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.

Other noteworthy features include top touchscreen menu and live-view display, CFast 2.0 recording media, 4K SDI input, 3.5mm audio in, headphone jack, Wi-Fi capabilities for remote camera control, and more.
