“So you’ve got a movie-making machine that’s really shooting RAW.”
Click on either of the above picks to go to the Engadget video interview (if you haven’t drooled over it already). I dig Ted’s argument that the DSLR video cameras are essentially shooting high quality web video (h.264) but that his Scarlet camera is shooting the digital equivalent of film with its proprietary REDCODE RAW format. From Wikipedia, Redcode RAW is a variable bit rate wavelet codec which allows raw sensor data at resolutions of up to 4096 x 2304 to be compressed sufficiently for practical on-camera recording.
“A full shooting package [with a 2.8 inch lcd] for $4750” should put Mr. Schilowitz and company in prime position to sell a lot of these babies.
