On article Red Digital Cinema releases Scarlet-X (112 comments in total)

It's unfortunate they scrapped the more inexpensive 2/3" model, but for the price this one does have very high specifications.

Can anyone tell if the Red One is superior in any way to this new Scarlet-X? So far, frame rate is the only feature I can see.

Too little too late. 8-bit 1.9K 30FPS 6MB/s? That's about one tenth the capability of four-year-old cameras in that price range (e.g. Red One 12-bit 4K 42 MB/s compressed raw), to say nothing of current models.

In reply to:

thielges: I think that the title should read "CMOS *Image Sensor* Inventor..." CMOS itself (as a platform for digital logic) was invented back in the 1960s by Frank Wanlass.

I think the title is just fine how it is.

Most readers who have heard of CCD/CMOS will assume the title refers to image sensors, not generic CMOS. And anyone who reads the first sentence will have the matter clarified for them.

Sometimes brevity trumps accuracy. The title also says "discusses digital image sensors", but technically, that isn't accurate either. He discusses much more than just image sensors (just as the "CMOS" in the title refers to much more than just "CMOS"). But it doesn't make sense to list *all* the things he talks about in the title, so some sort of short summary is made.

Daniel Browning comments on DPreview's comments about Nikon's comment regarding the comments in "some news article."

Daniel Browning understands that DPReview knows that Nikon is aware that some news article appeared in the media.

Please note that Daniel Browning has made no announcement about the fact that DPReview has made no announcement regarding the lack of Nikon's announcement of its imaging product [sic].
