Red One Camera - Now With Mysterium!
You have to admit, Mysterium sounds like a late-night infomercial product that comes with a free paring knife if you order right now. Not in this instance though as Mysterium is the oddly named 12-megapixel CMOS sensor used in the Red One video camera. With 11.4M usable pixels, the camera offers HD resolutions in the form of 720p and 1080i, and beyond conventional HD in 2K, 4K, and 2540p formats. Created to be future-proof, the camera is modular by design and “easily accepts upgrades in hardware, software, storage, handling and monitoring accessories.” The picture shown above includes the optional Red-Cage accessory that is primarily used for mounting accessories (and obliterating one’s toes if accidentally dropped). The Red One camera by itself weighs less the 7 pounds and is made from a lightweight magnesium alloy.
Currently under development, with no release date in sight, the Red One carries a tentative MSRP of $17,500 USD. Refundable reservations are currently being accepted for a mere $1,000 USD.
