I love cars. I have been enamored with Ken Block’s Gymkhana series ever since it started a few years ago. What is Gymkhana, you ask? It is a few glorious minutes of magnificent hooning by a pro driver in a killer car and on a ridiculous course made of real-world locations.

For a little background, EPIC and SCARLET owners also have the option to upgrade their cameras’ sensors to the 6K Dragon sensor for around $10k. The upgrade program has finally begun with quite the spectacle here at NAB 2013. The EPIC-M Dragon starts at $29k.
Check out the rest of the images below for a closer look at this impressive process. [Read more…]
Round 2 ladies and gentlemen.
Recall a couple months back when RED initiated suit against Sony for patent infringement by Sony’s F65, F55 and F5 cinema cameras. RED wanted to literally have Sony’s cameras pulled from shelves and destroyed.
Now, it’s Sony’s turn.
RED has dropped prices on its EPIC, Scarlet and ONE cameras in what seems to be a response to increasing competition in the video markets – although RED tips the reason as lower production costs and improve efficiency.
