With the 6K RED DRAGON sensor, you can capture over 9x more resolution than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the SCARLET DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology. 6K resolution translates to over 19 MP, packing the same amount of detail you'd expect from your DSLR into a cinema camera. When you can capture 5K 2.4:1 stills at up to 60 frames per second (fps) or 5K Full Format stills at 48 fps, you get more chances than ever to capture the perfect shot. Every still is RAW and Adobe Photoshop compatible, which means your workflow doesn’t need to change—even as technology does. The RED DRAGON sensor blurs the line between motion and still cameras, giving you the best of both worlds.
Your image is only as good as the color science behind it. The new RED DRAGON sensor features our most advanced color science yet, taking advantage of vastly improved dynamic range and low-light capabilities. Skin tones are softer, primary colors are more vibrant, and subtle color variations are discernibly remarkable. SCARLET DRAGON cameras capture images that are true to life, with colors that can only be described as "brilliant".
The RED DRAGON offers dynamic range that was once thought impossible for a digital sensor. Such wide latitude provides cinematographers and photographers alike with the ability to take on challenging lighting conditions, without the need for excessive filtration. Improved low-light capabilities let you shoot at ISO 2000 and still produce a clean image fit for theatres or publication. Dilated exposure and improved sensitivity makes it easier to take on the unpredictable and capture the unbelievable.
The SCARLET DRAGON clocks 48 fps at 5K Full Format resolution, merging the worlds of hi-speed with hi-resolution. For even faster speeds, simply drop your resolution and take advantage of maximum speeds of up to 150 fps. With blazing fast hi-speed capabilities, there's nothing that gets past your SCARLET DRAGON.
