No matter which amazing sensor you choose, the RED RANGER camera system will feature the same compact, standardized camera body, weighing around 7.5 pounds (depending on whether the user chooses the V-Lock or Gold Mount variant). RANGER comes complete with a comprehensive I/O array to satisfy power-hungry studio configurations and boasts a large fan for quiet and more efficient temperature management.

RED's RANGER is an integrated camera system offering an all-in-one system rather than completely modular. It features all of the benefits of the DSMC2 sensor line up within a less complex platform for filmmakers. Features like integrated I/O's, 24V power out, shimmed PL Mount and improved thermal performance offer unmatched versatility as well as peace of mind in challenging shooting environments.

The RANGER HELIUM 8K S35 offers 16.5+ stops and full-frame lenses to capture images at rates up to 60 fps in 8192 x 4320 8K, 75 fps in the 2.4:1 aspect ratio, 120 fps in 4K, and up to 240 fps in 2K.

Shoot full-frame video in REDCODE RAW (R3D) and ProRes or DNxHR/HD at the same time, or capture 35.4MP still images.

RANGER is capable of handling the rigorous strain and robust power needs of high-end studio productions. Supporting wide input voltage (11.5V to 32V) and more independent SDI and AUX power outputs, as well as an integrated XLR audio input. The camera boasts a larger fan for quieter and more efficient temperature management.

RED RANGER is available with three different sensor options: MONSTRO 8K VV, HELIUM 8K S35, and GEMINI 5K S35. All three sensors deliver stunning resolution and image quality—creating clean and organic images that bring your footage to life. The MONSTRO and HELIUM sensors take the next step in exceeding beauty offered by film - up to 17x more resolution than HD—and over 4x more than 4K. For flexibility in any situation, GEMINI is RED's highest sensitivity sensor to date and offers significantly increased performance in low-light settings and improved performance in shadows.

COMPARISON:

The biggest difference between the Ranger and the rest of the DSMC2 line is that none of the current expander modules are compatible with the Ranger. Whereas previous REDs were built for versatility, taking a brain and custom-building the camera with expansion modules to meet your needs, this camera is single-purposed. The task-specific modules needed to make the Ranger a high-end studio camera are built-into it and the camera is fully functional on its own.

One other major difference is the PL lens mount used on the Ranger. Other DSMC2 brains use an internal back-focus adjustment that allows for swapping with other mounts. The Ranger has more precise internal shimming that is designed for, and only compatible with, PL mount lenses.
