The RED Raven Brain is the smallest, most affordable RED camera to date. Key features include:

  • RED Dragon sensor with a 1.87 crop factor

  • 4K capture at up to 120 fps

  • Integrated Canon EF mount

  • Compact build and intuitive layout

Heart of a Dragon. The RED Raven features a RED Dragon Sensor with a 1.87 crop factor. This means you have the features, performance, and pedigree of an industry-standard chip with a high dynamic range and advanced color science in a slightly smaller package. Please note that this sensor has a fixed standard optical low-pass filter installed with no option to swap it out.

Ultra-High Resolution and Speed. The REDRaven gives you the ability to record stills and motion at up to 120 fps in 4K (4096 × 2160), up to 240 fps in 2K in REDCODE RAW. You can also record 2K in Apple ProRes proxies.

Integrated Canon EF Mount. To help keep costs down, the RED Raven is only offered with an integrated Canon EF mount.

DSMC2 Accessorized. The Raven’s design adds the small details that make working with it easy and intuitive. Built-in stereo mics help capture scratch and environmental audio, while a built-in speaker allows for playback. RED has placed pogo connections across the brain to keep you from having to deal with a Medusa-like tangle of cables.

DSMC2 Base Expander Included. The Raven Brain itself doesn’t have a power input to connect the standard AC adapter, so we include the DSMC2 Base Expander to give you the inputs you’ll need to turn it on.

Most accessories shown in above videos are not included with this rental. Please check the Included tab above to see what we send with the RED Raven Brain.
