Mike Curtis visits Red Digital Cinema...

...and he likes what he sees. Mike writes about Red's still-in-development digital camera:

    The test footage I saw off the Mysterium [the image sensor that will power Red's camera], which was early, straight-from-the-lab, pre-beta, not optimized, "we just turned it on and there it was" type of stuff, shot on a low end lens (I think it was a Canon EOS lens) makes me think that Red is truly going to be a force to contend with, that it will at the very, VERY least, compare entirely favorably with existing high end digital cinema cameras...at ANY price.

Red plans to show images to people other than Mike at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam next month.
