RED has just unveiled their new 5K Gemini sensor which fits inside of their new Epic-W camera, a new 5K shooter with dual-ISO mode that lets you switch between dynamic range and light sensitivity.

In the video above, RED explains: "Images exposed at ISO 3200 in low-light mode will be just as clean as images exposed at ISO 800 in the standard mode". RED unveiled the Gemini 5K sensor earlier this year, saying that it was designed with a specific use case - in outer space, and most people thought this was Elon Musk as RED teased it was for "a very special customer".

RED's new 5K sensor can shoot RAW 5K videos at up to 96FPS, and 2K videos at a huge 300FPS. The new RED Epic-W with Gemini 5K is available right now for $24,500 while RED says that it will be offering users an option to upgrade to current RED Epic-W 8K and Weapon Carbon Fiber owners in the near future.
