  • 8K Super-35 CMOS Sensor
  • 8192 x 4320 Recording up to 30 fps
  • REDCODE RAW, ProRes, and DNx Recording
  • High-Speed Recording up to 300 fps in 2K
  • Uses DSMC2 Accessories

Both of the RED cameras meld the ultra-high resolution of their large sensor with a compact form factor. The detail levels produced by high-resolution cameras like the RED provide filmmakers with the option of reframing (zooming in) to create a different image while still maintaining stunning clarity. VFX (visual effects), supersampling, and image stabilization applications also make use of the RED cameras' increased resolution rates. Simultaneous delivery of recordings in high-res formats like REDCODE RAW and in proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD versions add multiple options to the videographer's workflow. Recording in REDCODE RAW enables users to fine-tune exposure and color settings in post-production, while leaving the original image unaltered.

Shared features of the RED cameras available at B&H Photo Video include high-speed 2K capture up to 300 fps, swappable lens mounts, and recording to RED MINI-MAGs. Each camera includes RED's standard OLPF (optical low-pass filter) and can use separately-available OLPFs optimized for skin-tone, low-light, or other applications. The cameras' common DSMC2 form factor is ideal for gimbal, jib, crane, and other motion setups. Multiple expander modules enable the addition of a choice of I/O ports and power options, and viewing options include the cable-free DSMC2 EVFs/onboard monitors.

With a whopping 35.4 megapixels, the HELIUM 8K sensor in the EPIC-W Brain can record 8K video at rates up to 30 fps. This Super 35-size sensor provides the ability to record in high-resolution 8K, while being sized for compatibility with classic cinema lenses. Aside from being a boon for VFX work, the additional resolution of 8K can future-proof projects for the evolution of higher exhibition standards. For projects and budgets not requiring the highest resolutions, the SCARLET-W with DRAGON 5K Sensor records in 5K at rates up to 50 fps.
