With the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.
Usually, the purchase of a 4k camera comes with large price tags, and producers that need quality and cannot afford the price encounter problems in this aspect. This is, however, no longer a problem with the release of the new scarlet RED camera.
The camera brain costs at a low price, the whole package itself can almost double this price. Despite this, the price is still affordable compared to the competition.
In reality, the Red Scarlet X is just a scaled-down version of the more costly Red Epic. The Red Scarlet X camera is part of a growing community of super 35 sensor cameras that shoot (4096 x 2160 (4K) RAW video. The red scarlet is usually compared to the red Raven.
With the red scarlet, you can record RED raw 4K and 4K HD (16: 9) at 24 frames per second and 30 frames per second, respectively, 3K at about 48 frames, and 2K at up to 60 frames per second. It is even possible to capture 5K, but just at about 12 fps. It also does 120 fps at 1K resolution on the flip side. The red scarlet films at 440mb/s red code, 16 bits, and, with HDRx on, it covers highlight with good exposure of about 18 f-stops dynamic range.
RED scarlet records two different video streams to accomplish this; one is for shadow while the other is exposed for highlights. However, when you make use of this mechanism, the maximum fps are cut in half.
The RED scarlet can either be equipped with a Canon EF lens mount or a standard cine PL mount. It can record as much as four audio channels, and the level can be adjusted using the touch-activated VU meter.
The color-coded level can be seen in the viewfinder and LCD monitor. However, the basic package does not come with a mic mount, but once rails are added, other options exist.
The name scarlet x is dubbed due to the Mysterium X sensor's presence that enables the capture of 4K and even limited 5K raw video.
