Today, RED Digital Cinema announced it is further simplifying its product portfolio with the availability of the DSMC2® DRAGON-X™ 5K S35 camera. RED also announced the DSMC2 PRODUCTION MODULE and DSMC2 PRODUCTION KIT, which are coming soon in early 2019.
The DSMC2 DRAGON-X camera uses the award-winning DRAGON sensor technology found in many of RED’s legacy cameras with a evolved sensor board to enable RED’s enhanced image processing pipeline (IPP2) in camera.
In addition to IPP2, the DRAGON-X provides 16.5 stops of dynamic range, 5K resolution up to 96 fps in full format and 120 fps at 5K 2.4:1. Consistent with the rest of RED’s DSMC2 line-up, DRAGON-X offers 300 MB/s data transfer speeds and simultaneous recording of REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR.
