Truthfully when I put it next to my 3DS I can't decide which is better.
And the 3DS is a sub $200 eight year old consumer product.
And it could also take and share 3D pictures.
The best 3D I've witnessed was from a prototype Dolby TV where off axis the image didn't flicker, but was 2D.
I'm typing this on my Hydrogen One.
While I'm glad to own one, I think all the criticism the phone is getting is completely valid.
One thing many people fail to understand is that "RED Digital Cinema" and "RED Media Machine" are completely different divisions of RED, barely associated with each other. Jim Jannard is mostly the only connecting link.
In my opinion, they made a mistake giving the phone a RED badge. It should be a Leia phone, with RED modules.
The expectations have been WAY higher than they should have been.
The attempt to market the phone under RED's trusted name has backfired. It hurts RDC more than it helps RMM.
He's just modding and rehousing this camera and selling it as his own:
His specs aren't anywhere near accurate.
Too bad this was posted two days after the lens went off sale...
Lensbaby had it for $50 off all last week.
Umm... Obviously he's talking about Scarlet DRAGON. Not Scarlet MX. That is very evident.
Wrong. The Red One MX had a different sensor than Scarlet/ Epic MX.
It might be the "same" sensor, only smaller, but it's a different size.
24.2x12.5 vs 27.7x14.6.
If they were the same size, what would keep the Scarlet from shooting 4.5k at a usable frame rate? Or the Red One from shooting 5k at 12 fps?
Difference was, the Red One had more horsepower than Scarlet, but a smaller MX sensor.
