After years of rumours , misfortune and much speculation, we are finally getting closer and closer to beginning of filming of The Hobbit which is due to start early in 2011 ...only few weeks away. It's time to get the cameras ready and Peter Jackson has made his choice. The Hobbit will be filmed in 3D with 30 RED EPIC cameras which are the highest dynamic range of any digital cinema camera ever made.Jim Jannard the owner and founder of RED flew to New Zealand earlier this year with members of his team so that Jackson could test the EPIC and assess its suitability. "Everybody at RED is incredibly proud that Peter has chosen the Epic" says Jannard, "The Hobbit is a major production, and could have chosen any camera system that they wanted. The fact that they went with us is extremely gratifying."
