Red Camera used for VR Tours

When it comes to cameras, there are basic models that are easier on the budget, and then there are models that provide superior quality photographs and videos, which can be pretty pricey.

How much are you willing to spend on photography and video?

RED is known for their expensive cameras and they are counting on customers spending quite a bit with the recent release of their flagship sensor,  The new ‘weapon brain’, Monstro 8K VV is a monster and prices in at $80,000!  If that’s not bad enough, with extras, it quickly adds up to $100,000!

So what makes this camera so expensive?

Internally: 35.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, 40.96 mm x 21.60 mm (Diag: 46.31 mm), Has a dynamic range of 17+ stops

Made of: Carbon fiber, magnesium and aluminum alloy.

Video Editing Software Compatibility: Adobe Premiere Pro, AVID Media Composer,
DaVinci Resolve, Edius Pro, Final Cut Pro, Vegas Pro.

All in all, this camera can get the job done and then some. You can expect cleaner images, more clarity, vibrant color and better detail focus than you could have achieved before, especially in dark low lighting areas.

If you’re looking for top of the line greatness from a reputable company and you have $100K to drop, you might want to consider RED.  But is $100,000 too much?

Remember, that the quality of the shot can only be improved so much by equipment.  If you aren’t a professional, your money would be better spent on a photographer who not only has the equipment, but also knows how to use it.

We know that to get the best shot, you need the right equipment, which includes the person behind the lens.  Of course, if you still want to spend $100,000, we’ll gladly take your money too...
