A few weeks ago, RED, the cinema camera company behind many of the biggest Hollywood movies and tv shows, announced that their entry level camera the Red Raven will now be sold exclusively through Apple's online store... for $14,999.95. 

Here's sample footage of the Raven shot by RED. 


The interesting thing about this is that it's only available as a package. One of the most complicated things about buying a new cinema camera is the age old question "can I use this out of the box?" Now, most professionals will customize their rigs anyway and buy only the items they deem essential for their style of shooting. But I don't think this kit is for them.
