Frequently asked questions:

 

Is the RED DRAGON sensor 16 bit?

Yes.

 

What is the native ISO of the RED DRAGON sensor?

You can shoot ISO 100 to 12,800 depending on application and noise preferences. Typically, anywhere from ISO 400 and 2000 is recommended with the RED DRAGON® sensor.

 

Is the RED DRAGON sensor the same for SCARLET DRAGON and EPIC RED DRAGON?

Yes.

 

What lenses can I use with the RED DRAGON sensor?

You can use any lens designed for Full Frame 35mm formats. If you have a lens that covers MYSTERIUM-X® at 5K, the lens covers RED DRAGON at 5.5K safely. All lenses designed for Super 35mm cover RED DRAGON at 5K.

Width-based EPIC RED DRAGON® crop factors relative to full frame 35mm:

Format Crop Factor
6K Full 1.17x
5.5K 1.30x
5K 1.41x
4K 1.76x
3K 2.35x
2K 3.52x
1K 5.63x

Width-based EPIC RED DRAGON crop factors relative to Super 35mm:

Format Crop Factor

4K 1.22x
3K 1.62x
2K 2.43x
1K 3.89x

Does the RED DRAGON sensor change my depth of field?

Yes. Since the RED DRAGON sensor is larger than previous RED® camera sensors, the angle of view for a given focal length is wider. The wider angle of view means that you have to move closer to achieve the same subject framing. Alternatively, you could remain in the same position and use a longer focal length to compensate. Either way, the depth of field becomes shallower as a result.

 

Is the back focus adjustment or flange depth the same on the RED DRAGON sensor as it is on the MYSTERIUM-X sensor?

Yes.
