RED has just announced their newest digital cinema camera body, the SCARLET-W, which represents the next step up in the RED family. The SCARLET-W also features RECODE RAW and ProRes file formats but is a bit more feature rich than the RAVEN with interchangeable lens mounts and greater resolution. At at a lower price point than the WEAPON, it ideal for those who only need 5K resolution.
The SCARLET-W uses RED’s DSMC2 platform and features interchangable OLPFs (utilizing RED’s intelligent OLPF system). Also present is the ability to load and output 3D LUTs. A monochrome version is also available. See the table below for a list of resolutions and frame rates.
