RED 1, 4K Digital Cinema Camera
upgraded with the new low light imager.
Our Camera includes cinema accessories such as adapters to 2K with HD Lenses. We own, lens adapters and prime or zoom Canon Fd/Eos geared lenses which cover 4K. The RED1 PL mount allows any third party cinema lens. We have put Zeiss superspeeds and Cooke S4s on to good effect. Our support package includes: 8 gig CF cards, 320 Gig raid drives, matt box, follow focus, Preston remote follow focus, and almost every RED accessory. We have configured this camera for instant moves between dolly, sticks, crane or Steadicam.
This camera records in a format over 4 times as large in pixels as HD. When the images are reduced to HD or SD after editing, and effects are added, the result is truly amazing image quality. It also makes possible converting a wide shot to an HD closeup. This is certainly the format to shoot, to give your media archival quality which will be suitable for years to come.
