The HELIUM 8K S35 Monochrome DSMC2 BRAIN from RED DIGITAL CINEMA is part of RED's 2018 unified DSMC2 lineup. It captures rich, 8K resolution black-and-white footage. Housed in the modular DSMC2 camera body, the monochrome CMOS sensor features a dynamic range of 16.5 stops, and the ability to record in REDCODE RAW (R3D) and ProRes or DNxHR/HD simultaneously. Capture black-and-white (monochrome) images at rates up to 60 fps in full-format 8K 8192 x 4320, or overcrank up to 75 fps in the 2.4:1 aspect ratio; additional frame rate choices include 120 fps in 4K, and up to 240 fps in 2K full format.
With up to 4x greater resolution than 4K capture and over 17x more than HD, the HELIUM 8K S35 Monochrome provides the detail that enables cropping, re-centering, and additional tweaking in your post process while maintaining vivid, crisp imagery. Data rates up to 300 MB/s can be reached when using 480 or 960 GB MINI-MAGs, or up to 225 MB/s with 120 or 240 GB MINI-MAGs (available separately).
The HELIUM 8K S35 Monochrome's DSMC2 form is compatible with separately available RED DSMC2 and third-party components including cable-free OLEDs, wireless remote control, media stations, power options, and various mounting solutions. A standard OLPF (optical low-pass filter) is included with the BRAIN, providing IR protection and glare reduction.
