RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN Overview

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.

Note:
The DSMC2 BRAIN itself does not have a DC In power port. A port expander or power module is required to power the camera. To construct a working configuration for any BRAIN, RED recommends an expander, battery, lens mount, display, and media.

Key Features

  • 35.4MP S35 CMOS sensor for up to 8K-resolution black-and-white (monochrome) images
  • Multiple capture rates including up to 60 fps 8K, 120 fps in 4K, and 240 fps in 2K Full Format
  • Versatile workflow options with REDCODE RAW, ProRes, and DNx recording

  • Up to 300 MB/s data rates with 480 or 960 GB, or 225 MB/s with 120 or 240 GB MINI-MAGs

Having trouble with setting up a second monitor with a HDMI connection with a The Big RD monitor, help!

Hey Kelly, If you are using the side POGO port, it will cut off feed to an HDMI connection or vice versa. If you are not using the side POGO port, there might be an issue with your HDMI port. Please submit a ticket at www.red.com/support Thanks, Andrew

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
