Mathieu Sern was curious and resourceful enough to mount a 140-year-old lens to a RED Scarlet-W and capture 4K footage.

The result looks amazing - even at the humble 720p that we watched it in.

It seems that RED cameras deliver high-performance and impressive quality even through a grandpa lens…or rather, a great-grandpa lens.

This is only a taste of ‘RED’ quality – can you imagine what the latest REDs can do?
