the red camera
RED is fast becoming the digital cinema camera of choice for today’s filmmakers, both for large Hollywood studios and independent films. Recent film blockbusters such as The Hobbit, Flight, The Amazing Spiderman, and Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides, and upcoming movies such as The Great Gatsby, Oz the Great and Powerful, Side Effects and Flight were all “Shot on RED”. Great television shows also use RED digital cinema cameras, including Hatfields & McCoys, Criminal Minds, Shameless, and ER. Smudge Line itself has provided a RED camera and operator for the independent feature film “Fractured” starring Eric Roberts and Jake Busey which recently shot in Michigan.
RED digital cinema cameras are also perfect for corporate video shoots, where the corporation needs crisp, clean, high-quality high definition digital video that stands out over any sales or training tool produced by the competition. The RED SCARLET-X camera films in 4K at 30 frames per second using interchangeable lens, allowing Smudge Line’s professionals to capture amazing depth of field images. That is why so many corporations, from major pharmaceutical marketing and advertising agencies, to manufacturing facilities, to tourist attractions, have all turned to Smudge Line and the RED cameras for their digital video needs.
Finally, the RED digital cinema camera also shoots fantastic still images, which can be taken as stand-alone images or can be screen-captured from full-motion digital video shot on the RED. Magazines like Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and W Magazine all turned to RED cameras for covers, photo spreads, and video content.
And, as if all that weren’t enough incentive to use RED, RED digital cinema cameras are made right here in the United States. Not many cameras, digital cinema or otherwise, can say that today.
