FiveSix Productions just completed the upgrade of its Red Camera to the Epic Red Dragon giving FiveSix the ability to shoot 6K. 6K images provide detail that surpasses that of 35mm film and moves into the realm of 65mm film; or, with each frame being a 19 megapixel RAW image, it is nine times more detailed than 1080p HD footage.
These may seem like overwhelming figures, but even if you don’t require 6K, outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD assures the product will be clearer, crisper, and way more awesome.
The Red Dragon upgrade also provides an incredible native dynamic range of 16.5+ stops on it’s improved sensor. This will greatly expand the ability to successfully work in even more challenging lighting situations, and come out with the best, truest product possible.
Hopefully, 6K opportunities abound this coming year for the crew of FiveSix Productions.
