Last week, renowned professional camera maker RED announced its own Hydrogen One smartphone. This news caused heated discussion on the network, as RED products are considered one of the best on the market and are used by the most famous directors such as Ridley Scott, David Fincher, Peter Jackson and others. Little is known about the smartphone itself. According to the description, Hydrogen One will be modular and will receive a 5.7-inch holographic display. Even more interesting information about the device became known from the patent of RED.
Modular smartphones are not new to the mobile market. We’ve already seen the LG G5, the Moto Z line and the canceled Project Ara, but the RED Hydrogen One should be something completely new. The smartphone can be turned into a full-fledged camera with the help of additional modules: display, battery, lenses and much more. When assembled, all this will resemble RED cameras, rather than a traditional smartphone.
Additional modules include different lenses and even image processing processors so that the smartphone can shoot video in 8K resolution. The camera module can use CMOS, CCD, or even FOVEON sensors with sizes ranging from half an inch to full-format and larger. The user will also be able to place additional modules between the smartphone and the camera module: batteries, hard disk and others.
If you put everything together, it becomes clear that RED intends to release not just another smartphone, but a hardware platform for professionals. On the basis of Hydrogen One, operators will be able to assemble cameras, replacing modules depending on the specific task or shooting conditions.
It is important to understand that RED Hydrogen One will not be a mass product. Without additional modules, this unit will cost 1,195 and will not have high functionality.
Not trash, but a dubious product. Most likely the target category of buyers is wealthy youtuber. So, I think the product will not go to the masses explicitly.
Heroop gopro will also work for YouTube, why overpay?
who needs this stuff when there is Sonya with an optical stub 🙂
So in YouTube there is software stabilization
so youtuber will come down and a 4-camera oulephone
In short, this is not a smartphone, but a designer for professionals. The crown of the development of smartphones is still Yotafon.
and someone not xiaomi?
rather this "trash" no w3bsit3-dns.com audience needed
Fake, there will be nothing, the project will be bent. Just the news about something that needs to be done, such as an ARA or a smartphone with a nuclear battery.
here is the brand, if something goes into this smart with the main product, then there will be an interesting replacement for GoPro
YouTube, if they are adequate, take an iPhone (for calls and video, provided that there is no other equipment).
Those who have money buy GoPro and the holder of Dji Osmo mobile.
Frankenstein is a gloomy genius. Interestingly, who in general, according to the developers, will buy it? Sane people would prefer to take a ready-made device for specific purposes than to do such a lego. It will be more reliable.
Such collected all lotions, turned on, connected, and then an important call.
I pressed the button on the headset and calmly answer this important call.
Is it vibro while shooting?)
Do you know how to read? It is a manufacturer of PROFESSIONAL technology. And this unit will be aimed at PROFESSIONALS in shooting video. And it seems that all the local commentators consider their "expert" opinion of the ultimate truth. But this is not so. Bottom line: if you do not need it, then this does not mean that no one needs it
Do this "lego" very unprofessional for such a PROFESSIONAL company. For it has long been known that the best result is provided by specialized devices, sharpened for specific tasks. Therefore, once again. this is exactly the Frankenstein of a gloomy genius.
Why is that ?
The product seems to be not bad. Yes, it is not for the average consumer, but he will be able to justify
It’s not clear who he is, the directors will buy a camera, ordinary people just have a smartphone, bloggers will manage devices more easily, and it’s not clear who the product is for. For something modular to succeed, it must be massive and affordable, so the bathroom is a complete failure of the product
As for the producers, I’m not sure. They can use this phone for everyday life. But the main thing is the quality of the picture, and this phone can give a good quality. over, I think they will make a maximum of 100,000 to make everything sold
I’m sure most Hollywood directors are quite happy with their iPhone, and I think this device is more likely to be needed for PR, because if someone buys a smartphone for interest, then no one will need modules for it
"this phone is for everyday life". A bunch of smartphones that are already on the market will cope with these goals. For example, the iphone (sams, vertu, etc.). Why again, these modular chips that no one needs.
"directors will buy a camera, ordinary people just have a smartphone, bloggers will make devices easier, and it’s not clear who the product is for.". absolutely right!
Junk is what you wrote. Before you defecate epistolically, you need to think with your head.
This is a constructor for glory)
I immediately remembered the Soviet magazines do it yourself, with all sorts of models from cardboard and paper
You look at the canon penny hung with a video of baubles, you will be very surprised. Just a smartphone is becoming the center of an increasing number of tasks, it is becoming a place where human life is concentrated. Communication, social networks, music, taking photos and videos, storing books and other information. So this product is a natural continuation of the general tendency to develop one device for all occasions
The wicked way. So soon all the way to the lathes will gather around the smartphone. With CNC.
1600 bucks for an incomprehensible smartphone is certainly cool. And more modules probably by the way bucks will be. Doubtful product.
