The title of this thread was supposed to be "Red surprises everyone with ‘hologram’ phone...."
Don't know why it keeps truncating the title. It doesn't happen to other people's posts.
Or read it here on Reduser:
Be interesting to see how this pans out.
OK it's not the Falcon Heavy, or the humongous Lithium battery Tesla are about to deliver to South Australia, but it could go somewhere.
What about realtime R3D playback, Jim? I'd be impressed with that.
After all, my three year old Samsung Galaxy S5 already shoots 4K video, and the latest ones even have proper 4K AMOLED screens....
For my money, a real "killer App" would to have a phone with three or four separate image sensors with different focal length lenses, a bit like the lens turrets on early TV cameras.
You could have one camera selected as the main source, with the others appearing as superimposed "thumbnails". Tapping on one of those would then make that one the main feed. There used to be a few consumer video cameras that, in addition to the usual zoom lens, had a separate sensor with a fixed-focus wide-angle lens. The fixed-lens image also had a superimposed rectangle that showed what the zoom lens was capturing. Properly used, cutting between the two could vastly improve the professionalism of home movies.
I tried to suggest that idea to Samsung, but the only reply I got was Spam
It could revolutionize TV news gathering, once people learned to stop shooting "pillarbox" all the bloody time. (What about a TV mount that can automatically recognize pillarboxed video and rotate the set to suit )
