RED promises "big change" on Dec. 3rd

RED Big Change Coming

RED already has a second major announcement due early next month, company head Jim Jannard says in a community teaser. Having just launched the EPIC and Scarlet revisions and the DSMC system earlier this month, the greater-than-HD camera maker now promises a "big change" on December 3rd and calls the earlier announcements "insignificant" by comparison. Details of the new announcement itself remain a mystery and are unlikely to be provided until the announcement.

Speculation exists that the update will focus on the workflow for the new cameras, including the hardware and software to manage the extremely large and processor-intensive Redcode footage. Others also suggest an entirely new camera, though the tentative EPIC and Scarlet systems scale from 3K to 28K and so are likely to cover most of the expected camera needs.

    Surely you mean announced? You can't buy or even put down a deposit on these bad boys. Earliest availability is mid 2009. MacNN needs a dictionary!

    this is an announcement

    of an announcement? I'm not a gambling man but I'd be willing to bet that the Dec 3rd announcement will announce future availability. A third announcement will be necessary in January or February or March, when the twice-announced thing is actually available to the 12 people who can actually afford it. Everyone else will be using the MinoHD.

    RED announcement

    Wasn't the rumor that they would introduce some new hi-end digital SLR still camera? Maybe this is it.
