SCARLET-W® Monochrome delivers a camera of unparalleled quality and acessibility to content creators everywhere—powered by a RED DRAGON® Monochrome sensor and featuring interchangeable lens mounts and OLPFs.
SCARLET-W Monochrome harnesses the RAW performance and impressive dynamic range of the RED DRAGON Monochrome sensor. Experience the ground-breaking image quality of the RED DRAGON Monochrome sensor—optimized for SCARLET-W. Capture the black and white cinematic quality and elegance in 5K 2.4:1 at up to 60 frames per second (fps), or 5K Full Format at 50 fps, with a monochrome sensor that exceeds the light-gathering capabilities of traditional color sensors. SCARLET-W Monochrome features sensor improvements that achieve increased light sensitivity, higher resolution and unmatched dynamic range. 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.
Designed around the innovative modular architecture of the DSMC2® family, SCARLET-W is compatible with all of your DSMC2 accessories. Whether you are shooting with a single camera—or an entire arsenal, RED’s modular approach ensures that your DSMC2 accessories are compatible with SCARLET-W, RED RAVEN™, and WEAPON® cameras.
This product includes the SCARLET-W Monochrome BRAIN® (w/ integrated media bay), DSMC AC Power Adaptor, SCARLET-W Case, a 1-Year Standard Warranty, a DSMC2 Low Light Optimized OLPF, and more. See the Included Tab for more information.
When you purchase any new RED DRAGON camera, you may buy a RED ROCKET-X for a bundle price of $4,495. Simply add a RED ROCKET-X to your cart and the discount will be automatically applied.
NOTE: The SCARLET-W BRAIN itself does not have a DC IN power port. A port expander or power module is required to power the camera. To construct a working configuration for any BRAIN, RED recommends an expander, battery, lens mount, display, and media.
NOTE: Only one (1) expander module can be used at a time.
