The items in this B&H Kit have been hand-picked to provide you with the bare essentials to put together a shootable RED RAVEN shooting package. It includes the camera BRAIN, which incorporates an EF Mount, a RED Touch 4.7" LCD, RED DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module, 120GB RED MINI-MAG media, RED MINI-MAG Media Reader, two Core SWX HyperCore Slim for RED batteries, Core SWX Two-Position Charger, a RED SIDEWINDER multi-tool, and RED Work Mat. The RAVEN shoots DCI 4K resolution video at up to 120 fps, recording to REDCODE RAW, ProRes, or DNx. The DRAGON sensor features improved dynamic range, not to mention its 4.5K resolution. The components of the kit get you up and shooting with a viewfinder, which you need not only to see your footage, but also control the camera. The built-in, non-removable EF Mount in the camera BRAIN module enables using your EF-mounted lenses. The HyperCore Slim batteries provide a full readout in the camera's viewfinder, and the included charger will simultaneously charge both batteries. The included multi-tool and work mat provide you with the tools to work on your camera and a portable non-slip surface on which to work.


    Suited for lightweight configurations like handheld, drone, or gimbal use, the RED RAVEN BRAIN 4.5K camera with EF Mount features the DRAGON 9.9MP CMOS sensor. The compact yet durable RAVEN weighs in at 3.5 pounds, and features a robust, cinematic 16.5+ stops of dynamic range.

    The RAVEN offers you the choice of recording 4.5K, Full Format video at up to 120 fps, or for higher-speed shots, 2K Full Format at up to 240 fps. Recording codecs include the proprietary REDCODE RAW (R3D), Apple ProRes, and Avid DNxHD. Options include recording proxy files only, or capturing in REDCODE RAW (R3D) and Apple ProRes simultaneously.

    Housed in a durable lightweight body, the modular RAVEN can be customized to your liking with separately available RED DSMC2 components such as I/O expander modules, battery plates, EVFs, handles, etc. The RAVEN BRAIN includes an integrated RED MINI-MAG media bay, an AC power supply with 6-pin LEMO cable, and a foam-lined, metal carrying case.

    Note: Not all compression ratios are available at all resolutions and frame rates

    4.5K DRAGON Sensor
    The 4.5K DRAGON sensor at the heart of the RAVEN provides you with RED's cinema-grade dynamic range and color science. This 9.9MP CMOS image sensor captures high-resolution video and stills in 4.5K Full Format at rates up to 120 fps, or 2K Full Format at rates up to 240 fps.
    RED's proprietary REDCODE (R3D) codec provides the flexibility of RAW files without the drive-busting storage requirements of uncompressed data. REDCODE RAW works with many popular NLE systems without the need for transcoding. Compatible programs include Adobe Premiere Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Avid Media Composer.
    Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD Formats
    When proxy or lower-resolution files are suitable for your project, the RED RAVEN can record 2K Apple ProRes 422 or AVID DNxHD LB 8-bit HD video, both at up to 60 fps. Load the resulting files directly into your compatible NLE without spending time transcoding, and start your edits.
    DSMC2 Form Factor
    The RAVEN shares the DSMC2 design common to many RED cameras, enabling you to add the specific components suited to your shooting style. Separately-available items include EVFs, I/O expander modules, battery plates, handles, and more.
  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 Red Touch 4.7" LCD for Select RED Cameras

    Designed for cable free mounting to select RED cameras, the RED Digital Cinema DSMC2 Red Touch 4.7" LCD features 1280 x 720 resolution with good off axis viewing up to 160°. The design of the LCD provides good off-axis viewing up to 80° left, right, up, or down, which means you don't have to be directly aligned with the viewfinder to see an optimal image. The LCD features multi-touch control, with hard navigation buttons on the side.

    With a brightness level of 400cd/m² and a contrast ration of 1000:1 providing a clear image, the RED Touch LCD mounts directly to your camera without any cables needed between the LCD and your camera. It can mount directly onto DSMC2 cameras including the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, EPIC/SCARLET-W, EPIC/SCARLET M-X, EPIC/SCARLET DRAGON, and the RED RAVEN. Built-in mirror and image flip allows monitoring while upside down for special applications.

