I followed the making of this thing from the second Jim Jannard mentioned it on the dvinfo.net forums. I even wrote two essays on it for my 'tech theory' subjects for uni. I love the damn thing, but the price breaks my heart. It was originally designed for indie filmmakers...but turns out its for 'well-off' indie filmmakers. Don't get me wrong, you're getting a 4K camera for an insanely low price, but it just ain't low enough for most indie filmmakers. I'll stick with my JVC HD-101E (which I scored for $3100AUD ex-demo)...3 x 16:9 Progressive CCD's, 1280 x 720 @ 24Progressive; it's all I need to tell my stories I guess. Hopefully the RED One will come down to well under $8K in the next 2 - 3 years.
