Default James Cameron bought 50 RED EPIC-Ms

Quote:
Looks like another director's been on a shopping spree lately, as RED's Jim Jannard's just announced that he sold another 50 EPIC-Ms to one generous customer. Who's this, you ask? Why, it's James Cameron of Avatar and Titanic fame, and he's probably just blown $2.9 million on his latest stash of cinematographic toys -- it's $58,000 a pop for these hand-machined professional cameras. Details are scarce at the moment, but any educated guess would point at the upcoming Avatar 2 due end of 2014, meaning our favorite blue aliens will be returning in a healthy 5K resolution. Keep an eye out for Jannard's official announcement later this week for the full lowdown.

Now lets hope that he will release A2 in 2k ( but sadly imo it will be just normal 1080p +48 fps still great news as more fps = more Neytiri )

Ah! So they finally shipped the Epic. Wow... It and the Scarlet were so far over schedule (more than three years), I'd stopped paying attention.

LOL@ the picture above.

I have heard a lot about the frame rate increase for movies and what it will achieve.All I can say is AWESOME and BRAVO to JC for pushing the technology envelope of film-making once again!! Woohoo!!

Txantsan... 1080p is not really 'high definition' at all... I can't wait until these are available

Yay, then my mom will be able to see it! I took my mom to the first one in IMAX 3D and she was bent over looking at the floor the whole time, trying not to puke. Apparently, 3D headaches are a big deal for some people.

Time is *critical* when discussing film & TV standards. "1080p" by itself means very little.

1080i50 1080i60 1080p25 1080p30 and 1080p24 are all valid HD standards.

1080 = 1080 lines (1920x1080 pixels resolution).
i = interlaced fields ("half frames"), p = progressive (full) frames.
The last number us how many of the letter.

1080i60 = 60 half frames of 1920x1080 per second. Normal US HDTV standard. good resolution and smooth movement.
1080p30 = 30 full frames of 1920x1080 per second. Same total amount of information as 1080i60, with sharper stills, but movement may be slightly jerky on some shots. Compatible with 1080i60.
1080i50 and 1080p25 are similar, respectively, but used in europe and other PAL regions.
1080p24 = 24 full frames of 1920x1080 per second. Directly compatible with the 24 frames-per-second speed of film. The format used by practically all digital movies, including on BluRay. Including Avatar.

I don't know what the production frame size of Avatar was. (film) IMAX is basically LOADSxLOADSp24.
We don't know the frames size they will shoot A2 at, but it'll be ?x?p48 - there isn't really a common standard for describing the 3D system used in that same terminology.
At home, we'll likely see Avatar 2 as 1080p48.
