    The 3k Scarlet isn't really much of a 'handheld', unless you're the Govenator, in which case why bother as the 5k FF Epic is just as much a lightweight toy in your hands, lol. Just when you thought that 50in prototype 4k res LCDTV had enough resolution for anything. Both of these are going to be a big hit with HD pr0n producers...and plastic surgeons!

    I predict a Red 8k FF ultra-def cam announcement in 2010...can never have enough res ;)

    Still I see not mention of any optical image stabilization, so best to lock down.

    Now we're going to need another FCS update to handle the data streams :D.

    If only they'd put a standard 1080p/24 2/3's sensor with OIS & 128GB SSD for a Canon, Sony or Sanyo, super thin pocket vidcam; would be the darlings of Paris and all the other celebutants. LOL, Brittany filming herself, filming her paps.

    I want to know more about RED and maybe find a discussion forum but my GoogleFu is failing me.

    Anybody know where to start looking?

    The Scarlet looks like a great B-Cam for Red One/Epic productions. I think that too many people are putting heavy stock into Scarlet being a great indie-filmmaker cam, but I don't think it lends itself to that niche very well.

    Time will tell as the cam is still one year from being released.
