A One Year Review of the RED Komodo

The RED Komodo is an interesting offering.  The Komodo is a Cinema camera, first and foremost, and one of the most affordable offerings from RED.  If you like the RED look you will likely satisfied by the Komodo and its crisp, 6k, raw image and its pleasant colors.  If you’re looking for a run-and-gun or a low light camera, look elsewhere.  We don’t think the sensor is as noisy as it’s made out to be as long as you expose with care which is a reasonable expectation of a cinema camera.  Our biggest complaint is how the highlights clip on this camera, as it happens a bit sooner than we would like, but that’s nothing we can’t work around.
