Check out this interview with the man himself:

http://hdforindies.com/#113881998708035533

I know that Red is not oakley and some may think this belongs in the off topic section but according to this interview the lenses are being crafted by the O!

There is too much for me to comment on here but the two quotes that stand out are:

"What most people don't know (some of our fanatical customers do) is that we are primarily an invention, technology and engineering company that happens to be best known for our sunglasses."

"he's the only billionaire I know who surfs the forums and posts comments himself"

Very interesting!

SORRY, I FORGOT THE LINK, BUT ITS THERE NOW.

Thanks for the additional link phil. It gives a shade more background. The link I included in my first post is for an actual interview with JJ rather than the run down on Red in the link provided by Phil.

"All lenses we make for the RED cameras going forward will be branded Oakley."

Great now I'm going to have to get a camera

I have read a few articles on the RED project..seems like might revolutionize the motion picture industry because it will allow the small guy to get into the game at around a $10,000 - $20,000 pricepoint. Man of them seemed very excited to say the least....Maybe Jim can shed some more light on this...

If you troll around HD for Indies or here:

you can actually find a lot of posts by Jim or in regards to the camera.

The guy said this was not an actual interview:

UPDATE: this is NOT an interview. I wrote this in a hurry and realized a Q&A between a hypothetical reader (and the questions and tone they typically would have) and myself, knowing what I know about the camera, would be a good format to present the information in. For instance, my comment about "da bomb" was me having fun with some of the reader inquiries I get. In my hurry to get it online, I failed to define that. My bad. Read this more like an FAQ on a website than a sit-down interview with anyone in particular. Answers provided are my answers, based on my opinions and knowledge of Jim and the RED. My apologies if I inadvertently gave the wrong impression.

Try the link in the first post. It leads directly to an e-mail interview conducted with JJ.

It looks like he's wearing those cheesy 3-D glasses they give you at the theatres!

I can't quit claim to know what it all means. But like everything Red, it must be cool.

We've all been hoping for more JJ eyewear, but perhaps it may not be in the sunglass world. Perhaps this 3D projector will come with a JJ-designed (or Matt Tremblay-designed) pair of glasses. One could hope.

Maybe if a laser projector would alleviate the general need for good light control that using projectors usually come with, then maybe I can finally get on board and get a decent sized screen in our living room!
