Four sensor options are available for the RED DSMC2® BRAIN, allowing you to achieve high-performance results according to your style of production.

 

MONSTRO 8K VV 

This flagship sensor will provide blockbuster-level performance through Full Frame lenses - delivering 17+ stops of dynamic range.

> 35.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

> 40.96mm x 21.60mm (Diag: 46.31 mm)

 

HELIUM 8K S35

Offering 8K resolution in a Super 35 format – achieving the highest DxO score ever*.

*(This Score represents the average performance of lenses combined with the sensor - source)

> 35.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

> 29.90 mm x 15.77 mm (Diag: 33.80 mm)

 

HELIUM 8K S35 MONOCHROME

Capture 8K black and white motion (and stills).

> 35.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

29.90 mm x 15.77 mm (Diag: 33.80 mm)

> 8K 2.4:1 at up to 75 fps

> 8K Full Format at 60 fps

 

GEMINI 5K S35

Boasting Dual Sensitivity Modes, this GEMINI™ is RED’s highest-sensitivity sensor, delivering brilliant low-light performance for a cleaner image – of minimal noise and rich detail.

> 15.4 Megapixel Dual Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

> 30.72 mm x 18 mm (Diag: 35.61 mm)

 

Each of these sensors, in combination with the DSMC2 BRAIN, are meticulously designed to capture your subject matter and produce it as high-quality, visually impressive content.

More specifically, the MONSTRO and HELIUM sensors achieve a level of cinematic beauty that has advanced the industry as a whole – offering a resolution 4 times that of 4K and 17 times that of HD.

The GEMINI (first designed for use in space) allows you to stretch the boundaries of useable light through the performance of its Dual Sensitivity Modes. As RED’s highest sensitivity sensor so far, it’s designed to pull the most out of low-light scenes and shadows.

The DSMC2 BRAIN is capable of data write speeds of 300 MB/s, and can simultaneously record in REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD.

This BRAIN is compatible with cable-free peripherals, an integrated media bay, wireless control and a growing arsenal of RED and Third-Party accessories.

Its interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts further add to this BRAIN’s high versatility.
