SCARLET-W represents our passion and dedication to carrying on the legacy started by RED ONE®—disrupting the industry and delivering a camera of unparalleled quality and acessibility to content creators everywhere. And now RED has changed the industry again, with the SCARLET-W, powered by a REDDRAGON® sensor and featuring interchangeable lens mounts and OLPFs.
SCARLET-W harnesses the RAW performance, advanced color science, and impressive dynamic range of the RED DRAGON sensor. Capable of shooting motion and stills in 5K 2.4:1 at up to 60 frames per second (fps), or 5K Full Frame at 50 fps, SCARLET-W offers 13.8 megapixels of resolution for creative control, special effects, and post-production mastery. As part of RED’s latest generation DSMC2 line, SCARLET-W also features numerous enhancements including simultaneous REDCODE RAW® and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD recording, integrated smart connectors for cable-free peripheral attachment, and faster read/write speeds for lower compression—all in a small and lightweight form factor.
Designed around the innovative modular architecture of the DSMC2™ family, SCARLET-W is compatible with all of your DSMC2 accessories. Whether you are shooting with a single camera—or an entire arsenal, RED’s modular approach ensures that your DSMC2 accessories are compatible with SCARLET-W, RED RAVEN™, and WEAPON® cameras.
Just one of the advantages of the DSMC2 lineup is the integration of the intelligent DSMC2 OLPF system. Now it is easier than ever to optimize your footage for your shooting environment—by quickly swapping out your optical low pass filter. Choose from our growing line of DSMC2 OLPF options including Standard, Low Light Optimized, Skin Tone-Highlight, or all three with the 3-Pack.
