The monstrous Red One just got a little sister. The Red Scarlet ($TBA) is a more handleable hi-res camera, offering insane specs like a 3K resolution with Red's 2/3-inch Mysterium X sensor, 1-120fps (180fps burst) shooting, and up to 100MB/sec Redcode Raw HD and RBG recording to dual compact flash cards. The Scarlet sports a 4.8-inch LCD, 8x T2.8 Red zoom lens, full auto or manual modes, HDMI/Firewire 800/USB 2.0, and Wi-Fi control.
Nikon gives new meaning to Mazda's lame "Zoom zoom zoom" slogan with the new Coolpix P80 ($400). The compact digicam boasts an impressive 18x Zoom-Nikkor lens with optical vibration reduction, a 10.1-megapixel sensor with EXPEED image processing, a 2.7-inch LCD, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, and programmed auto shooting modes, and can shoot as many as 30 consecutive pictures at up to 13 frames per second. For those looking for dSLR features in a smaller body, it's the new king of the compact zoom.
Sony has announced the HDR-TG1 Handycam ($900; May), the world's smallest full HD camcorder.

The HDR-TG1 features a durable titanium body, 2.7-inch touch panel LCD screen, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 10x optical zoom lens and 2-megapixel ClearVid CMOS sensor, face detection technology, and comes with a 4GB PRO Duo Mark2 media card.
