Giving weight to recent rumors that RED has revised next year's camera lineup (Epic and Scarlet) to add stereo 3D functionality, RED has recently filed the trademark "RED 3D". The trademark application, filed on September 3rd with the US Patent and Trademark office (serial number 77561257), is designated for "Cameras, camera lenses, projectors, eyeglasses and software, all for use in the recording and playback of 3D images."
This news comes on the heels of Fujifilm's 3D still and video camera technology announcement at last week's Photokina imaging tradeshow.
If accurate, this could be a huge shot in the arm for stereo 3D cinematography. As our readers are painfully aware, 3D stereo image acquisition has been anything but "off-the-shelf" up till now.
