RED looks for disruption with 5K SCARLET-W release
RED Digital Cinema has unveiled the latest addition to its line of professional cameras, the SCARLET-W, joining the RED RAVEN and WEAPON. SCARLET-W offers a RED DRAGON sensor, interchangeable lens mounts, simultaneous recording in REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes formats, an intelligent OLPF system, and in-camera 3D-LUT outputs. At just $9,950 for the camera BRAIN and $14,500 for the complete Base I/O V-Lock Package, SCARLET-W delivers flexibility and accessibility.
SCARLET-W captures 5K at 60 frames per second (fps), 4K at 150 fps, or 2K at 300 fps with REDCODE RAW; and its wide dynamic range produces cinema-quality images rich with natural colour. SCARLET-W also offers an upgrade path to WEAPON and uses the DSMC2TM line of accessories — compatible with both RED RAVEN and WEAPON cameras — giving shooters the option to move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear.
“When we began shipping the 4K RED ONE in 2007, it did nothing short of disrupting the camera industry with an unheard of blend of performance and price,” says Jarred Land, President of Red Digital Cinema. “And we are doing it again—meet the 5K SCARLET-W.”
