Nollywood actress Uche Jombo has taken it a notch higher by acquiring a new RED ONE camera! The Red One is a 4K digital cinema camera aimed at Cinema syle shooting, that uses traditional film lenses and other film hardware including matte boxes and follow focus systems. But instead of shooting film it shoots digitally.
This will definately improve the quality of films being produced by her production company, UJ Studios, which is a fully automated-audio-visual production studio. This makes Uche probably only the second person to own such a camera in the country! A big congrats to her on this accomplishment.
More on the RED One: It shoots at a resolution several times higher than high definition, making it more suitable for theatrical release. It’s larger sensor and ability to use film lenses gives the image a more traditional cinematic look than most HD as well.
It records to hard drives or Compact Flash memory. Footage can be downloaded to a computer from the hard drive, via Firewire 800, Firewire 400 or USB. The Compact Flash memory can be used in any Compact Flash reader.
