The camera is rumored to feature a super resolution sensor and improved image stabilization.

If we look at some old post Sony japan mangers told us that Sony A7R III is coming with a 70-80 MP sensor [source]. So, at the end on thing is very clear that Sony A7R III was the camera to have a 70-80MP CMOS Sensor, if Sony changes the name or series it’s their choice and they are free to do that. But, till April 4th, 2016 A7R III was scheduled to arrive with a high resolution sensor.

Other than 70-80MP rumor is Sony also testing a 54MP FF CMOS Sensor prototype. The detailed specification not available yet.

Red Helium - New Low Light KING at DXO Mark Lab

helium-vs-a7r-ii-image

Red epic Dragon and Helium become the first camera to cross 100 marks barrier in DXO mark lab test score. Till now the Sony A7R II camera was the undisputed winner of the DXO mark lab. But is it logical to test a $59K camera with $3K camera ? We don’t think so…

RED is the NEw King

The Red Helium camera features of 35.4 megapixel CMOS sensor and it can capture 8k @ 75 fps  and 8K RAW @ 60 frames. The Camera can also capture 120 FPS at 4K resolution. Take a look at the detailed specification of the camera

  • 35.4MP CMOS sensor
  • 75 fps 8K capture at 2.4:1 (8392 x 3456)
  • 60 fps RAW full 8K resolution
  • 120 fps at 4K resolution (240 fps at 2K)
  • 300 MB/second data readout
  • Captures in 16-bit RECODE RAW or Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD
  • Super 35-format sensor (29.90 mm x 15.77 mm)
  • Integrated dual-channel audio
  • Integrated REDLINK WiFi antenna
  • Upgrade path to WEAPON 8K VV (when available)

After the arrival of RED the Sony A7RII got slipped on third place in the table. But the red has established itself in the hearts of cinematographers.

But, is it fair to compare $29K or $59K camera with a $3K consumer camera? Share your thoughts with us. From our point of view DXO Mark should have a new category of PRO Cinema cameras and in that table they should stack up RED Dragon, Canon EOS C700 and Sony FS7 Mark II etc.
