    Hello from October 12th 2019
    I checked the Hydrogen website and found nothing about modules.

    So 2019 is almost over, did RED do the modular camera, or did they stiff all the people that paid 1,300 USD for the phone?

    FWIW: Red has since dropped the price of this phone drastically down to $645 for the regular and shadow variants and $895 for the titanium variant. Maybe if they went and put the latest Snapdragon 855 processor in there and added at least another 2 GB of RAM.

    I wanted the Hydrogen One to be awesome. I hope they try again and make some changes. This is what I'd like to see:

    1. Use cheaper outside materials and reduce the bezels around the screen. Big chin and camera bar are fine.
    2. Lower the price. RED always marks up everything they sell (see MiniMag controversy)
    3. Ditch the holographic stuff. The 3d craze was a fad that died a while ago.
    4. Focus on having the best video camera ever seen in a smartphone. Maybe some version of raw recording and high frame rates with a large (for a phone) sensor.

    Honestly this should be THE phone that all indie filmmakers desire. It should be for the people who want a RED but can't afford it. It should be a cinema camera in your pocket. It should be your low budget option that can double as your daily driver phone or a solid b-cam for low budget films.

    RED: Good Morning. I am a R.E.D. 9000 smartphone. I am by any definition full proof and incapable of error.

    Came back to watch this since the phones been out for almost a year now. Went on to the Red Hydrogen's website to see if they ever came out with the modules for the phone.... and there's nothing about modules or any links to even buy any sort of modules lol. This phone was a huge flop.
