Red Streamlines Camera Offerings
Red Digital Cinema has evolved its portfolio of cameras and
sensors, focusing on simplicity, price and quality. The company's
camera lineup has been modified to include one DSMC2 (Digital
Stills and Motion Camera 2) camera Brain with three sensor options:
Monstro 8K VV, Helium 8K S35 and Gemini 5K S35. The single
DSMC2 camera Brain includes high-end frame rates and data rates
regardless of the chosen sensor, and the streamlined approach
results in a price reduction compared to Red's previous camera
lineup.
"Red was founded with the desire to democratize the digital
cinema camera industry by making trailblazing technology accessible to shooters everywhere," says ASC associate Jarred Land, president of Red Digital Cinema. "That mission has never changed. With
that in mind, we have been working tirelessly to become more efficient, as well as align with strategic manufacturing partners to optimize our supply chain."
Red's DSMC2 camera Brain is a modular system that allows
users to configure fully operational camera setups to meet their individual needs. Red offers a range of accessories, including display and
control functionality, input/output modules, mounting equipment,
and methods of powering the camera. The DSMC2 camera Brain is
capable of up to 60 fps at 8K, offers 300 MB/s data transfer speeds,
and simultaneous recording of Redcode Raw and Apple ProRes or
Avid DNxHD/HR.
The DSMC2 with Monstro 8K VV, available for $54,500,
offers full-frame lens coverage, produces ultra-detailed 35.4megapixel stills, and delivers 17-plus stops of dynamic range. The
DSMC2 with Helium 8K S35 delivers 16.5-plus stops of dynamic
range in a Super 35 frame, and is available now for $24,500. Priced
at $19,500, the DSMC2 with Gemini 5K S35 leverages dual sensitivity modes to provide creators with greater flexibility using standard mode for well-lit conditions or low-light mode for darker environments.
In a move that coincides with this announcement, Red has
begun to phase out new sales of its Epic-W and Weapon camera
Brains. In addition to the changes to the camera lineup, Red will also
