reading the red forums and find quotes such as these from the Red Team:
“I will also say that or DSMC is the most beautiful thing we have done. Maybe the “most desirable object in the world”. :-) ” and “We believe it marks the end of DSLRs. That’s all we can say right now.” “If we can’t change the future… we want no part of it!” he also said he would quit his job if people we’re not amazed by it.. Will add the exact quote when I find it. :)
Now, what this is we can only speculate, and I for one welcome this initiative. I do have a hard time seeing a motion camera dealing with IQ the way a real SLR would but looking at movies made with the current RED ONE and well, if they’re working on a killer – why not! Oh, btw, this movie made with a RED system is very cool!
