Red Camera has introduced a slightly cheaper version of its high-end cinematography cameras, aimed at filmmakers on a tighter budget. The Scarlet-W is said to fit between the Raven and Weapon cameras in the range, offering 5K 5K Full Frame at 48fps, 4K at up to 150fps, 2K at up to 300fps, and ProRes 2K 442 HQ at up to 60fps, using its 5120x2700-resolution 13.8-megapixel Red Dragon imaging sensor.
Red Camera has launched the latest in its line of high-specification cinematography cameras, this time with a slightly cheaper model that aims to offer a similar specification set to the higher-priced models but at a lower price point. The Red Raven weighs 3.5 pounds, making it the lightest in the Red stable, with its compact size making it extremely useful for filming from drones or for filming situations where weight and space are at a premium.
Red Camera has revealed its latest cinematography camera at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show, with the potential for 8K video. The Weapon is the newest camera body to use the 6K-resolution Dragon sensor, though the company is giving customers the ability to upgrade the sensor to an even higher 8K-resolution version, when it ships at a later date.
Cinematic camera maker RED has cut the prices on a number of 4K, 4.5K, and 5K Epic cameras, in what appears to be a preemptive strike on the recent camera announcement from Sony. Prices have dropped considerably in some instances, with the Epic-M now being sold for $24,000 instead of its original price of $39,500.
