Red One digital camera

New definition of "color" Red

Red One camera shoots in digital Raw format. It shoots natively at 4,096 x 2,304 pixels or 4k resolution, which compared to high definition (HD) video formats gives every second four times more information or 27 times more pixel data than standard definition cameras. This high-resolution process from start to finish gives filmmakers endless possibilities with color correction in post production, especially when comes to shooting on green screen. This means that you can shoot draft preview and know that you will have the luxury of tweaking it greatly later.

Depth of field

The use of prisms in Typical digital video cameras is to split wavelength ranges of light by color and directs it to three separate CCD sensors, which soften pictures. The small CCD or CMOS sensors found in semi-professional and professional high definition cameras put too much of the picture in focus, giving it a flat look. Objects in front of the camera and those 10 feet away are both sharp. Filmmakers hate that.

They say that blurring focal planes is s basic storytelling tool in which director focus specific part of the screen. Every digital cine-camera should identical match image sensor size and shape as close as possible to 35mm motion picture film frame to achieve a benefit of resolution, color range and depth of field.

New cameras from Red company

In 2011, Red Company released new versions of their Ultra High Definition cameras called Red Epic and Red Scarlet. The Red Epic features a 5K sensor capable of capturing 1 to 120 frames per second at full resolution while Red Scarlet features the same sensor but using a smaller and less capable processor.
