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.

Core SWX Hypercore NEO Slim 98Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (V-Mount)
The Hypercore NEO Slim 98Wh Lithium-Ion Battery from Core SWX is a compact 14.8V, 98Wh lithium-ion V-mount battery that supports a constant 12A draw and peak draw of 16A. With this high output, the battery is designed for cine and broadcast applications, but, of course, it can be used for virtually all other applications as well. At only 1.5" thin and weighing just 1.4 lb, it's also highly suited for gimbal, drone, and other mobile applications. The Hypercore NEO Slim has the ergonomic design, large backlit LCD, and protective over-molded rubberized housing that Hypercore batteries have come to be known for over their past releases.
Like previous Hypercores, the battery is microprocessor-driven, ensuring safety and runtime delivery to camera viewfinders or LCDs; but, leveraging the microprocessor, the NEO Slim features an RFID transmitter on the front that lets you monitor the stored battery data via Core SWX's VoltBridgeID iOS app or an RFID reader. Furthermore, the battery has a modular design consisting of less cabling, allowing for increased quality. With the different parts installed separately and securely inside the housing, the chance of failure is reduced in case of drops, and servicing the battery becomes a simpler, more efficient process as the different parts install plug-and-play.
In addition to the large LCD, the Hypercore NEO Slim has an LED gauge on the side where the user can easily glance over at it. Other features include 2000 charge/discharge cycles, hibernation mode, and the ability to communicate to cameras as well as chargers with both one-wire and two-wire protocols. Such an advanced battery wouldn't be complete without peripheral support. The Hypercore NEO Slim provides a SmartTap D-Tap port and a USB port for powering/charging devices. The SmartTap port lets you power any 12 VDC accessory and transmit battery data if the accessory is able to communicate that information.
The Hypercore Slim is also widely compatible with many different chargers. This V-mount version is compatible with RED, IDX, and Sony V-mount chargers, among others.

Sensei OC-CK Optics Care and Cleaning Kit
Keep your optical surfaces clean with the Sensei Optics Care and Cleaning Kit. This kit contains a pack of lens tissues, a lens cleaning pen, a bulb air blower, a paint brush, a lipstick brush, lens cleaning fluid, and a see-through mesh travel case to put everything in. This kit can be used to clean a variety of different optics and glass. You can use the air bulb blower and any of the three supplied brushes to initially remove dust from the surface. Sensei recommends applying a small amount of the alcohol- and ammonia-free cleaning fluid directly to the lens tissue. Then, gently rub in small circular motions to remove stubborn smudges or fingerprints from the glass. For those more stubborn blemishes or smudges, the lens pen is very effective.
