RED's 6K Dragon sensor is said to be ultra-clean, offer high dynamic range, more

RED's teased 6K resolution Dragon sensor is exceeding the company's expectations after internal testing, CEO Jim Jannard revealed on the official forums. He promises the sensor will be "the cleanest" ever seen and will be the resolution and dynamic range king. At ISO 2000, Jannard said, the images produced look better than the company's current MX sensor at ISO 800.

The Dragon will cost $6,000 and can be retrofitted into existing RED Epic cameras. It will also be compatible with the Scarlet-X, though pricing for this application hasn't yet been set. It will arrive at a later time as well. The sensor promises to bring over 15 stops of dynamic range and 120FPS speeds at 5K resolution. The forum thread also reveals that the sensor will be slightly taller and wider than the one found in the Epic-X.

Jannard also stated that the sensor will be out before year's end.
