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.
You may or may not know the Red label, but it's pretty much the front-runner in professional digital camera technology.
If you've seen a blockbuster that was digitally filmed in recent years, there's a fair chance that red cameras were used.
The Scarlet W has a built-in sensor (Dragon 35 sensor) that is 30% larger than the previous Raven model, so the new camera is capable of shooting at 5K resolution, which, depending on the aspect ratio of the frame, ranges from 5120 x 2160 to 5120 x 3840 pixels. Moreover, a video with a resolution of 5K can be shot at a frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps) and 4K in RAW format - up to 150 frames per second.
This is the fundamental difference between the Scarlet W and its predecessor, which can shoot 6K video at 100 frames per second and 5K at 120 frames per second. The Scarlet W is equipped with an Optical Low-pass filter (OLPF) for image enhancement at high ISO levels.
SCARLET-W and RAVEN internally share the same speeds (140MB/s), but RAVEN is restricted as it has a physically smaller sensor. However, at resolutions below 5K, both cameras will eventually top out at 150fps. Also, SCARLET-W is twice as fast as the current SCARLET DRAGON and is, therefore, capable of 4:1 compression at 24fps, half of the SCARLET DRAGON's 8:1 minimum.
There is much more flexibility with this camera over RAVEN beyond the picture specs as you can adjust the mounts and the OLPFs, something that can not be done on RAVEN.
Another exciting feature of the model is the ability to record ProRes 422 HQ in 2K resolution at 60 frames per second and at the same time record RAW video. The monochrome version of the camera provides a higher resolution and wider dynamic range.
