Want to know what the hype is all about? You have heard that the Red Dragon sensor is a camera ahead of its time, how good it is in low lighting. Come and join us on August 20 as we will be putting a Red Epic MX sensor and Red Epic Dragon sensor camera side by side. The event will be held in our studio where you will enjoy a finger buffet and beverages. See for yourself what each camera can do and their strengths. You’ll get hands on experience and the possibility to ask questions to any of our experts. Planning your next production? This could be an invaluable FREE testing session before you make a decision.
DxOMark, a “comprehensive RAW-based image quality measurement database and a set of scores to evaluate and compare digital cameras and lenses,” recently evaluated RED’s new 6K DRAGON sensor since it has the ability to pull extremely high-quality still images from video. The result, which probably comes as no surprise to RED themselves, measured the DRAGON as the best overall sensor they’ve ever tested, breaking 100 points on their scale.
Every 6K frame is a 19 megapixel RAW image, which is up to 9x more pixels than 1080p HD. The amount of picture detail found in a 6K image goes beyond that of 35mm, comparing only to 65mm in image density. This means more precise VFX plates, reframing flexibility, and less aliasing artifacts and moiré. Even when outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD, your images will be cleaner and crisper compared to those captured at lower resolutions. When it comes to resolution, bigger is better.
