RED DSMC2 GEMINI camera kit: Complete solution for shooters

Promising to deliver incredible dynamic range, Red presents the DSMC2 GEMINI Camera Kit! Here are all the core elements needed to produce cinema image quality, packed in a camera case.

Red DSMC2 GEMINI Camera Kit


The new DSMC2 GEMINI kit from Red Digital Cinema is offering loads of solutions for cinematographers who shoot all over the place. All that's needed now is a lens! For someone like me who often "runs and guns" this new kit will be a great help at getting the best possible image... for little.

The newly packaged system offers cinematographers a complete solution (lens not included) to start shooting while being able to tackle a variety of situations. It’s interesting to see that as Panavision introduced, at Cine Gear Expo 2019, its new DXL-M, which marries the modularity and connectivity of the DXL with the smaller size and weight of RED’s DSMC2 cameras, to offer a fully-equipped camera that is conveniently adaptable to any shooting scenario, RED presents a solution that, as the company states, offers, “a comprehensive solution for cinematographers who shoot in a variety of environments.”

Here is the DSMC2 camera BRAIN with the GEMINI 5K S35 sensor! Featuring dual sensitivity modes for greater variety in different lighting situations common are some of the great things to look forward to.

GEMINI is RED’s highest sensitivity sensor to date! Offering significantly increased performance in low-light settings and improved performance in shadows names only a couple of additional features. Choosing standard mode allows for well-lit conditions. Low-light mode is for darker settings. Selecting or switching between the two is a breeze with the camera's on screen menu.
