RED is best known for its high-end digital film cameras, but last year, it decided to have a crack at the lucrative smartphone market with its “Hydrogen” device. Unfortunately, for those who preordered the more expensive titanium version, recent production problems suggest you’re in for quite the wait.
RED, makers of some of the most advanced cinema cameras used in Hollywood, revealed an entirely new product today in the form of an Android smartphone — sorry, “Holographic Media Machine” — that lets you view 3D content without glasses, among other buzzwordy features.
It’s always fun seeing how huge-budget Hollywood films were shot, and what equipment they use. SetLife magazine created a list of just what cameras and lenses were used on each film nominated for 2014 Best Picture and Best Cinematography nominees. It’s not without some surprises.
