The full frame Ranger camera offers high quality and resolutions of image. It is a CMOS of 34.5 megapixels with a maximum resolution of 8192 x 4320 and with 40.96 x 21.60 size (46.31mm in diagonal), with 800 native ISO. Ranger utilizes the same image compression of the new Panavision Millenium DXL2 camera. Both cameras with 17 stops of dynamic range. Knowing how far it is similar to the Red DSMC2 Monstro camera, we just need need to see the respective differences to understand how the Red Ranger camera is.
All the Red DSMC2 cameras has the possibility to decide which sensor and which accessories to get. However, Red Ranger is made of Monstro sensor, sidekick on one camera side and an expansion base similar to production module. That is to say, with the Red Ranger rental you can choose with which accessories take it, but without the possibility of taking out the sidekick or changing the rear part for another sort of module.
The sidekick allows to control the camera configurations adding 0,22 lbs of weight but with no necessity to use a Red Touch monitor.
There are three kind of modules available in the market: Production Module, I/O Expander and Jetpack. These last two are lighter than the first one, although they don’t offer as many video and power outputs and audio inputs as the Production Module. Red Ranger has the same connections as the production module but with two outputs instead of one and one XLR audio input instead of two.
The fact that Red Ranger camera has a non-modular part is understood by the following concept. Anyone who buys an 8k camera feels confident knowing that they have a camera with little risk of long-term obsolescence. If you have a modular camera, the appearance of technological improvements allows you to change only the obsolete parts of the camera, instead of the whole camera.
Some producers or individuals are forced to maintain the use of non-modular cameras to amortize them, even if they do not give the same features as the most advanced cameras.
Now, if the non-modular Ranger camera is only available for rent, this concern does not exist for the producers .
Therefore, until the Red Ranger stops being offered in the rental houses, its presence in these rental houses, shows its high value like any other.
The Red Ranger camera has been built with the best features to be able to stay in the rental market as long as possible. Ranger camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