    The LCD is designed to mount directly to select cameras for cable free operation.
    Used in conjunction with the optional DSMC2 LEMO Adapter Collection, you can mount your DSMC2 display away from the camera body.
    The built-in hinge provides up to 240° of tilt, 90° forward and 150° back, which allows the LCD to fold flat on your camera.
    You can use an optional DSMC2 LEMO Adapter B to mount the LCD to RED EPIC or RED SCARLET cameras.
  • 2 x Core SWX HyperCore Slim for RED V-Mount Battery (14.8V)

    Retaining all the major features of the original HyperCore battery, the HyperCore Slim is simply a slimmer version intended for UAV and gimbal applications as well as any other application requiring a low-profile battery. Rated at 82Wh nominal, the HyperCore Slim is also TSA-friendly, falling under the 98Wh air travel limitations, and this is reinforced by the "Air Travel Compliant" logo on the front of the battery. The Core SWX HyperCore Slim RED (14.8V) is a V-mount version designed to RED's communication protocol. It'll deliver the exact percentage of remaining capacity to RED viewfinders/LCDs.

    The HyperCore cell is known for being able to handle 10A draws for extended periods without diminishing service life, so you can rely on the battery for a long time. Additionally, being such a workhorse, it's perfectly suitable for your RED Scarlet as well as Epic, Weapon, and generally, any other camera we can expect from RED in the future. However, being a about an inch slimmer than the average battery, it also provides the benefit of being able to clear most, if not all, gimbal rails. In addition to this advantage, the HyperCore Slim RED also offers 1,000 charge/discharge cycles, safety sensors, D-tap output, advanced hibernation feature, quick-glance 4-LED gauge on the side, and charge routine management, and an over-molded, rubberized housing that both protects against impacts as well as provides an ergonomic, non-slip handle. Based on a 25W load, the HyperCore Slim RED is estimated to run for approximately 3.2 hours.

    The hibernation feature was designed to minimize issues resulting from self-discharge, and preserve state of charge, leaving you making fewer trips to the charger. This feature consists of an accelerometer tied to a clocking algorithm that gauge inactivity and trigger a deep sleep after 48 hours of continuous non-use. However, upon the slightest movement, the battery comes back to life at maximum capacity.

    The HyperCore Slim RED will charge on your RED charger, as well as IDX, Sony, and Core SWX V-mount chargers, making it a very charger-compatible battery and allowing you to keep any compatible charger you may already own.

    Note: The HyperCore Slim RED can be used on non-RED cameras as well, but you will only be able to get basic information communicated to the viewfinder.

    Core SWX's GP-2LSJ 2-Bay V-Mount Simultaneous Charger can either charge two V-mount batteries, or power a camera system or other studio equipment via its 4-pin XLR 16V output. An integrated recessed handle makes the charger easy to carry when not in use. A 2A charging current ensures that your batteries are charged quickly for redeployment.

    This RED DIGITAL CINEMA RED MINI-MAG has a capacity of 120GB, is compatible with most RED cameras (may require SSD module), and on select cameras can attain write speeds as high as 225 MB/s. The RED MINI-MAG can support simultaneous R3D and Apple ProRes recording, when used with DSMC2 camera systems.

    RED MINI-MAGs are encased in aluminum and offer a compact form factor. They are capable of up to 225 MB/s for even lower REDCODE compression when recording.
    Compatible with DSMC2 camera systems, the RED MINI-MAGs require a RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module for use with your RED EPIC or SCARLET BRAIN. The RED MINI-MAG system requires that your DSMC is on firmware v5.1.34 or later.

    The RED SIDEWINDER Multi-Tool from RED DIGITAL CINEMA is a great workbench companion for your DSMC and DSMC2 gear. The 11 different drivers can be opened to adjust the screws found throughout the modular DSMC and DSMC2 camera systems. Threaded holes on the sides of the multi-tool can hold non-captive screws safely, so they don't get lost while you make adjustments to your camera or add/remove camera modules. To ensure a long life, the nickel-plated, high-carbon steel alloy driver keys are secured to a heat-resistant polymer composite that should survive many a production.


    The RED Digital Cinema RED WORK MAT is a portable flexible non-slip surface for building your camera or for use on a DIT cart. It provides a clean surface to work on and at 18 x 24", it is large enough for you to place your camera's components on during set up or break down. When you are done, the mat is flexible enough that you can just roll it up for storage.
