Since the DSMC2 form factor is standard, accessories from RED and other manufacturers can be easily attached to accessorize your camera. While other RED cameras use sensors larger than Super 35, the HELIUM is unique in that it allows for high-resolution 8K recording while using classic cinema lenses designed for the Super 35 film format.

I currently own a DSMC2 Scarlet-W and a set of Sony CineAlta Six Lens Kit. Will this brain sensor size work with this lens kit?
Asked by: Christian
The Sony CineAlta Lenses cover a Super 35mm sensor. This camera has a Super 35mm sensor, those lenses will cover the sensor. You will just need to add a PL mount, B&H # WO175900, to the camera. https://bhpho.to/2I7Hzpm
