RED Digital Cinema has been showcasing its 6K RED DRAGON sensor at Wildscreen 2014 this week, the world’s largest and most prestigious international wildlife and environmental film festival. This is the first time that RED has exhibited at the festival, taking place in Bristol and closing today.
RED EPICs are currently used extensively by the BBC Natural History Unit, were used to film Wild Brazil which aired earlier this year, and captured much of Hidden Kingdoms. RED DRAGON footage from BBC Natural History Unit projects currently in production has been shown by RED at Wildscreen.
The 6K RED DRAGON sensor boasts over 19 megapixels, a new colour science and an incredible dynamic range, the company claims, further blurring the line between motion and still cameras.
RED is not only breaking new ground in photography image capture – with DRAGON receiving the highest DxO Mark sensor rating ever – it is also offering more tactical options for photographers. The newly reworked REDCINE-X PRO provides RAW workflow and now features frame tagging, so shooters can mark and access specific frames while shooting. Also new within this version of REDCINE-X PRO is A.D.D. (Advanced Dragon Debayer), a new algorithm for DRAGON that is designed to analyse every pixel to create the best frame possible.
