RED shows upcoming camera accessories

RED has recently posted teaser images and little else for some upcoming pro-level camera accessories on a RED forum board. Among the upcoming products, all of which are due for a release sometime in October according to the posts, is the RED Bomb Electronic View Finder (EVF), as well as the EPIC and Scarlet camera bodies introduced in March. There is also the REDmote, that will allow for wireless control of the EPIC or Scarlet cameras, with what RED calls nearly infinite customizing options.

The REDVolt is a hot-swappable battery for the range of RED products, while the RED Pro I/O is a connections portal for lights, cameras, audio and power sources, among others. It should also allow for CF recording thanks to its CompactFlash slot. For connections, the RED Pro I/O has HD-SDI out, HDMI out, two channels of Balanced Mic Audio in, + 48v Phantom power, headphone out, Power in, RS-242 and Genlock/GPIO.

The REDGunner is a mount that allows for carrying RED products on a user's shoulder. Finally, the RED Mini LCD attaches to the RED camera bodies and displays what the camera effectively sees.

All are due to ship in October, though exactly when or their prices have not been announced.
