RED has rationalised and simplified its camera range, bringing them all to the same level as the Weapon and distinguished only by their sensor choice. Prices have dropped too. Here's Phil Holland's helpful breakdown, all in one convenient chart.
RED's camera range was getting complicated. The cameras themselves were excellent, but understanding the differences between them was a challenge. So, two weeks ago, RED announced that it has consolidated all its models into one camera body (and one set of electronics) with three sensors to choose from.
Monstro 8K VV
The top model with a VistaVision-sized 8K sensor
Helium 8K S35
A camera with an S35 8K sensor and impressive 8K performance
Gemini 5K S35
A camera with dual ISO sensitivity with excellent low light performance
The new line-up has advantages for everyone. For users, it's easier to make a choice, knowing that all cameras have the same higher level of electronics. For RED, we assume that it's going to simplify its manufacturing operations and raise its margins, at the same time as allowing it to lower prices across the board.
It goes without saying that support will be easier too.
