Red has surprised us with a compact mini 6K camera called the Red Komodo.
Red has always been one of the flagship cine cameras available for intermediate and professional cinematographers. Over the years, together with high-end production companies, they produced some of the best feature films to date, such as Lord Of The Rings, Extraction and Greyhound.
However, Red cameras are usually out of reach for the enthusiast filmmaker and content creator. Well... at least until now!
Red has filled a missing gap in their market, and that is of the enthusiast cinematographer who doesn't eye the top of the line Red, but rather a more compact cine camera. Red has now launched exactly that with the Red Komodo 6K mini cine camera.
