The Perfect Storm
Carrying on the legacy of the revolutionary RED ONE®, SCARLET-W brings an unparalleled level of accessibility to content creators everywhere. SCARLET-W combines RED’s intuitive camera design—including integrated mounting points, interchangeable lens mounts, simultaneous REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes recording formats, intelligent OLPF system, and in-camera 3D LUT outputs—with a RED DRAGON® sensor to provide a solution that blends flexibility and accessibility with high-end performance.

Enhance your Image
The RED DRAGON sensor allows shooters to get the best shot every time. SCARLET-W harnesses the massive dynamic range of the RED DRAGON sensor to produce cinema-quality images rich with natural colour. SCARLET-W’s Monochrome camera option gives shooters the ability to capture black and white images that contain enhanced resolution and heightened light sensitivity. SCARLET-W gives you the ability to capture your vision exactly as you see it: 5K at 60 frames per second (fps), 4K at 150 fps, or 2K at 300 fps with REDCODE RAW.

Workflow Made Easy
RED’s commitment to providing a seamless workflow persists with SCARLET-W. RED’s innovative REDCODE RAW recording format, also known as R3D®, enables shooters to maintain visual integrity throughout post production with non-destructive editing capabilities. Compatible with most professional-grade editing programs, REDCODE RAW easily adapts to your preferred system. Additionally, shooters have the freedom to simultaneous capture options in both R3D and Apple ProRes 422, 422 LT, or 422 HQ.

Ready for Anything
The rugged, durable design of SCARLET-W makes it an ideal option for wherever your journey takes you. Whether you configure your camera to be as lightweight as possible or work with a complex studio configuration, SCARLET-W allows you to feel secure in its abilities to capture cinema-quality images in any circumstance. A Base I/O V-Lock package option comes with the key components necessary for you to get out and start shooting, allowing you to immediately set your production in motion.
