I know RED has mentioned them before but I believe this is the first mention of progress on their development. Since FF35=Monstro (Hello FF35 Scarlet) I am very excited about even the mention of the RED lens program advancing.
So Jarred, what else can you tell us about the Electronic RED glass???
Also, Scarlet is a lot smaller than an Epic. It houses a smaller sensor, and subsequently all related ASICs will be relatively compact. (Yes, I would expect the S35 Scarlet be slightly larger than the 2/3"). Let's not forget how small these Scarlets are - they aren't much bigger than your DSLR. The whole idea of Scarlet is compactness - I am sure RED have continued remove weight and size wherever possible. 4.5 lbs is even lower than my optimistic wish (5 lbs), so I am delighted. I would expect the lens would be a big chunk of the overall weight, too.
Granted, the Scarlet is longer on the axis not portrayed, but it is an amazing achievement.
I would expect the 2/3" Scarlet to be much smaller than the Epic.
So, Jarred, no little sample video of the 2/3" version ? A pretty girl with a wet T-shirt riding a horse would make my day. Don't forget the cigar too.
