RED Digital Cinema launches the Raven

RED Digital Cinema has unveiled the latest addition to its line of professional cameras, RED RAVEN. Weighing in at just 3.5 lbs, RED RAVEN is designed to give a blend of flexibility and performance. Whether shooting for documentaries, online content creation, indie filmmaking, or with drones and gimbals, the RED RAVEN’s durable, lightweight construction will be suitable for many situations.

Jarred Land, RED Digital Cinema President states: “The Raven doesn’t replace Scarlet, It’s a new category in our line up. Raven is a younger, hungrier, more 'spirited' member of the RED family with a bit of a chip on his shoulder ready to take on the entire sub-$10k market with images that you will be incredibly proud of.”

Pricing for the RED Raven starts at $5,950 for the camera BRAIN only, with complete package options available for under $10,000. RED RAVEN’s announcement reflects RED’s ongoing commitment that cinema-quality creative tools should not be in the hands of a few but should be available to all professional shooters.

The Raven uses the RED Dragon sensor and is capable of capturing footage with REDCODE RAW in 4K at 120 fps or in 2K at 240 fps, RED Raven is built to shoot exceptionally high-speed, high-resolution content with great dynamic range, ultra-clean detail and RED's renowned colour science.

RED Raven provides options to fit different workflows: RED’s innovative recording format, REDCODE RAW (R3D), enables visual integrity throughout post-production with non-destructive editing capabilities and is compatible with most professional-grade editing programs. Shooters can further their flexibility with simultaneous capture options in both R3D and Apple ProRes 422, 422 LT, or 422 HQ.

The RED Raven will begin shipping in February 2016 but RED are taking pre-orders now.
