RED Digital Cinema has unveiled the latest addition to its line of professional cameras, RED RAVEN.
Weighing in at 3.5 pounds, RED RAVEN is RED’s lightest and most compact camera, making it an ideal choice for a range of applications including documentaries, online content creation, indie filmmaking, and use with drones or gimbals.
With pricing that starts at $5,950 for the camera BRAIN only, and complete packages under $10,000, RED RAVEN is part of a trend that is seeing professional grade cameras enter the market at lower price points. Sony’s FS7 is another example.
RED RAVEN is equipped with a 4K RED DRAGON sensor, and is capable of recording REDCODE RAW (R3D) in 4K at up to 120 fps and in 2K at up to 240 fps. RED RAVEN also offers incredible dynamic range, RED’s renowned colour science, and is capable of recording REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes simultaneously—ensuring shooters get the best image quality possible in any format.
"RED RAVEN is a new category in our line up,” said Jarred Land, president of Red Digital Cinema. “It’s a younger, hungrier, more ‘spirited' member of the RED family with a bit of a chip on its shoulder, ready to take on the entire sub-$10k market with images that users will be incredibly proud of."
RED RAVEN will begin shipping in February 2016, and deposits will be accepted immediately. Customers will be given a choice of purchasing the BRAIN only and building a kit that best fits their needs, or choosing a complete package.
The RED RAVEN Base I/O Package offers everything content creators need to take their productions to the next level of image quality and professionalism, while the RED RAVEN JETPACK Package is specifically designed for use with handheld gimbals, drones, jibs and cranes.
