Red Bull Stratos is a mission to make the highest free-fall jump in history. Felix Baumgartner will jump from 120,000-feet (22.7 miles) above the earth and it will be captured from a variety of angles.
To make this happen some of the cameras are modified to deal with the extreme cold and some are encased in nitrogen-filled housings. Among the gear featured in the above BTS video are several RED One cameras, Canon 5D Mark IIs, Canon EF-S 10-22mm lenses (mounted on the RED One’s) and Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 fisheye lenses (mounted on the 5D2′s).
Canon is finally getting a trip to space in spite of NASA’s long history with Nikon.
The above video shows off some of the real world potential of Thunderbolt. With the combination of a RED Rocket card and a Sonnet PCIe expansion chassis, even a little MacBook Air can chew through 4K RED footage at full resolution.
It was good to see some Thunderbolt products at CES 2012 finally starting to trickle into the market. See coverage for LaCie, G-Tech and Western Digital for other Thunderbolt devices.
Following Canon’s announcement of the new EOS C300 cinema camera, RED announced details that the long-awaited Scarlet will be getting a 5K sensor, but will only capture 4K motion up to 25fps. The price is $9750.
To be clear, the Scarlet has the same sensor size and dimensions as the EPIC. The processing power, however, is where the limitations lie at. If you are shooting cinema at 24p though, this is the cheapest and highest resolution you’ll find by a long shot.
