First Look: RED Komodo R3D HQ vs. R3D ELQ

All clips ISO 500, enlarged 999%, chroma noise reduction enabled. Click here to see our comparison between R3D HQ and R3D LQ. To really evaluate the image quality and see what compression is doing to our footage, it’s necessary to play the clips back-to-back in HDR on something like a 55″ LG OLED, and when doing so, we don’t find the quality acceptable even for YouTube.
