RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN EF-Mount Overview

  • 1Description

The RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 DRAGON-X Starter Kit is assembled to provide you with a basic kit with which you can add the lens of your choice and go shoot. The Super 35-sized DRAGON-X sensor offers more than 16 stops of dynamic range. The BRAIN can shoot at up to 240 fps in 2K, 120 fps in DCI 4K, and can capture in a variety of ProRes and REDCODE RAW formats. The included 4.7" LCD screen is a necessity for navigating and making menu selection while providing you with a view screen. The included EF mount allows you to use Canon EF-mount lenses.

The battery module allows you to power the camera BRAIN via the included V-mount batteries. The 120GB RED MINI MAG attaches to the integrated SSD interface of the BRAIN and features a maximum write speed of 225 MB/s. After shooting, use the RED MINI MAG READER to off-load your footage to your computer. The included Universal Handle provides a simple way to carry your camera and doesn't interfere with either the LCD or your batteries. The RED SIDEWINDER multi-tool has everything you need to work with your RED camera BRAIN, and the included rubber work mat provides a portable non-slip surface useful when assembling the camera or changing the mount.

  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN with DRAGON-X 5K S35 Sensor (2018 Unified DSMC2 Lineup)

    Bundling high performance raw video recording in a compact camera body, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN with DRAGON-X 5K S35 Sensor is part of RED's 2018 unified DSMC2 lineup. Nearly limitless lens options are available for the DSMC2 system. While this camera requires a separately available lens mount, DSMC lens mounts themselves are offered in different varieties for compatibility with a wide array of lens systems.

    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 you can record to ProRes or DNx as well. 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. Recording rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher.

    DRAGON-X 5K S35 Sensor
    The DRAGON-X 5K Super 35mm sensor is a 13.8MP CMOS sensor that features a dynamic range of 16.5+ stops and a resolution of 5120 x 2700.
    REDCODE RAW
    The cornerstone of RED's workflow is the robust REDCODE RAW file format. Using wavelet compression with ratios ranging from 2:1 to 22:1, REDCODE RAW offers the versatility of raw files without the overwhelming storage requirements of uncompressed image data. Since REDCODE RAW has been around since the days of the RED ONE cinema camera, many common NLE software programs including Adobe Premiere Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Avid Media Composer can import and edit REDCODE RAW footage without transcoding, saving production time in the edit suite. Capture rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher options.

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

    Apple ProRes and Avid DNx Formats
    For projects requiring proxy files or quicker turnaround times than raw files permit, Apple ProRes or Avid DNx formats can be recorded at 4K and 2K resolutions directly to the onboard MINI-MAG media. Since these debayered video files can be recorded alongside the raw files, no extra time is required for transcoding the proxies. Bring the debayered files straight into your NLE and begin editing.
    DSMC2 Form Factor
    Like the preceding DSMC cameras, RED designed the DSMC2 camera line to be modular to fit a wide range of production workflows. Smaller and lighter than the original DSMC design, when stripped down to the BRAIN itself, you have a high-resolution gimbal workhorse. Likewise, add DSMC2 modules to the rear to gain professional I/O connections and battery power. Many other parts of the DSMC2 design are meant to be interchangeable. Swap out the lens mounts to open up new libraries of lenses. Exchange the included standard OLPF (Optical Low-Pass Filter) for alternative image renderings at the sensor level. Mount an EVF without cables that can get snagged, or use a separately available adapter to attach RED LCDs via LEMO cable. Since the DSMC2 form factor is standardized, any accessories that you have for this DSMC2 body will work with any other DSMC2 body, should you upgrade or acquire an additional body in the future.

  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA Touch 4.7" LCD for Select DSMC2 RED Cameras

    Designed for cable-free mounting to select DSMC2 RED cameras, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA Touch 4.7" LCD features 1280 x 720 resolution. The design of the LCD provides good off-axis viewing up to 160°, with 80° left, right, up, or down so 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 400 cd/m² and 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. A built-in mirror and image flip allow for 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.

  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 V-Mount Battery Module

    The DSMC2 V-Mount Battery Module from RED DIGITAL CINEMA is a low-profile, cable-free module that enables you to power your DSMC2 BRAIN and camera accessories using RED BRICK, REDVOLT-V, and other standard V-lock batteries. The V-lock mount and protected release button ensure ongoing power even during mobile shoots.

    This DSMC2 battery module offers a D-Tap connector on top and an auxiliary port on the side for powering peripherals and accessories. Together, the D-Tap and auxiliary connectors support a maximum combined current of 3.8A. The module also offers a DC input port that can be used to power the camera system when the module is attached to the BRAIN. When DC input power is supplied to the module and the camera is turned off, this module can also trickle-charge the attached V-lock battery.

    Manufactured from robust aluminum alloy, this DSMC2 battery module offers a blend of utility and power support in a lightweight and space-saving form factor. It is an ideal power solution for use with most DSMC2 expanders. Alternatively, connect the module directly to your DSMC2 BRAIN for a low-profile, battery-only power configuration.
