Actually we didn't want to report bit by bit about RED's teaser droplets coming to Komodo, but we find the latest information about the sensor very interesting:
Thus, the sensor with 27.03 x 14.25mm has a rather unusual aspect ratio of 1.9:1. Thus, the width of the sensor is clearly above APS-C/S35 (24mm), which corresponds to a 35mm cropping factor of 1.33. The sensor has a rather unusual aspect ratio of 1.9:1. The maximum native resolution of the 20 megapixel sensor is 6,144 x 3,240 Sensel. The pixel pitch is thus 4.4 µm. (For comparison: The Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K has a sensor size of 3.75 µm.)
A format between 35mm/LF and S35 should please many potential users, especially as the Canon lenses for the RF mount in this reduced image circle should provide an almost impeccable imaging performance.
The small flange focal length of the RF mount theoretically even allows the development of a special speed booster for the Komodo, which among other things could boost EF full format lenses to crop factors below 1, because the 1.9:1 format still lies up to approx. 38.5mm wide in the image circle of 35mm/full format. This would correspond to a horizontal crop factor of 0,93:
We have recently added all already available www.slashcam.de/artikel/News/Die-neuesten-Infos-zu-REDs-neuer-Komodo-Kamera--6K-mit-40-fps-und-ein-Global-Shutter-Modus---kommt-sie-bald-.html on slashCAM (information about RED Komodo summarized) and will add the sensor information to the article.
