    Red announced today "THE WORLD’S FIRST HOLOGRAPHIC MEDIA MACHINE.
    IN YOUR POCKET. NO GLASSES NEEDED."



    It is a new modular "camera" and "smartphone". Not sure how it works.

    From Cinema5D "This RED smartphone promises 3D, VR, AR and holographic display capabilities, and being able to seamlessly switch between all the different modes."

    Well that's disappointing. There have been 3D phones before, so that's not only boring, it's an out of date concept. The modular aspect could be interesting, but "holographic media machine" sounds like a silly gimmick I could care less about.

    Red just made the most expensive phone in a market that is beyond oversaturated. Not sure who it is for beyond its own fan base (who is seemingly dropping over $1000 to order something they aren't even sure what it is.)

    Yeah, I'm... not exactly sure what that is.

    But it does fit in your pocket!

    I hope one day I also be capable of making such idle purchases

    I think is interesting how the RED groupies are ordering this device without any specs.
    Resolution?
    Codec?
    Lens mount?
    Sensor?
    Display resolution?
    Demo?

    Most have no idea what it is, and the ordered...

    Pretty sure it replaces the iPhone, as the standard accessory in the industry though.

    Now it's: "If you don't have a Red phone, you don't have a Red phone"

    I'm not gonna spend over 1000 bucks on a phone, but I dig the tactical look.

    Seems like a money loosing endeavor. modular phones have always been a flop. Phones are too disposable to be modular or that expensive.

    I don't really care for anything but the modularity.

    I carry my Fuji X-T1 with me every day. Mostly for direct to social media stuff. I take photos straight to JPEG because the in-camera processing is that good. Then I have to turn on the WiFi and then pair my phone to it. Then I have to open the Fuji app on my phone and then tell the app to read the files off the camera. After a small amount of time all the thumbnails load and then I can check which ones I want to send over to the phone. It's amazing this technology even works but it's definitely a process to get through it.

    If I can effectively slap a sensor/lens mount to the back of this phone and replace my Fuji and streamline the whole process, I'm sold.

    I could care less about 3D/VR/AR anything.

    I also like that it can be used to control/monitor RED cameras. If this can work wirelessly with no extra sort of module needed, then for $1200 you've replaced a Teradek and an external monitor that you can throw in your pocket. I can see directors being happy about not having to carry around an entire monitor+cage setup. I can see DP's being happy about being able to change settings remotely. I could potentially see DIT's happy to provide a live grade.

    Without being able to show the public what this "holographic" technology is about, I have a hard time seeing the general public picking this up right away. But for people already in the RED workflow, I could see it being a very useful tool and finding its niche.