1195 is written, sort of like
There will be two versions. Aluminum 1200 Titanium 1600. I wrote immediately about the older one because I suppose that the difference will not only be in the material, but also in the filling, and buying a younger version of such a specific phone is completely stupid as it seems to me.
So he is not done for us
Smartphone for Ridley, David and Peter. Three pieces and sell.
They will receive as a gift, as a PR
Video: Gopro Hero 5 iPhone X Screen Replacement
similar in theme to Lada, also the same constructor))))
IMHO, it looks like porridge from an ax)))
and if it also rolls in the same way it will finally be one in one)))
Important and the call comes in when the smart is inside "the cameras". You can, of course, use a headset. And if not, you sit, you disassemble the constructor. To send an SMS that did not have time to receive a call. Why such difficulties.
1. Have you heard about the loud speaker?
2. What prevents to implement the headset functionality in the modules of the assembled camera?
Why come up with the complexity of a product that so far only exists on paper?
Yes, I heard, I heard. And even used it. Simply, the more complex the device, the higher the risk of breakage and a decrease in real usability. It seems to me that it’s better to still have a full-fledged separate smart camera.
Yeah, for music player, for selfie. fotik, for internet. pc: D
Although I also don’t see a profit from the presence of a telephone module in a professional camera. So why is it there?
For music player, for photo camera, for selfie iPhone, for PC games, for internet laptop. So it will be more correct: D
For games. the console.
With a jerky picture, yes
So gradually the smart will grow into blocks and turn into a car.
Rather, the car will be like "headset for smart". Or as a contactless key in cars, such as a car without a smart, stupidly will not start. : D
It’s already scary to imagine what will happen to the constructor if he accidentally uranium.
It’s not advisable to drop equipment at all, then. And here there is a chance that well-implemented fasteners will be able to repay some part of the impact from falling and the subject will only sort into pieces, while not scattering to the sides.
In short, there will be a camera with a smartphone inside, and what’s cool.
Especially fans of the medium format is the most!
Here you will be glad to have bought this device and body kit for the camera for 2-3 thousand dollars, faced with funny android stuff like “com.red.camera application stopped” and spontaneous reboots during a photo shoot or video shooting: D
you’ll immediately see your profile, you understand Android
more than 4 years on this platform before switching to iOS, analytics failed ¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯
more than 4 years, much has changed, excuse failed
so 4 years have not passed, but used 4 years, is not everything all right with reading?
I didn’t say that more than 4 years have passed, isn’t everything all right with reading?
and then what has changed? lol
I had a displeasure with the android from 2.2 to 7 (even now I have to deal with it regularly)
I used it with 2.3, and I did not see such critical bugs (except for picking firmware), and this device is 1000, do you think there will be such shortcomings?
He is a local bucket hater
In the world of professional things, every little thing is very expensive. the price is more than adequate. This is not a smartphone for girls and boys playing in Tanchiki.
Only then it is not clear why the smartphone is also on Android, if for professional use it would be better if they just released a modular camera and this is some kind of nonsense
It’s more practical to have a smartphone that can be supplemented at any time with a professional device
Yeah, I look directly at the diagrams above, and I imagine that. "in some moment" read it yourself, as a result, there’s nothing left from the smartphone because it’s not clear why it is needed there
The smartphone itself will have gorgeous photo capabilities (relative to smartphones)
You need to understand that this is a specialized product not for a wide audience.
A professional photographer can use this "constructor" like a regular camera.
The product is actually even very unique)
Perhaps after a certain time, such a concept will take the market "DSLR"
Note that no one talks about the photo capabilities of the smartphone itself in red, only about modules, and even a separate module will be responsible for image processing
Last week there was a statement about smartphone support for 8k photos and the opportunity to become one of the best camera phones.
The article says that for 8k he needs a separate module
8 to the video, and I’m talking about the photo.
All ed cameras are modular. Guys just go on. If this phone will shoot Rav video, work with loot in the manner of a desktop grade system. this phone is just an imba for those who are shooting (bloggers, reviewers, clip makers, etc.)
The local contingent will not understand, give them an iPhone and hlaomi so that you click and you’re done. And what is ready there. they don’t care. Peresharp, soap, overexposure. we send our fiery greetings to the instagram)
The first professional product that has no analogues
sharlamov, you’re right. This is bullshit!
