Hi, I read something a while back.. sorry cannot find the articleâ€¦ where a new bread of camera was being developed.. I feel to be honest, that the cameras as we know them are still quite crudeâ€¦ Yes, they can capture great images but its things like the internal mirror that seems a bit wrong to me and the space which it requires.. I remember my old granny showing me a Box camera and a Browning.. and another that pulled out from itselfâ€¦ She said her mother gave them to her, so my great Gran.. She became quite excited when I told her that I too was into photography.. My granny was a photographer back in the fiftiesâ€¦ when she used a Yashica 635 TLRâ€¦ I showed her my D90, she was very excited and was amazed at how photography technology had developed particularly in the digital area..
I read in the article that the mirror inside the camera had be replaced by a computer chip in the lens itself.. It suggested that there would be few lenses required for the camera since it would be able to capture images using a computer within the lens. Imagine a single lens being able to capture wide angle, fisheye and telephoto too..
This Red Scarlet camera is not the one I read about but it goes to show how new technology is emerging so I feel it falls into the category of â€œCool Stuffâ€â€¦ especially since it can in a 5K burst modes snap up to 12 fps with 4K reaching up to 30 fps. I rather like the look of it.. but I donâ€™t like the price.. and to be honest, I am hanging out to buy the D3sâ€¦ Perhaps by the time I am ready to replace my D3s a new bread of camera would be available without the internal mirror... http://www.all-things-photography.com/red-scarlet-and-epic.html#redhttp://www.red.com/products
