RED Hydrogen One – Full Specifications, Review and Prices

RED Hydrogen One

The RED Hydrogen One is not really a smartphone, it’s a camera that also happens to be a smartphone. This makes sense to me intuitively, because when I use smartphones for video projects, or to take photos on vacation, I use a separate phone as the camera. That’s exactly what I did with a Galaxy S9 when I was testing the Moment Lens Anamorphic on a trip to Yosemite.

If you conceptualize the Hydrogen as a phone that competes with Samsung, Apple, or Huawei, it just flatly doesn’t make sense. But ask yourself this: if you were designing a pocket camera today, would you use the slow embedded chips that Sony, Canon, and Nikon use in their compact cameras? Or would you use a speedy Snapdragon chip, like the one Google is using in the Pixel 2 to deliver its category-leading computational photography?
