Before we dive into the technical specifications, let’s give this camera a proper introduction. 

What is the RED Komodo?

Welcome to the RED Komodo- a masterpiece built from innovating and revolutionizing cinematic film. In summary, it is a compact digital cinema camera. Note the word compact. This rig features all the high-quality specs you’d expect from a RED product, except it is all packed into a small and slim body frame.

Top RED Komodo Camera Specs 

This is arguably one of the most (if not THE most) impressive compact cinematic camera releases of 2020. To start off, this rig features a global shutter that utilizes high-quality sensor technology. That means your shots will have a dynamic range and capture every movement. 

Another top spec is the Komodo’s ability to shoot 6K cinema footage, which is quite impressive. RED Komodo 6k resolution allows videographers to create some truly advanced visuals.
