RED GEMINI 5K S35

RED GEMINI 5K S35
RED cameras deliver stunning resolution and image quality—creating clean and organic images that bring your footage to life. GEMINI is RED's highest sensitivity sensor to date and offers significantly increased performance in low-light settings and improved performance in shadows. The camera has two native ISO setting, one being 800 ISO and the other being 3200 ISO, It also has a 5k sensor that is SP35 and can run 5K Full Format (5120 × 2700) at up to 96fps and High-Speed up to 240fps in a 2K Full Format (2048 × 1080). A DSMC2 BRAIN is capable of data write speeds of 300 MB/s, and can simultaneously record in REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD.

    With features like cable-free peripherals, integrated media bay, wireless control, and more—DSMC2 is also compatible with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories—from RED and other Third-Party manufacturers. Tack on interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts and DSMC2 gives you the ultimate control over your footage.

    NOTE: The DSMC2 BRAIN® itself does not have a DC IN power port. A port expander or power module is required to power the camera. To construct a working configuration for any BRAIN, RED recommends an expander, battery, lens mount, display, and media.

    NOTE: All DSMC2 BRAINs ship with a standard OLPF; an OLPF 2-pack is available for Skin Tone-Highlight and Low Light shooting environments.
