    New KOMODO 6K S35 Camera System Now Available

    October 13, 2020, 9:14 pm
    RED DIGITAL CINEMA®’s new KOMODO™ 6K camera system is now available to order.

    The highly anticipated KOMODO 6K comes to market after extensive engineering to incorporate production-tested innovations, including a breakthrough global shutter sensor (27.03mm x 14.26mm) that maintains RED’s high standard of image quality and dynamic range. The camera is packaged in a small 4-cubic-inch (101.6 mm) form factor and weighs only 2.1 pounds (0.95 kgs). Joining RED’s product lineup in its own category, KOMODO includes an enviable list of features designed for professional filmmakers and content creators who want high-end visuals in an easy-to-use, compact, and versatile camera.

    “KOMODO has turned into quite the beast,” says Jarred Land, President of RED Digital Cinema. “This tiny chameleon of a camera packs in amazing resolution, dynamic range and image quality with a global shutter that has allowed filmmakers to capture footage in ways never thought possible.”

    KOMODO captures 6K at 40 fps, 6K WS at 50 fps, and 4K at 60 fps. Highlights of the camera include an RF mount for users to leverage adaptors for EF, PL and other lens systems, including anamorphic lenses, for maximum creative flexibility; a phase-detect based autofocus control on the integrated, color LED touchscreen display that simplifies monitoring and menu navigation; and new streamlined REDCODE® RAW settings (HQ, MQ, and LQ compression options) enhancing the user experience for various shooting needs. Additional features include compatibility with CFAST 2.0 recording media, 4K SDI output, built-in wireless capabilities, and connectivity via the all new RED Control app, which is available now for iOS devices and coming soon on Android. 

    KOMODO comes to market after extensive testing by many of the industry’s leading creatives, among them, renowned filmmaker Michael Bay, avid storyteller and artist Jason Momoa, and Emmy-nominated cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt, ASC. 

    “The sensor is beautiful,” says Bay. “I always wanted something this small, this sophisticated in terms of a high-quality image. It’s very lightweight; very handheld.”

    Messerschmidt notes, “There is no other camera on the market with a global shutter that is this size and this versatile. And yet there are no quality compromises.”

    Momoa put the KOMODO camera to the test in the frozen tundra of New Jersey while shooting footage for Harley-Davidson. On the size and quality of the camera, he remarks, “It’s like cinema in the palm of your hands.”

    Additionally, a dedicated community of partners worked with RED to bring KOMODO and KOMODO accessories to market, including Angelbird, CoreSWX, Fool Control, Gates Housing, KipperTie, SmallHD, and Wooden Camera, among others. Adobe, DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut, Assimilate, Autodesk, Avid, and Colorfront all offer post-production support for KOMODO via RED’s latest SDK.

    Priced at $5,995, the groundbreaking KOMODO is ideal for a wide range of filming situations. Studio productions can use KOMODO as a B, C, or D camera. Its small size also makes it a natural fit for gimbals, drones, cranes, remote heads, and more. For content creators at all levels, KOMODO’s user-friendly system combined with RED’s unrelenting commitment to image quality provides the ability to ramp up production value, or easily venture into the RED ecosystem for the first time. 

    The KOMODO 6K includes:
    •KOMODO 6K camera brain
    •AC power adaptor 45W 
    •1x RF to EF mechanical lens adapter
    •Mini world travel adaptor kit 

    RED is also launching two pre-bundled pack options:

    This pre-bundled setup is perfect for content creators and run and gun operators. Including KOMODO 6K with the Wing Grip and RF to EF adapter with ND filter. Also included is media and media reader, as well as a PTap-to-power cable and timecode cable.
