This according to Dan Chung is China’s alternative to the RED camera, personally I don’t think Jim and the boys at RED are going to loose any sleep over this “alternative”.
BreadCam might be a better name for it as it looks like my grannies old bread bin with a lens stuck on the front, cameras need to aesthetically pleasing not something that looks cobbled together in grampas workshop.
It actually looks more like an old 60s cine camera made specifically for Desperate Dan, I do realise this is a prototype but I also think companies like this one in China should keep their early designs under wrap till they are happy with the “look”.
I think this is an attempt at ARRI rather than RED but who cares unless we see a radical re-design I think this may never see the light of day again.
