IRVINE, CA – Red Digital Cinema (www.red.com) has introduced the Red Raven, the latest addition to its line of professional cameras. Weighing in at 3.5 pounds, Raven is the company’s lightest and most compact camera, making it well suited for a range of applications, including documentaries, online content creation, indie filmmaking, and for use with drones or gimbals. Pricing starts at $5,950 for the camera Brain only, and complete packages cost under $10,000.
Raven is equipped with a 4K Red Dragon sensor, and is capable of recording Redcode Raw (R3D) in 4K at up to 120fps, and in 2K at up to 240fps. The camera also offers high dynamic range and Red’s color science, and is capable of recording Redcode Raw and Apple ProRes simultaneously.
“Red Raven is a new category in our line up,” says Jarred Land, president of Red Digital Cinema. “It’s a younger, hungrier, more ‘spirited' member of the Red family, with a bit of a chip on its shoulder, ready to take on the entire sub-$10K market with images that users will be incredibly proud of."
Raven will begin shipping in February. Deposits are currently being accepted. Customers will be given a choice of purchasing the Brain only and building a kit that best fits their needs, or choosing a complete package.
