This Intense Carbon Fiber RED Dragon Camera Will Film Game of Thrones

In case you forgot, the RED Dragon is the latest 6K video-recording, insane dynamic-range-producing, probably-fire-breathing camera. This particular model is cased in carbon fiber, and will be put to the test filming the next season of Game of Thrones.

The Carbon Dragon will cost a cool $50,000 on an order-by-order basis this Fall. That's $20,000 more than the regular model. Besides looking badass, it also shaves off a pound of weight thanks to its carbon fiber casing.

While Game of Thrones is primarily shot with the Arri Alexa, RED cameras have been known to make appearances in certain specialty situations. It is not yet known the extent of the role this RED Carbon Dragon will play. But it certainly seems like a match made in heaven. Now we just need a Valyrian Steel model. [REDuser, Thanks, Adrian!]

All well and good, but isn't 90% of GoT CGI at this point? Do we really need 6K to capture the costumes?

What the hell am I saying, of course we do! When's the 8K version coming out?
