RED ONE Recording

Frequently asked questions:


Can I play back footage on the RED ONE?

Yes. The RED ONE® provides full playback in camera with audio available through the headphone jack.


Can the RED ONE perform time-lapse or stop frame animation?

Yes. The RED ONE has a built-in intervalometer and the ability to capture single frame by automatic control, record button or GPI trigger.


How does shooting RAW affect white balance, levels, and exposure?

Shooting RAW requires adjusting color temperature, gain, sharpening, knee, toe, pedestal, and black levels prior to processing the video signal. In a RAW capture, all this information can be addressed in post production. The sensor captures what it sees so that you can make adjustments later. Exposure is the only finite adjustment that needs be made at the time of capture to obtain the best dynamic range in the image.

For more information, go to Exposure with RED cameras: Strategy.


Can I use third-party CF cards with the RED ONE?



What are the output resolutions on the RED ONE?

The EVF video output is 1280 x 848 and the LCD video output is 1024 x 600. 720P can be tapped from the HDMI and HD-SDI ports, while HD-SDI Dual Port and HDMI provide 1080P output in playback only.


Where can I find frame rates, recording times, and resolution choices for the RED ONE?

This information can be found in the RED ONE Operation Guide


Can RED ONE record in black and white?

No. However, metadata can be adjusted in post production because the RED ONE records in RAW. The RED ONE offers the ability to remove color in-camera through tagged metadata, so that when the files are brought into post, the image appears in black and white.


Can I record SD, 720P, or 1080P on RED ONE?

No. The RED ONE does not natively record SD or HD footage. The clips can be scaled down to 1080P, 720P, or SD in REDCINE-X PRO® or another non-linear editing (NLE) program while still maintaining the selective depth of field control.
