blog bomb – ted with red scarlet at ces

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.

Disclosure, to comply with the FTC’s new rules

None of the manufacturers listed above are paying Peter Salvia to write this article and, so far, none have sent him any samples or demonstration items.  And he sure as hell wouldn’t turn them down if they wanted to send him a Scarlet to play with.
