The RED Komodo 6K cameras are still so new that there isn’t even an official page for them on the RED website yet. But the cameras have now started to ship to a few lucky people. Filmmaker Joey Helms has received his white “Storm trooper edition” RED Komodo and in this video, he walks us through an overview of the camera, why he chose to get one and some footage he’s shot since receiving it.
The footage in the video looks pretty spectacular, as one would expect from a RED camera. But the little Komodo is a fraction of the cost of many of its larger siblings. Despite costing only around $6-7,000, though, it boasts an impressive set of specs. According to a recent update from Jared Land, the specs are final, although the first early cameras may require some firmware updates to iron out some bugs.
