RED Komodo: First models are delivered and first footage on the net

RED Komodo: First models are delivered and first footage on the net

[11:26 thu,11.June 2020   by ]    

RED had recently announced the delivery of multicoloured pre-release versions of its new compact Super 35 6K Komodo camera, now several of the lucky (RED&s chosen) buyers - including cameramen Phil Holland, Philip Grossman and Tim Daust - have published their first test clips on the net - including a comparison of the RED Komodo with the RED Helium. However, the used firmware 1.0.0. is not yet final, but only the release candidate 3, only the black production models come with the final 1.0.0 firmware.

RED Komodo Q&A
Extremely informative (and long!) is the recording of an approximately 6-hour live stream in the form of a Q&A from RED&s Jarred Land with some of the new owners (Phil Holland, Scott Balkum, Philip Grossman, Jason Diamond, Tim Daust and Curtis Boggs )- the following questions are answered among others What is the native ISO? What is the antenna for? How good is the autofocus? How strong is the aliasing? How does the RED Komodo relate to the Alexa Mini? ...

The cameraman Phil Holland has not only uploaded a demo clip including color plates to YouTube, but also offers a cutout of it in the R3D original to Download (2.5GB), alternatively you can simply download some snapshots from there (80 MB). Here more about his setup and reports also about his first experiences with the Komodo.

Remote control via RED Control App

RED&s Jarred Land on Instagram has also released a video demonstrating the possibilities of wireless remote control of the RED Komodo using the RED Control App.

Land also gives advice to owners of the RED Komodo, which CFast 2.0 cards are suitable for the Komodo: all 256/512 GB top models from Angelbird, Sony, Sandisk and Prograde should work - as smaller capacities often correspond to lower speeds, the use of these models is less safe.
