KOMODO is out now!

The highly anticipated 6K RED KOMODO is now available to order. Here's the breakdown of RED's ultra compact cinema camera.

This thing is small. 



Finally after a long wait the light weight cinema camera is available to purchase. It has been battle tested over the last few months by DPs around the world, ranging from owner operators to high budget TV episodic work. Now that it is available to everyone, we are sure that plenty of magic will be made!

The KOMODO has a global shutter sensor sized at 27.03mm x 14.26mm with a maximum of 6K resolution, shooting internal REDCODE RAW as well as Apple ProRes. Frame rates up to 60FPS at 4k show how versatile this camera will be in the field! The body is 4inch cubed with a weight of only 950g. Since it was originally conceived to be the ultimate "crash cam", its perfect for rigging onto vehicles and small gimbals. You could put this thing anywhere!

The global shutter really sets the KOMODO apart and produces amazing life like imagery. From all the tests that we have seen the image quality and colour science is truly on par with larger production cinema cameras, producing rich colours and true motion. The high dynamic range and variable frame rates add to the sensor quality to produce a complete cinema camera package. 

The Canon RF mount allows for users to easily adapt between different lens mount formats. We have put  the current list of compatible lenses below. 
Recording onto CFAST 2.0 cards at REDCODE RAW in various modes lets the camera fit easily into existing media management pipelines. You can also load in both creative and technical LUTs straight into the camera giving the DP and DIT full control of their look on set.

Breakdown of the different REDCODE modes are here:

HQ: Perfect for VFX, extremely detail scenes, and stills from motion.
MQ: Great for cinema and high-end TV.
LQ: Ideal for TV, online content, documentary, interviews, and long takes.

The Phase-Detect auto focus is a novel addition on a cinema camera of this quality which speaks to the versatility of the KOMODO. The camera can also be easily controlled by the RED Control app on both iOS and Android.

The camera  body as well  as  the pre-bundled pack options  are live on Film Gear South Africa today, and ready to purchase. Check them out below! If you have any questions on the Komodo or would like to have a demo of the camera, please reach out to us! Checkout the packages HERE!
