It's nearly a year now since RED announced that it was simplifying its product range. In quite a dramatic move, it consolidated its new camera range around a single form factor and the same electronics. Essentially there's now one physical body* and one set of internals. The only difference is the sensors, and since these all have names, it's easy to specify that you want a Helium, a Gemini or a Monstro, and so on.
It's a good strategy and it's certainly made life easier for journalists trying to cover the camera range! I'm pretty sure that buyers appreciate the new clarity too.
So, here's this year's showreel. Here's how the new cameras are shaping up. Looks pretty good to us!
