RED Gemini 5K S35

Please contact us for questions:



The GEMINI 5K S35 sensor provides exceptional low-light performance, allowing for cleaner imagery with less noise and better shadow detail. Operators can easily switch between modes through the camera's on-screen menu with no down time and experience an increased field of view at 2K and 4K resolutions compared to the higher resolution HELIUM sensor. In addition, the sensor's 30.72 mm x 18 mm dimensions allow for greater anamorphic lens coverage than with the HELIUM or RED DRAGON sensor.

The Top 5 Reasons Why We Love the RED Gemini 5K s35 Sensor

Mike Duca of Talamas shares the top 5 reasons why we love the RED Gemini.  The RED Gemini 5K s35 Sensor has dual sensor, standard and low light modes to film your production in a variety of environments. The Gemini sensor is housed in a custom DMSC2 body and can shoot 5K at up to 96fps. This easy to use camera creates incredible quality images.

GEMINI is RED's highest sensitivity sensor to date and offers significantly increased performance in low-light settings and improved performance in shadows. A DSMC2 BRAIN is capable of data write speeds of 300 MB/s, and can simultaneously record in REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD.

With features like cable-free peripherals, integrated media bay, wireless control, and more—DSMC2 is also compatible with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories—from RED and other Third-Party manufacturers. Tack on interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts and DSMC2 gives you the ultimate control over your footage.
