When the Oakley CEO starts a camera company, here is what it looks like.
Typical high-end HD camcorders have 2.1M pixel sensors and record with 3:1:1 color subsampled video at up to 30fps. We deliver 12M pixels at up to 60fps and record RAW, or 2x over-sampled HD in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 — your choice. That’s more than 5 times the amount of information available every second and a vastly superior recording quality.
Don’t need all that data for your workflow? Dial it back, and keep all the other advantages of the Mysterium Super 35mm cine sized (24.4 x 13.7mm) sensor. You get the same breathtaking Depth of Field and selective focus as found in film cameras. Mysterium boasts a greater than 66db Signal to Noise Ratio thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 12,065,000 pixels deliver resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.
Also, I wonder how much red.com cost him?
