Outfit Your RED Weapon, Scarlet or Raven With Wooden Camera’s Custom Kits

During our tour of Wooden Camera’s Los Angeles store, we talked with manager Michael Millichamp about a few of their many versatile camera rig kits. One such kit caters to the ever popular RED series, such as the RED Weapon, Scarlet and Raven cameras.

As Millichamp explains, Wooden Camera offers several different RED Weapon/Scarlet/Raven kits based on production need. You can, of course, also purchase the parts independently to craft a custom rig for your needs. Wooden Camera is prepared to help you with either option. As far as pre-made kits are concerned, Wooden Camera offers three distinct ones:
