The RED KOMODO is a 6K Digital Cinema Camera in an ultra-compact form. For example, it weighs just 900 grams (2.1 lb) and measures roughly 4 x 4 x 4″. Included is a Canon RF lens mount and the KOMODO 19.9MP Super35 CMOS Global Shutter sensor. This sensor can create images with 16+ stops dynamic range and eliminates rolling shutter artefacts. Finally, record 6K at 40 fps, 5K at 48 fps, 4K at 60 fps. Also 2K at 120 fps in Redcode RAW.
CFast 2.0 media provides data rates up to 280 MB/s. Also, a top 2.9″ 1440 x 1440 touchscreen makes it easy to configure and monitor footage. Alternatively use the Red Control system with an iOS or Android device for preview and settings. This is possible through integrated 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi. In addition, wired control is also possible via the USB Type-C port and optional adapters.
The Canon RF lens mount allows KOMODO compatibility with a vast range of lenses through the use of adapters. Also, the mount will natively support mechanical RF lenses and mechanical EF lenses via the included adapter. Finally, optional electronic EF-to-RF mount adapters will support electronic Canon EF-mount lenses.
A first for Red is the ability to use Phase-Detect Autofocus (PDAF) with compatible lenses. This includes adapted Canon EF-mount lenses used with a separately available EF-to-RF adapter. In addition, use the touchscreen for quickly changing focus and selecting subjects.
Komodo has the ability to capture up to 6K at 40 fps using the powerful 16-bit Redcode RAW format. Also, simplified compression options give users a choice between HQ, MQ, and LQ. For example, each compression is variable from low to high. In addition, Raw supports 5K 48 fps, 4K 60 fps, and 2K 120 fps. Alternatively record in Apple ProRes 422 HQ and standard 422. This is available with DCI 4K up to 60 fps or DCI 2K up to 120 fps.
Red’s KOMODO features an array of ports and connections. For example, integrated stereo microphones and a 3.5mm input for audio. Also, an EXT port provides Genlock, timecode, GPIO and RS232. Finally, a 12G-SDI port will support up to DCI 4K at 60 fps in 10-bit 4:2:2.