You need to buy three of these things, put them in a sandwich and it will only be a smartphone. And for the camera
Reminded me of a movie "Naked gun", the moment where he collected an anti-aircraft gun from a pistol))
Why so many bells and whistles, so many modules and troubles, when it is easier and more reliable, cheaper (for sure) and it will be more convenient to simply carry a separate normal camera with you! If you just imagine, I took out a smartphone, if you want something to take a picture of. You cling to a bunch of modules and it makes a camera, even a normal one. And then bam, and you need to see something on the 2gis map, or just call. With such a bandura, it is probably very inconvenient and either disassemble the camera or wear another smartphone. In short, all this is very doubtful. a slightly different matter if it is used exactly as a modular camera. Progect ara was much more promising if it hadn’t been specifically bent (my opinion). It was an awesome, maintainable device for the consumer, which the manufacturer doesn’t need. he needs to pump out the dough as much as possible and none of them wants the smartphone market to accept some features of the PC market. One only needs to recall the prototype that was shown to us: it was fat and heavy, not comfortable. The modules were held on magnets. YES ONLY A FULL Fool WILL COME TO THE HEAD SO FAST THEM. But google fools do not work, it’s not easy. It was because of the magnets that the prototype came out huge and heavy, in a bag (for example) keys, headphones and money from neighboring cormans would stick to it. this is complete nonsense and this was done just to prevent the project from working out. Otherwise, it was really impossible to make the modules movable on latches. This would not increase the weight of the device, the thickness, it was simple and reliable.
Ara wasn’t just bent, the thing is simply that you need to rework an android to replace important modules, and transfer it to a system of basic drivers like Windows, in addition, the production of these modules would result in the price being too high and unreasonable
Why does no one think that this unit is not for everyday use? It will not be carried in your pocket for games, calls, navigation and other things, and then modules will be hooked to take a picture of a flower. Most likely, such a camera with a smartphone inside will be able to offer much more features than a conventional camera. Alternatively, immediately from this smartphone-camera to conduct online broadcast wirelessly.
But the main feature should be exactly modularity. Instead of acquiring several cameras created for different tasks, the operator can simply change some individual modules depending on the shooting conditions and the task.
This device is simply stupid to consider as a replacement / alternative to an everyday smartphone.
Just a smartphone is an everyday device, and if we talk about professionalism, I already wrote that a modular camera would be much more logical (and who will watch these 8k broadcasts? And most importantly, how and on what?)
I think it’s worth waiting for the release, when the company still shows the smartphone itself and talks about its functions. I am more than sure that it is created primarily for operators and content creators. And at RED, it seems like not stupid people are sitting (since their cameras are in such demand and respect on a professional level) and understand that releasing an incomprehensible smartphone for 1200, millions of people will not run to buy it instead of the new Galaxy or iPhone. If you already decided to create a hardware ecosystem based on a smartphone, not a camera, then it is obvious that there were reasons for this.
So I imagine Ridley Scott comes to the shooting of a new alien, takes out this miracle device from his pocket and proudly throws it in front of the operator at the same second the operator and a crowd of assistants begin to turn this device into a super camera. In short, the nonsense is complete, the bottom line is that as a smartphone, the product is useless, as the basis for the camera just does not make sense
Beggars and spherical experts from 4pda just do not understand what and why. If you’ve never shot a professional camera like the same Red Epica, or Arry, or even a carrot, or black magic, then what are you talking about here and why?
A device for a niche audience, with a reasonable price policy for this audience.
W3bsit3-dns.com, even if they changed the title picture. Recently there was news about this miracle machine, with the same picture.
The question is, why the hell is this trying to cram a smartphone.
I have a question, gentlemen, why not a single mention of this company / brand in Google? If so, the name of the color was chosen unsuccessful due to the presence of phones and accessories for them in red.
80% of films shot on RED cameras. Looking bad.
Did mobile phones come out earlier?
No, this would be mentioned in the news. The name was chosen, as I understand it, because of the polarization filter on the sensor (but I could be wrong, however, on the epic that I shot, the sensor "cast" red at an angle, as if hinting)
Can someone explain how this is a holographic screen? 🙂
I wonder what he will have there for the holographic display.
For me it will be a hat. A lot of noise, but in fact there will be a zilch
This is a camera with 3g module
And when will it be released?
Finally, RED turned to the people.
Heh, read the comments, laughed.
Just want to say that the following is IMHO.
The project is extremely ambitious and interesting. To whom? exclusively to filmmakers (like all RED products). what we have? we have a phone with integration with red cameras, which can be used as a camera monitor (for a magician with tuned picking, for dit with waveform and a vectroscope, for cutting with a color preset) (200-600), instead of redmote (550), like "brain" cameras (obviously a matrix, v-mount plate, sdi / hdmi, pl and other pleasures are modular), like a photo camera is no worse than a carrot with a modular mount, the ability to put Nikon optics and sony and fuji and pl and in general everything that comes to your senses, and Of course, you can use it like a phone. In general, a beast device, for a very narrow circle of consumers.
about important calls. Friends, on the site it’s customary to turn off the phones.
this is what I mean, the price is not overpriced and quite adequate for film technology (of which this background is obviously), and the functionality goes off scale.
The bottom right is written: FIG. FIG you collect this from our phone. Apparently the meaning of this
