As part of RED’s latest generation DSMC2 line, SCARLET-W also features numerous enhancements, including simultaneous REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD recording, integrated smart connectors for cable-free peripheral attachment, and faster read/write speeds for lower compression—all in a small and lightweight form factor. SCARLET-W is compatible with all of your DSMC2 accessories.

One of the major improvements featured with the SCARLET-W is the integration of the new DSMC2® intelligent OLPF system, making it easier than ever to optimize footage for your shooting environment by quickly swapping out the optical low pass filter. The RED SCARLET-W DRAGON is a versatile camera system for any production.

With improved read/write speeds, the SCARLET-W DRAGON supports lower compression rates, which enhances image quality and allows for smoother playback and editing. This improvement is crucial for maintaining the integrity of your footage during high-resolution shoots.
