Panasonic and RED Present Solutions for Pulling Still Images from 4K Video

Publish date:

Steve Kent of Engadget reports from Photokina 2014 where both Panasonic and RED presented solutions that would allow high-quality still photographs to be pulled from 4K video.

He writes, "Panasonic's system is called '4K Photo,' and allows you to extract a still from its 4K, 30 fps, 100 Mbps video stream, for as little as $900 on the new LX100 compact camera. Red, on the other hand, has got a more extreme plan: Capture up to 100 fps, 19-megapixel RAW stills starting at $17,000 for its Red Scarlet Dragon cinema camera."
