This RED DSMC2 DRAGON-X Camera Kit is part of the RED 2018 unified DSMC2 lineup and includes the RED DRAGON-X BRAIN, as well the minimum gear you need to make a functional shooting package. The DRAGON-X BRAIN features a Super35 sensor and can shoot and record at 5K uncropped up to 96 fps. The kit includes the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens and an aluminum Canon EF mount with electrical contacts that pass metadata and allow for electronic control of EF mount lenses. The included V-lock expander module allows you to power the camera and provides HDMI and SDI outputs, as well as other interfaces.
The RED Touch screen mounts directly on the BRAIN with no cables and provides you with a viewing screen, allowing you to set up and control the camera. The IDX batteries power the camera, and the charger allows you to charge both batteries simultaneously. The 480GB RED MINI MAG captures your footage and supports data rates up to 300 MB/s, and the included reader enables transferring your footage off the MINI-MAG. The Outrigger Handle provides a handgrip, and the included case is designed and built to hold your camera and accessories safe during transport and storage.
Bundling high performance raw video recording in a compact camera body, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 BRAIN with DRAGON-X 5K S35 Sensor is part of RED's 2018 unified DSMC2 lineup. 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 you can record to ProRes or DNx as well. 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.
Note: Not all compression ratios are available at all resolutions and frame rates
Distinguished by a uniquely fast and versatile design, the Canon EF-mount Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM is an Art-series zoom, covering wide-angle to normal focal lengths. Separating itself from the pack, this zoom features an exceedingly bright f/1.8 constant maximum aperture, which suits its use in difficult lighting conditions and offers impressive depth of field control throughout the zoom range. The optical design incorporates a series of SLD and aspherical elements, which help to achieve high clarity and sharpness by suppressing various aberrations, color fringing, and distortion. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied, too, which controls lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Balancing the optical merits, this 18-35mm also sports an advanced Hyper Sonic Motor, along with an internal focusing design, to promote fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance.
This aluminum RED Digital Cinema DSMC Canon Mount attaches to your DSMC or DSMC2 camera brain providing an EF/EF-S compatible lens port for your camera. Dual locking rings secure your lens in the mount, minimizing play. The mount features captive screws, so you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping a screw into the sensor cavity. The mount supports electronic communication between the lens and the camera, although not all functions may be supported. RED DSMC mounts are designed to be swapped without requiring a backfocus adjustment.
More than just a way to power your camera, the RED DSMC2 V-LOCK I/O Expander provides a variety of input/output connections in addition to a V-Lock mount for your DSMC2 camera. The Expander is made from magnesium, so it is lightweight yet strong. It enables powering your camera from a V-Mount battery or by an alternate DC source via cable, and you can set it to automatically boot your camera up once power is connected. It provides both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, as well as control and sync outputs.
Built-in USB and auxiliary power outputs enable powering accessories and limiting the number of power splitter and converter boxes hanging from your camera. Audio is not forgotten by RED, and the Expander features both an analog stereo input and a stereo headphone jack. It is compatible with the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, as well as the EPIC/SCARLET-W, and the RAVEN.
Designed for cable-free mounting to select DSMC2 RED cameras, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA Touch 4.7" LCD features 1280 x 720 resolution. The design of the LCD provides good off-axis viewing up to 160°, with 80° left, right, up, or down so you don't have to be directly aligned with the viewfinder to see an optimal image. The LCD features multi-touch control, with hard navigation buttons on the side.
With a brightness level of 400 cd/m² and contrast ration of 1000:1 providing a clear image, the RED Touch LCD mounts directly to your camera without any cables needed between the LCD and your camera. It can mount directly onto DSMC2 cameras including the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, EPIC/SCARLET-W, EPIC/SCARLET M-X, EPIC/SCARLET DRAGON, and the RED RAVEN. A built-in mirror and image flip allow for monitoring while upside down for special applications.
The IDX DUO-C98 96Wh High-Load Battery with D-Tap Advanced, Standard D-Tap & USB Portfeatures a V-mount and is only 2.3" thick, but packs 96Wh of capacity to power your professional devices. It is well suited for handheld gimbal and aerial applications, as well as run-and-gun productions where size and weight can become an issue. Battery data information displays in most camera's viewfinders.
The DUO-C98 can handle a combined load of up to 10A among its V-mount, D-Tap outputs, and USB port. One of the D-Taps can also be used to charge the battery, although that requires an optional charger that is not included. Designed with battery circuit protection against overcharge, over-discharge, over-current, and exposure to high temperatures, providing protection to your battery from the rigors of production. A 5-LED battery life indicator on the side of the battery provides a quick visual indication of charge state of your battery.
The VL-2X 2-Channel V-Mount Charger & Power Supply from IDX provides sequential charging for lithium-ion and NiCad batteries, automatically switching to the second battery after fully charging the first. It delivers up to 2.7A of quick-charge current without the noise of a typical charger thanks to a fanless design. It also features a 4-pin XLR power output that offers up to 36W of DC power when the charger is connected to a wall outlet and your batteries are removed. (The DC output is disabled when a battery is charging.)
This portable desktop charger is designed with reliable internal safety features that protect both the battery and charger from damage should faulty or misused batteries be placed on the charger. It will automatically stop charging if any attached battery reaches an overvoltage condition.
