The Red Epic Camera Will Produce an Epic Movie, The Hobbit

Peter Jackson will be using the Red Epic Camera to produce an epic movie, The Hobbit, a prequel to the enormously enjoyed Lord of the Rings Trilogy (via BGR).

The Red movie cameras with their (relatively) tiny size and ultra high resolution produce fantastic high quality movies. While at $58,000, they are not for Home use; it is worth checking out their features, as the same features will be available in home camcorders in the future.

The Red Epic camera records in 5K resolution, an enormous size as compared to the popular 1080p format used in home camcorders.

The camera records and outputs in a large number of formats. A summary of the Red Epic features is below. It is compared with a $750 Panasonic HDC-TM700 camcorder for home use
