The MixPre II Series are packed with advanced pro audio features such as 32Bit Float, built-in internal timecode generation, ultra-wide dynamic range A-to-D conversion and recording up to 192 kHz. Just like the predecessors, the Mix Pre II series will have three models – the Mix Pre 3, 6, and 10, to satisfy the needs of creatives ranging from one-man band videographers and sound recordists, to those working as sound mixers in the TV, Film and broadcast industry.
RED Komodo camera
RED have been teasing their new RED Komodo camera for the past few weeks with Instagram and REDusers posts, and while a lot of the specifications and features remain under wraps, it was recently revealed that Hollywood filmmaker Steven Soderbergh has been using the latest super-compact RED camera on one of his upcoming projects. From the teasers so far we know that the new camera will have a Canon RF mount, record onto CFast cards and get power from affordable Canon BP batteries from the XF series camcorders. With IBC just around the corner, we expect to learn more about the RED Komodo very soon.
