Designed for demanding use in the studio and on location, the all-in-one PL-mount RED RANGER MONSTRO 8K VV from RED DIGITAL CINEMA features a unibody design with integrated inputs and outputs, 24V power output, a 5-pin XLR audio input, a shimmed PL mount, and a larger built-in fan for improved thermal performance. With a unibody aluminum design and an integrated V-mount battery plate, this 8K capture solution is ideal for rental house and high-end production use as well as for individual users. The MONSTRO 8K VV full-frame sensor boasts up to 17 stops of dynamic range and can record the full image circle of full-frame 35mm lenses. You can also use Super35 lenses with a windowed capture area for high frame rate recording.
RED’s versatile REDCODE RAW codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media. Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The DSMC2 cameras use sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions, requiring wider or smaller-format lenses to compensate for the additional crop. Recording rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher.
