We are also pleased to announce additional DSMC2 accessory options to help shooters expand their arsenal. Some of the new products included in the announcement are:

  • DSMC2 Side Handle: Ideal for shooters who prefer a compact handheld configuration, RED's newest side handle uses a navigation wheel and customizable settings to place menu functionality at your fingertips.

  • DSMC2 Jetpack-SDI Expander: An I/O expander purposely designed for aerials, gimbals, and other lightweight/remote configurations using SDI connections.

  • DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module: Module option that integrates with a variety of expander modules to power industry-standard V-Lock batteries while maintaining flexible I/O options.

  • RED PRO Touch 7.0" LCD: Designed for off-camera configurations, this display option offers remote camera control in a high-definition viewing experience.

As of today, users can now test drive RED's proprietary REDCODE RAW file format (R3D) with the new R3D Sample Page. The R3D Sample Page provides footage from numerous camera options and lighting conditions, giving users insights into the flexibility of R3D files when incorporated into a variety of industry-standard post production workflows.
