New RED Monochrome Video Beast
Even if we’ve barely been able to set our eyes on one, we still all love the RED camera, don’t we? Well RED just announced a new monochrome-only version…
Just as with the Leica M, the Epic-M Monochrome will have a newly developed Mysterium X Monochrome sensor that has an overall higher resolution than its color brother because every pixel can be used for light-sensing.
The camera will feature a native ASA of 2000 and will be available for an October 1st shipment with preorders taking place Monday on the RED site. Price? A not-so-cool $42,000, brain only. But we kind of expected that, didn’t we?
Don’t you think the makers of The Artist wish they’d have had this one! In hindsight, I guess they didn’t need it… However, David Fincher is reportedly finishing his project on the new camera, according to Dslrnewsshooter.com.
