On the week that Jim Jannard decided to take a back seat we are presented with these stunning pictures from RED’s new 6K sensor.


Jim Jannards last post on REDUSER “With the release of the Dragon sensor… I have finished my mission. I am done posting. I will no longer be the face of RED. Mercifully, Jarred will take my place and he is worthy times forever. Jarred is me… only 30 years younger.

My final thoughts…

I have done my best. I saw a fatal flaw in the camera industry. We did our best to address it. I will now sink into the background, I hope with my reputation intact. I will work on the future of digital cinema… behind the scenes.”


The still comes from filmmaker Tom Lowe (Timescapes), who has been traveling around Sri Lanka with the RED Dragon.



Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “Pics from the new RED Dragon 6K sensor…”STUNNING”

  1. 6K here we come whether we like it or not. I see it as both good and bad. The good is what we shoot today in 6K will be good for a long time. THe bad editors will reframe our work as there is so much latitude to do so. In fact I just shot a TVC that we mounted a 5K Epic side on to make the most of the resolution, shooting green screen. In post all the CUs and were cut from the wide we shot.
