22 September 2008 @ 20:26Red steers Scarlet in a different direction

Jim Jannard of Red Digital Cinema says that the roadmap for the Scarlet camera has changed.

We have changed everything about Scarlet because the market has changed and we have discovered a lot of things in the process. We have a new vision.

Wipe you minds of the past announced Scarlet. Forget the design and forget the price. It is all different now. We think you will be surprised. Glad we didn’t take any deposits… :-) [#]

The implication is that Red wants to create a camera that does both still photography and high-definition video, and does it well — DSMC (Digital Still & Motion Camera). Jannard has already called out a major defect of the Nikon D90 when recording video. The defect is known as “jelly movement” (shown below), and Jannard says that Red has already solved this problem by using “the fastest read-reset CMOS sensor known to man”.
