— Post-production house Copper Digital has purchased a groundbreaking Red One Digital Cinema camera, which it will make available to adult producers sometime in May.
The Red One has vastly superior resolution and frame rate capabilities compared to most contemporary digital video cameras.
"We've been following the development of the Red camera since 2006, eventually placing a deposit on one and waiting patiently to take delivery," said Copper Digital's Chris Colby. "The Red represents a revolutionary step in digital filmmaking. It can capture images at 4k resolution, six times that of a standard 1080p HD image."
"In addition, the camera can shoot at up to 120 frames per second, for extremely detailed slow motion shots," noted Colby. "Think of the Red One as a Nikon or Canon DSLR camera that shoots motion instead of stills."
"I was blown away the first time I saw footage shot on Red," said X-Play director Will Ryder. "It's like a box cover that moves. In fact, because of the resolution it records at, any image from the movie can be used as a box cover. That's pretty amazing!"
Copper Digital has booked the Red One Digital Cinema camera through the beginning of May on an indie production, but it will be available for rent shortly thereafter.
"We can offer on-set support and knowledge of the adult industry and its budget limitations, which can't be found at a typical Hollywood rental house," said Colby. "Naturally, our existing DVD authoring and editing clients will receive preferential rates and scheduling, but we look forward to working with new clients who want to explore this exciting leap in technology."
