'The Hobbit' to Be Shot in 3D on 30 RED Digital Cinema Cameras
Peter Jackson's new film The Hobbit will be shot in 3D using RED DIGITAL CINEMA'S EPIC Digital Cameras. The EPIC has 5K resolution, can shoot up to 120 frames per second and has a new HDRx mode for the highest dynamic range of any digital cinema camera ever made. Taking everything they had learned from building their first camera, RED designed the EPIC from scratch and has produced a smaller, lighter camera that is an order of magnitude more powerful. The Hobbit will be amongst the first productions in the world to use the EPIC and at least thirty cameras will be required by the 3-D production. The EPIC'S small size and relatively low weight, makes it perfect for 3-D - where two cameras have to be mounted on each 3D rig. The Hobbit will start shooting in New Zealand early next year.
