Yes, it doesn’t get any better than this. High Definition, multiply it by 4 and add Megan Fox as the subject and you’ve got yourself the perfect video shoot there is. Shot for the Esquire cover, this is probably the first time that a video has been made for the cover picture. Yes, the cover photo is a still from the video and so will the pictures in the inside be. The Red One is that damn good. You can see the glorious video of the photo shoot here, although due to technical limitations it’s not available in the 4 times HD resolution that it was shot in. The Esquire June issues with Megan Fox will hit the stands on May 10. Meanwhile, take a look at specifications of the camera that made is possible.
Typical high-end HD camcorders have 2.1M pixel sensors and record with 3:1:1 color sub-sampled video at up to 30fps. RED offers the Mysterium ™ Super 35mm cine sized (24.4×13.7mm) sensor, which provides 4K (up to 30 fps), 3K (up to 60 fps) and 2K (up to 120 fps) capture, and all this with wide dynamic range and color space in 12 bit native RAW. At 4K, that’s more than 5 times the amount of information available every second and a vastly superior recording quality. In addition, you get the same breathtaking Depth of Field and selective focus as found in film cameras using equivalent 35mm P/L mount lenses. Mysterium ™ boasts greater than 66db Dynamic Range thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 12,065,000 pixels deliver resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.
