We all know how good Red cameras are, with one of my favorite YouTubers - MKBHD - making such great use out of his expensive kit.




Well, Red Cinema has just unveiled its latest Scarlet-W and Scarlet-W Monochrome cameras, which are both capable of shooting 5K RAW video, and 2K ProRes with Red's Dragon sensor. If you want to get some slow motion action out of them, the camera can shoot 5K 60FPS widescreen, 4K at 150FPS, and 2K at a huge 300FPS.


The new Red Cinema Scarlet-W costs $9,950 for the body only, and sits between the expensive $29,000 6K Epic model, and the new $5,950 Raven model. Red explains: "All of our [latest] cameras have the Dragon sensor in common, so intercutting footage between the entire line is pretty seamless".
