Bundling high-performance raw video recording in a compact camera body, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN with MONSTRO 8K VV Sensor is part of the 2018 unified DSMC2 lineup and is designed to be built up the way you want, to tell your story in almost any way possible. Since the DSMC2 form factor is standard, accessories from RED and other manufacturers can be easily attached to accessorize your camera. The MONSTRO 8K full-frame sensor boasts up to 17 stops of dynamic range and can record the full image circle of full-frame 35mm lenses. You can also use Super35 lenses with a windowed capture area for high frame rate recording. Sitting in front of the full-frame sensor is an interchangeable PL mount. This way you can use industry-standard cinema lenses right out of the box or exchange the mount to use alternative photo and video lenses.
REDCODE RAW is the format of choice for DSMC2 cameras. RED's versatile raw codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media. Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The DSMC2 cameras use sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions, requiring wider or smaller-format lenses to compensate for the additional crop. The MONSTRO 8K VV offers recording rates ranging from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher.
Note: Not all compression ratios are available at all resolutions and frame rates
