RED 1, 4K Digital Cinema Camera

The RED1 comes in PL Mount. Our camera will mount Canon EOS or FD lenses because we own Canon EOS/FD and Nikon lens mounts. We have geared still lenses which will cover 4K, in Canon FD and EOS mounts. We have a 2K lens adapter to ENG HD or SD lenses. These lenses are limited to shooting on a windowed sensor when the camera is set for 2K acquisition. We have everything necessary to adapt to our Steadicam or camera crane system. The camera moves between the dolly and Steadicam or crane with one clip. This is a pretty serious kit. We have most of the accessories RED makes and additional accessories from Element Technica, AJA, Petroff, and Preston..
