Built for high-end cinematography , the RED DSMC2 Gemini bundles high performance RAW capture with high sensitivity, rugged and ready to shoot anything you throw at it.



This kit has been augmented with KipperTie’s IR False Color OLPF, allowing the camera to natively shoot capturing light in the IR spectrum, starting at 750nm and on up. This leaves flexibility for some color to be captured and augmented in post, or for dramatic black and white cinematography to be achieved.



Feel free to reach out and schedule a (free) demo with us if you’re unfamiliar with IR Cinematography, so we can go over some of the workflow, pitfalls, tips, and tricks with you before you bring it out on a shoot.



Bundling high performance raw video recording in a compact camera body, the RED Digital Cinema DSMC2 Brain with GEMINI 5K S35 Sensor is part of the unified DSMC2 lineup and is designed to be built up the way you want, to tell your story in almost any way possible. Since the DSMC2 form factor is standard, accessories from RED and other manufacturers can be easily attached to accessorize your camera. The GEMINI uses advanced circuitry designed for the aerospace industry, the GEMINI can switch native sensitivities with its “Dual Native ISO.” Practically speaking, it can operate in both normal and dimly lit scenarios without prematurely blown highlights or excessive noise, respectively.


REDCODE RAW is the format of choice for DSMC2 cinema cameras. RED’s versatile raw codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media. Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The DSMC2 cameras use sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions. Recording rates range from 12 fps and up, for 5k this is 75 or 96 fps depending on resolution, up to 200fps at 2k.


Both EF and PL mounts are available when renting the GEMINI. Please specify lens mount upon issuing rental reservation.
