RED KOMODO 6K - now available for order

RED KOMODO 6K - now available for order

[09:21 wed,14.October 2020   by ]    

With an announced delivery time of 3-4 weeks the long awaited RED KOMODO 6K can now be ordered on the RED homepage. RED wanted to deliver already at the beginning of the year, but now the big rollout has been delayed. With hundreds of handmade beta-models of the camera, RED allegedly could still collect a lot of positive input for the serial production.
It is now said to cost 6,000 dollars, which sounds almost ridiculous for a RED camera. As a unique selling proposition compared to the competition, the KOMODO has a global shutter sensor, which should not show any loss of dynamics compared to rolling shutter models. In case of fast movements like for example action shots, nothing should bend in the picture. In the technical data, RED once again very confidently indicates 16+ f-stops dynamic, which was not taken too seriously with the other models so far. But if the dynamic is on the level of the other current RED models, this alone would be a small sensation in itself.


The sensor is slightly wider than typical S35 sensors (27.03 mm x 14.26 mm, diagonal: 30.56mm) and has a native resolution of 6144 x 3240 sensors. The recording formats are probably the biggest limitation compared to more expensive cameras:
max. 40 fps in 6K 17:9 (6144 x 3240),
max. 48 fps in 5K 17:9 (5120 x 2700)
max. 60 fps in 4K 17:9 (4096 x 2160)
max. 120 fps in 2K 17:9 (2048 x 1080)
What also makes the KOMODO very desirable in our eyes (and is extremely untypical for RED): It can record on standard, relatively cheap CFast cards. In addition it has a standard 12G SDISDI im Glossar erklärt connector for video output on an external recorder, video preview monitor or viewfinder with up to 4096 x 2160 in 4:2:24:2:2 im Glossar erklärt with a maximum of 60p. And also for the batteries, standard BP-9XX models can now be used, which can be docked in a double pack on the back of the camera.


It is also worth mentioning that despite the RF mount, the camera will only be able to autofocus with adapted EF lenses, and not even exceptionally well ("Ours is not rock star autofocus."). If we understand the small print correctly, active Canon RF-Mount optics on the KOMODO RF-Mount will not even work at all. And that would be all RF-Lenses from Canon itself. Quote:
"The KOMODO 6K has an adaptable RF lens mount. KOMODO requires a lens mount adapter, i.e. RF to EF, RF to PL, in order to shoot, RF to EF Mechanical Adapter included with camera".
So you still have to use a lens mount adapter on your camera to use lenses. A passive RF to EF adapter is included with the camera. One of the most interesting options is certainly CANON DROP-IN FILTER MOUNT ADAPTER WITH VARIABLE ND FILTER, which you can order from RED for . This gives the KOMODO a quasi-integrated, variable ND filter with an active EF-Mount adapter, which can also accept other alternative Canon filters.
In Germany the KOMODO costs without VAT with pre-order up-to-date with 2-4 weeks delivery time 5450 euro.
