4520X2540 pixelsData to burn. At the heart of Red lives the 12 megapixel Mysterium CMOS sensor, Super 35mm sized, with unparalleled fidelity and flexibility. It combines low noise with superior charge capacity for dynamic range and colour fidelity that allows you to finally have a no excuse option to 35mm film.
Pixel shifting and up-resizing not spoken here.
Typical high-end HD camcorders have 2.1 megapixel sensors and record with 3:1:1 colour subsampled video at up to 30fps. We deliver 11.4M pixels at up to 60fps and record RAW, or 2x over-sampled HD in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 your choice. Thats more than 5 times the amount of information available every second and a vastly superior recording quality. Dont need all that data for your workflow? Dial it back, and keep all the other advantages of the Mysterium Super 35mm cine sized (24.4 x 13.7mm) sensor. You get the same breathtaking Depth of Field and selective focus as found in film cameras. Mysterium boasts a greater than 66db Signal to Noise Ratio thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 11,480,800 pixels deliver resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.
