RED ScarletRED Scarlet hire | RED Scarlet Camera
This camera is ideally designed to shoot regular speeds in 4K mode and slow motion of up to 120p in 1K mode. *** Note that this has been upgraded from 60p in 1K mode from June 2012 ***.
With a 35mm PL lens mount allows you to take advantage of beautiful film lenses - choose from Cooke S4, Zeiss UltraPrime, Zeiss SuperSpeed or MasterPrime lenses. Alternatively, by fitting an EOS lens mount means that you can also fit EOS or ZF-mounted Zeiss and Nikon stills lenses.
With the innate ability to capture 5K REDCODE RAW stills and 4K motion, resolution sustains itself as a dominant gene in the RED family. Scarlet-X functions as a flexible device, utilizing HDRx and interchangeable lens mounts to provide you with options in a world that’s always changing. 5K burst modes snap up to 12 fps with 4K reaching up to 30 fps—helping you capture every perfect moment. All of the finest qualities of cinema and photography have now aligned, letting you take advantage of the best of both worlds with Scarlet-X.
Up to 18 stops of Latitude with HDRx
The Scarlet usese the Mysterium-X Sensor shared with the EPIC-X. This is a 14 Megapixel chip (5120x2700 pixels) with 13.5 stops of latitude and up to 18stops with the HDRx mode whereby the camera effectively takes a dual exposure and you have the ability to decide how best to take the best information from the fast and the slow exposure at either end of the latitude spectrum.
Amazingly, if you use this with a Canon EF mount and use Canon EOS autofocus lenses, then the Scarlet will function as an autofocus camera!

Although the RED workflow is very well established but the truth is that sometimes, the quality of the RED codec is too good for small screen productions and it can sometimes be easier to bypass the on-board record function using RED codec and RED post production route if you are shooting for TV or even the internet!
If this applies to you, then do consider that the Ki pro mini external recorder and Sound devices pix 240 shoots onto Compact Flash cards and will record a high end HD at very high qualities. As with the RED, the quality recorded is adjustable and you can set the external recorders to shoot from 50Mb/s up to 220Mb/second in 10 bit 4:2:2! for just an additional £50 per day.
In English, this means that you can record HD images directly out of the camera and and record onto an external recorder with no rendering; then insert this media into Final Cut Pro for immediate use with no rendering - very easy! The 'usable proxy' setting allows the camera output to be recorded and include such metadata information such as the clip name and timecode for later online conversion and de-bayerning if you want to.
