Latest RED camera is going to be ultra portable

And just happens to also be a phone. It's also modular and has a special futuristic display.

Quote:
RED is a company known for its high-end camera equipment, and now it’s getting into the smartphone game.

The RED Hydrogen One is now official, complete with a 5.7-inch “Hydrogen holographic display”. RED touts that in addition to viewing traditional 2D content on the Hydrogen One’s display, you can use it to watch holographic RED Hydrogen 4-View content, 3D content, and 2D/3D virtual reality and augmented reality content.
You can even use it to be able to view the interface of your regular RED cameras.

It will disrupt and take the industry by storm, just like RED did with RED RAY and their 2/3" 3k for $3K Scarlet.

Re: Latest RED camera is going to be ultra portable

While I think RED makes some technically very capable cameras, I have never "gotten" their marketing, image, names and attitude. To me, people who like cameras that have skulls on them and names like "Weapon" must have some Ed Hardy T-shirts in the closet, wear lots of Axe and like their Michael Bay. Nothing against all that, but it's just not me.

I like cameras that sound friendly, like EVA 1. ;-) EVA sounds cool, like you could hang out with her, have a few drinks and chill with some good conversation.

RED Hydrogen One? Oh boy.

Couldn't figure out how to embed my Facebook post but I give myself permission to repost it.

So RED Digital Cinema is making a phone... What would happen if ALL camera companies made phones?!?

Nikon – Makes a great phone that has the prime selling point of being backwards compatible with the telegraph.

Canon – For 4 years web empires are built on speculating what the flagship phone will be and when it will launch. Riots ensue when a friend of a friend of a friend in the industry hears that it’s going to have a particle accelerator built in. Finally Canon announces and ships... a phone that would be cutting edge 4 years ago but is basically low end tech now. Still, the menu is nice.

Panasonic – Announces and ships phone promptly. Phone has fantastic tech and is higher quality than most phones. Only it’s ˝ the size and who wants a ˝ size phone? No one really. A weird niche of core users hack it and become able to travel through time.

RED Digital Cinema – Announces phone with an ad comprised of nothing but a black velvet nude Elvis painting and promises of teleportation. May possibly be a phone as well. Pre-order sells thousands in the first hour. Charger cable costs more than Canon's phone. No one notices or cares and is sold out for years.

Blackmagic Design – Announces a similar phone to Red for 1/3rd the price. Takes a year and a half to ship. Is both figuratively and literally a cinder block. Has more glitches than Red’s phone but includes a free paperback copy of Encyclopedia Britannica. Develops a cult following from people who despise Red owners.

Sony – Already makes an awesome phone. No one cares (except Chino in our office). Sorry.

Lytro – Actually makes and delivers a holographic phone but no one gives a shit once they realize a holographic phone is completely pointless. Their follow up phone is living room sized and sends criminals to the phantom zone.

GoPro – Makes a mediocre phone but pays NASA to let someone bungee jump off the ISS with it while fighting Godzilla. People lose their minds assuming owning the phone will let them do the same thing and they sell like hotcakes. No one remembers the Contour or Drift phones.

Leica – Paints Panasonic’s phone black and puts a red dot on it, doubles the price.

Hasselblad – One-ups Leica, puts a wood handle on a Sony phone, triples the price.

Samsung – Gets bored of crushing the phone market and makes a decent camera that no one really cares about. Tablets start catching on fire. Ditches cameras and goes back to making phones properly.

SIGMA – Makes a pretty good phone... but runs Windows, so no one gives a crap about it.

DJI – Makes a great phone, but the phones tend to crash frequently and each time require being sent back to the factory for a month for repair. Next gen has anti-crash technology. They still crash.

Fujifilm Cameras – Makes such a good phone that it’s totally sold out anytime people go to buy one so people just go back to buying Canon’s 4 year old tech flagship phone.

JVC – Makes a new phone with the best ergonomics on the market. People aren’t sure whether it runs Windows, Android or IOS so just go buy 4 year old Canon tech instead.

ARRI – Makes a phone with the best call quality on the market. Costs the same as a nice car and weighs about as much, because everything is secondary to call quality. Lacks the teleportation tech of Red, but is embraced by everyone who wouldn’t dare be seen talking on a Red. Wins the Oscar for best phone.

Polaroid – Makes a comeback from certain death by printing text messages on square paper. Minds blown.

Just brilliant !! This' my favorite: "Hasselblad – One-ups Leica, puts a wood handle on a Sony phone, triples the price."

Prototype preview. Probably needs a drool tray add-on. :-)

Red is trying to capitalize on the iPhone filmmaker craze.
