Red (err...Black/Silver) "Spike" Prototype

Remember the Red One camera that we've all been wet dreaming over since NAB? You know, that camera that, if released, would give Hollywood a good kick in the nuts?

Well, apparently they've almost finished the prototype dubbed "Spike". The company released pictures of their new matte finished camera that's no longer glimmering like an American Chopper...a relief to gaffers everywhere. But then last night, they released shots of their matte black version, which is looking pretty good as well (pictures after the jump).

While I want nothing more than for this camera to be the second coming of the video world, I'm remaining a skeptic until a real production model is in someone's hands. Still, nice pictures.
