Well, I feel pretty sheepish, I was trying to update my MySpace music list from my rotary phone, when I realized I hadn’t paid my Pacific Bell phone bill for the month. I guess that’s what I get for prioritizing my student loans from Full Sail (smart) before my phone, studio apartment, and ramen noodle funds. Well, no worries, I can do all my internet-ing from my place of employment (I’m sure temporary, the more blogs I write). Turns out, ol’ Mike Bay of Transformers and the short: “Vanilla Ice: I Love You” has had a special, RED Epic with an 8K Super 35mm sensor built just for him. Yeah, impressive. It even has a fancy, neon green housing! Well, long story made short: this is just the beginning. The folks at RED have already sold a handful of RED 8K Helium Weapons, and there will be more where that came from in October.

Now, I can’t begin to tell you how I know absolutely nothing about any of the specs, partly because they’re not posted, and partly because I have no idea what I’m talking about outside of using a disposable camera; but, I’m sure you can figure something out using Google. If you want a little bit of a head start, go here, or here. Either way, I’m pumped, and the wonderful folks over at F11 Rentals have a RED Epic Dragon for rent that’s pretty righteous if you want to get your hands on a piece of the action.
