Full Spectrum – False Colour OLPF

£280.00£580.00

KipperTie’s Full Spectrum filter for RED is ‘Expert Mode’ for your DSMC2 system.

Developed over two years for our adventurous and high-profile natural history cinematography clients, this filter provides the ultimate in Full spectrum and IR imagery with outstanding sharpness.  The filter has anti-reflective and protective coatings and comes housed in a genuine RED swappable mount.

Applications include:

  • IR illuminated covert filming
  • False colour and IR landscape and portrait imagery
  • Ultimate low-light performance
  • Creative and scientific purposes
  • Fun 😉

Notes & Caveats

Your Dragon will require the latest ‘swappable OLPF’ upgrade to have been installed. We recommend choosing the IR calibration in conjunction with this filter.  Earlier firmware users, please use the LLO cal.

Expect to see false colour and to work the image hard in Redcine-X to develop your look, including heavy curves, inverting and transposing channels etc.  Mono or Duo-tone images are often most attractive.

With original DSMC cameras this filter has no ‘low-pass’ function. The image will be as sharp as your lens and sensor can resolve in combination. On a standard colour Dragon, you may see aliasing in extremely high frequency detail. Monochrome Dragon is immune to this in almost all situations.

This filter transmits a wider range of wavelengths than any single lens is designed to accommodate at one time. Near-IR focus will be different from visible focus, potentially resulting in split or haloed focus. For best results you must filter at the front of the lens with colour or IR glass to choose the part of the spectrum you want to work in.  Mixed sources of light can also show up the same focus issue.

Not all lenses perform equally in IR.  Some will exhibit hotspots (if this is an issue, watch out for our upcoming IR-only filter), some will have internal reflection and flare issues, and some very modern lenses may appear darker than expected in IR due to their sophisticated coatings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Compatibility

VV size filters will mechanically fit any DSMC2 camera body. The glass area is bigger, to accommodate the larger sensor size.

For future proofing and simplicity it is possible to use the VV size filter in an S35 camera. Numerous customers queuing for the VV upgrade have selected this option. KipperTie can provide custom self adhesive OLPF masks on request to eliminate any unexpected gate flare on S35 that may arise.

Category: Compatibility

Red camera bodies are either DSMC1 or DSMC2. The OLPF design is incompatible between generations.

DSMC1 filters fit:
Epic Dragon (inc. monochrome), Scarlet Dragon.

DSMC2 filters fit:
Weapon Dragon, Scarlet-W (inc. monochrome), Epic-W, Helium S35

Red One, Red One MX, Epic MX and Scarlet MX are not supported.
DSMC1 filters are discontinued for all except false colour types.

Category: Compatibility

Dragon and Helium sensors have a different pixel pitch, as such it is no longer possible to be explicit about sensor optical area by referring to the ‘K’ resolution.

S35 refers to a sensor size approximating 3 perf S35 film. This covers all DSMC1 and DSMC2 RED cameras, whether 5K, 6K (Dragon) or 8K (Helium) with one exception:

VV refers to a sensor size approximating Vistavision, or full frame stills film. This is presently only available in the Weapon Dragon 8K VV and VV Anamorphic cameras.

Category: Compatibility

If you are moving from one DSMC2 body to another, your filters remain compatible. Only the VV upgrade requires a change of OLPF size.

If you have upgraded from DSMC1 to DSMC2 your filters will need to be replaced.
There is a strong secondhand market for all RED accessories, however we can offer loyalty discounts for those wishing to trade-in and upgrade. Contact us directly for a discount code.
