KOMODO-X is the next evolution in the KOMODO family, multiplying the frame rates, dynamic range, and usability of the original KOMODO to break new grounds.


KOMODO-X features the same sized 6K S35 Global Shutter sensor as the KOMODO, but with a ground up redesign and key architecture improvements.

Improved detail and color in shadows, paired with double the frame rates at 6K 80P and 4K 120P makes KOMODO-X an even more powerful tool for creatives.


With key improvements for professional workflows, the KOMODO-X now shares many features with the DSMC3 line while still maintaining the impressively small KOMODO form factor. An integrated micro V-Lock allows for direct attachment of professional micro V-Lock batteries without the need for adapters and is also compatible with the upcoming RED Pro I/O Module to provide auxiliary power and compatibility with full sized V-Lock and Gold Mount batteries.

A reinforced RF lens mount with locking mechanism maintains the flexibility of toolless switching between multiple lens mount types, while providing the stability and rigidity professionals need. KOMODO-X is also fully compatible with /i PL lenses using the RED® RF to PL Adapter.

12G SDI, full sized DC-IN, USB Type-C, and a phantom powered locking audio connector further enables KOMODO-X to seamlessly integrate into any professional workflow. KOMODO-X is compatible with DSMC3 RED® 5-Pin to Single 3.5mm Adapter to support existing KOMODO microphones, or the DSMC3 RED® 5-Pin to Dual XLR Adapter for general purpose XLR microphones.

An integrated 2.9” LCD allows for simplified control and image preview in compact setups. For more precise monitoring, KOMODO-X supports the DSMC3 RED® Touch 7.0" LCD which provides a daylight viewable, high-resolution, camera top monitor and control solution without the mess of cables.


KOMODO-X is a powerful platform for any IP based workflow, from virtual production to live broadcast. With integrated USB Type-C connection and built-in Wi-Fi, remotely control the camera using RED Control or RED Control Pro, as well as IP media offloading using FTPS or in-camera Cloud Uploading functionality (Frame.io and S3). In addition, KOMODO-X supports frame-accurate PTP synchronization or tri-level genlock sensor sync with the ability to offset on the fly to support multi-camera LED volume productions.

KOMODO-X also supports RED Connect, a licensed feature that allows for live broadcasting of 6K images directly from the camera over IP, expanding RED’s cinematic imagery into boundless new uses.
