It turns out RED's 6k Dragon sensor will actually be HIGHER resolution than Sony's F65 "8k" sensor. How is this possible?? I detailed here how Sony uses a whacky method of counting pixels to claim their F65 has an 8k sensor. If you calculate the F65 sensor's resolution like you would with any other camera, it comes out to 5782 x 3060. Remember that number.
When RED announced their 6k Dragon sensor they didn't give the exact resolution but a couple posts in the reduser forums give us enough info to figure it out. The sensor will be 30mm x 15.8mm with a pixel size of 5 microns. Do the math and we can deduce that Dragon will be 6,000 x 3,160. That is 1.3 million photosites MORE than the F65's supposed 8k sensor! RED has always advertised the active sensor area of their cameras and there is no reason to assume it will be any different this time.
It's no wonder RED has so many fans when for $6k we can upgrade our cameras and have the highest res motion camera in the world again.
