This is a fully featured digital cinematography camera is at the forefront of digital acquisition, ultra-high resolution four times the level of HD making it a suitable contender for transfer to 35mm film. Now being used extensively to shoot major multi-million dollar Hollywood productions, this camera allows the students to finish their major project on anything from DVD to a film print.
Our RED camera is up there with the best in terms of equipment so that students can walk out on set with a kit that any fully-funded feature would be satisfied with.
