Red One Camera

>>By 2008, several ultra high-definition cameras had appeared, including "The Red One" or RED, shown on the right. 

Although the resolution of this video camera far exceeded professional HDTV cameras (see graphic below) this camera was priced about the same.

Because of its superior resolution (picture detail), it further encroached on the dominance of 35-mm film in theatrical ("Hollywood") motion picture production. (See Film vs. Videotape.)

The high resolution of this camera (up to 5K) meant that post-production houses had to revamp their equipment to accommodate the camera's capability.

The following graphic compares the relative resolution of major digital camera and projection systems.
