More and more details regarding the long-awaited and highly anticipated RED Komodo 6K camera emerged earlier today. The upcoming camera should be available soon in custom colors and limited quantities starting at $6,000.

According to Jarred Land, the current president of RED Digital Cinema, the custom colored versions of RED Komodo alongside the Stormtrooper white model will be selling for around $7,000, whereas the regular black units will cost $1,000 less. Here’s the original post of Land that popped up on Instagram just a few hours ago.

New step in the the process? 15 minutes in the magical UV Bubble just for good measure. Now that our factory is back in action …albeit severely anemic with the new protocols, we can slowly start making Komodos again. it’s a really, really slow train now so it’s gonna take a while to get enough of our troops back to start making enough volume to blast out to dealers and the world but the good news is to pass that time and keep our skeleton crew busy, in 2 weeks I’m gonna start selling some crazy colored Komodos to my friends and anyone else who wants to be a little “different” . Super limited low quantities. Will make just a handful per week till the stormtroopers are ready . Email me if your interested.
