RED DIGITAL CINEMA KOMODO-X ST 6K Digital Cinema Camera Announced, Priced $9,995

By on

RED DIGITAL CINEMA KOMODO-X ST 6K Digital Cinema camera was just officially announced.  With built-in Wi-Fi and a USB-C connector, the KOMODO-X provides a powerful platform for smooth professional capture, multicamera setups, and IP-based workflows, including live streaming.

Retaining the size of the original KOMODO 6K S35 global shutter sensor, RED has redesigned an entirely new sensor for the KOMODO-X to feature even more detail in the shadows, enhance color depth, and double supported frame rates to 6K80 and 4K120 to encourage even more creative cinematography.

The RED Komodo-X ST 6K digital cinema camera is available to order now for $9,995. The limited-edition camera will begin shipping by the end of May at B&HAdorama.
