Yeah, that RED. RED cameras, makers of the popular cinema cameras (that most of you guys might actually know from other tech YouTubers like MKBHD in all likelihood), just announced an Android phone.
There isn’t much info on the phone really in the announcement itself, but here’s the main points from it:
The more interesting point that Twitter user Johnathan Casey pointed out to me (thanks, John!), is the patent that was filed not too long ago by RED for a modular camera system based on a cell phone that is capable of being able to be “configured to output video at 2K, 3K, 4K, 4.5K, 5K, 6K, 8K, or even greater resolutions” (this according to Newsshooter.com). Would make sense that this new camera phone is a part of that, I suspect, no?
The patent images are pretty crazy looking and might incite severe excitement in videographers–you have been warned.
Interesting, right? Check out the full info and patent at the source links below but let me know what you guys think in the comments of all this?
