RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN with GEMINI 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 GEMINI 5K S35 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. Even though the GEMINI sensor has fewer photosites than its HELIUM and MONSTRO brethren, it has a cool trick up its sleeve. Using advanced circuitry designed for the aerospace industry, the GEMINI can switch native sensitivities. Practically speaking, it can operate in both normal and dimly lit scenarios without prematurely blown highlights or excessive noise, respectively. 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 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. Recording rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher.

Note:
This kit does not include a lens or battery.

5K GEMINI S35 Sensor

The GEMINI 5K Super35 sensor features dual sensitivity modes. Use Standard mode for conventional shooting scenarios. Switch to Low Light mode for increased sensitivity, but without the increased noise floor commonly found through signal manipulation.

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.

Color Management

RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 V-LOCK I/O Expander

More than just a way to power your camera, the RED DSMC2 V-LOCK I/O Expander provides a variety of input/output connections in addition to a V-Lock mount for your DSMC2 camera. The Expander is made from magnesium, so it is lightweight yet strong. It enables powering your camera from a V-Mount battery or by an alternate DC source via cable, and you can set it to automatically boot your camera up once power is connected. It provides both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, as well as control and sync outputs.

Built-in USB and auxiliary power outputs enable powering accessories and limiting the number of power splitter and converter boxes hanging from your camera. Audio is not forgotten by RED, and the Expander features both an analog stereo input and a stereo headphone jack. It is compatible with the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, as well as the EPIC/SCARLET-W, and the RAVEN.

Note:
This kit does not include a lens or battery.

Auto Boot-Up on Power-On

The Expander features a physical switch that allows you to enable the camera to automatically boot up when power is applied. This is a useful feature for when the camera is in a difficult-to-access position.

Firmware

Since the V-Lock I/O Expander communicates with your camera, and allows electronic signals and video output, it requires that your DSMC2 camera has firmware v6.2.17 or later installed.
The Expander simplifies your power and output situation when shooting, and can be removed if you want your camera to have a smaller profile for stash-cam, gimbal, or drone shooting.

RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC Canon Mount (Aluminum)

This aluminum RED Digital Cinema DSMC Canon Mount attaches to your DSMC or DSMC2 camera brain providing an EF/EF-S compatible lens port for your camera. Dual locking rings secure your lens in the mount, minimizing play. The mount features captive screws, so you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping a screw into the sensor cavity.

The mount supports electronic communication between the lens and the camera, although not all functions may be supported. RED DSMC mounts are designed to be swapped without requiring a back-focus adjustment.

Note:
This kit does not include a lens or battery.
This lens mount is made from aluminum for a balance between weight and strength
Captive screws won't get lost
Autofocus support available for select EF lenses

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.

Note:
This kit does not include a lens or battery.
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.
