Taking a RED DSMC and making a smaller DXL 8K camera.

Smaller. Lighter. The Panavision DXL-M is designed to work with RED DSMC2 cameras. The DXL-M combines the quality and performance of the 8K DXL into a smaller size and weight while making use of either the RED MONSTRO, GEMINI, and HELIUM sensors.

The Panavision DXL-M has many of the features found in the Panavision Millennium DXL-2 like the 600-nit Primo HDR Viewfinder, DXL Menu System and LiColor2. The DXL-M offers 2×2 SDI outputs capable of sending two independent monitoring paths across 4x HD-SDI outputs. Other bonus accessories and a battery elevator and control over an android phone.

Staying mobile and lightweight looks to be the goal of the Panavision DXL-M. In many ways, the DXL-M is to the Millennium DXL-2 as the Arri Alexa Mini LF is to the Arri Alexa LF. Both companies offering a solution to camera operators who want to be more mobile. Similarities between the Panavision DXL-M and Millennium DXL-2 means shooters can jump from one camera to the other without hesitation to remember where a feature is on either camera.
