RED 1 4k DIGITAL CINEMA CAMERA

OUR DIGITAL CINEMA PACKAGE:
RED1, 4K Digital Cinema Camera includes cinema accessories and 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. 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 produces 4K images which are 4 times the size of the 2K digital intermediate of the first Spiderman movie. The resolution, dynamic range, and filmic look of the images have made this camera one of the foremost choices for digital acquisition to create 35mm distribution copies.
RED raw files are now supported directly by edit systems from Apple, Adobe, and Sony Vegas. The RED files have associated quick time movies which allow HD level playback in the field and in offline editing. In addition RED provides free software REDCINE or RED ALERT to color correct and render your footage to the final output format. High end systems such as DaVinci now support RED Raw files directly. It has now become quite easy to edit in a lessor resolution such as HD and then output the files to Cineon for transfer to film or to a direct 4K playback format for digital projection.
