Carrying on the legacy of the revolutionary RED ONE®, SCARLET-W brings an unparalleled level of accessibility to content creators everywhere. SCARLET-W combines RED’s intuitive camera design—including integrated mounting points, interchangeable lens mounts, simultaneous REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD recording formats, intelligent OLPF system, and in-camera 3D LUT outputs—with a RED DRAGON® sensor to provide a solution that blends flexibility and accessibility with high-end performance.
The RED DRAGON sensor allows shooters to get the best shot every time. SCARLET-W harnesses the massive dynamic range of the RED DRAGON sensor to produce cinema-quality images rich with natural color. SCARLET-W’s Monochrome camera option gives shooters the ability to capture black and white images that contain enhanced resolution and heightened light sensitivity. SCARLET-W gives you the ability to capture your vision exactly as you see it: 5K 2.4:1 at 60 frames per second (fps), 4K 2.4:1 at 150 fps, or 2K 2.4:1 at 300 fps with REDCODE RAW.
RED's innovative modular design brings maximum flexibility to every professional, providing adaptability in every situation you encounter. Interchangeable lens mount options give you the capability to change your perspective at a moment’s notice, while the full range of DSMC2™ module adaptors lets you dial in your camera rig to exact specifications.
RED’s commitment to providing a seamless workflow persists with SCARLET-W. RED’s innovative REDCODE RAW recording format, also known as R3D®, enables shooters to maintain visual integrity throughout post production with non-destructive editing capabilities. Compatible with most professional-grade editing programs, REDCODE RAW easily adapts to your preferred system. Additionally, shooters have the freedom to simultaneously capture options in both R3D and Avid DNxHD or Apple ProRes file formats.
The rugged, durable design of SCARLET-W makes it an ideal option for wherever your journey takes you. Whether you configure your camera to be as lightweight as possible or work with a complex studio configuration, SCARLET-W allows you to feel secure in its abilities to capture cinema-quality images in any circumstance. A Base I/O V-Lock package option comes with the key components necessary for you to get out and start shooting, allowing you to immediately set your production in motion.
SCARLET-W’s introduction reinforces RED’s commitment to placing adaptable, high-end creative tools in the hands of professionals everywhere. SCARLET-W offers an upgrade path to WEAPON® and uses the DSMC2 line of accessories—compatible with both WEAPON and RED RAVEN™ cameras—giving shooters the option to move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear. RED makes OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE®.

Tech specs reflect both current and projected information. Everything is subject to change.
1. REDCODE values and max frame rates may vary based on selected acquisition format, aspect ratio, project time base, Lookaround setting, and SSD. For more information on available REDCODE compression settings for all formats, see the DSMC Media Operation Guide.
2. For more information on available acquisition formats, see the DSMC Operation Guides.
3. Avid DNxHD/HR Codecs recording support added to DSMC2 firmware v6.3 or later.
4. Third-party non-linear editing (NLE) applications may have limited compatibility with R3D files.
5. Estimated recording times represent averages over the course of a typical recording to REDCODE RAW only with Pre-Record disabled and may vary depending on subject matter. It is always recommended to perform your own tests using typical camera settings and shooting conditions.
