120FPS low light camera recommendation

Recommended Posts

I have a studio shoot coming up in which I need to shoot a bunch of 120FPS footage with limited lighting (probably no more than a 2' 4 bank Kino and 2x 1x1 LEDs). I unfortunately don't have the budget to do much camera testing, and I'm wondering if there is a consensus as whether the Sony FS7 or a Red Dragon will give me better high speed low light performance.. would appreciate any insight!

You shouldn't double post it causes confusion when people start answering two threads. The answers seem to be going to your other one.

RED One can shoot 120fps at 2k. From what I've seen it's not bad in low light, also getting cheaper and cheaper as the months go by.

i would assume a Dragon sensor is more sensitive? a Dragon is a possible rental for us but the most important thing is the cleanest sensor at between 2000 and 3200 ISO at 120P in either 2k or HD. FS7 or Dragon seem like the best options for the budget ($400 to $500 per day tops for camera) based on my research but unfortunately don't have the budget for camera tests.

Sorry. I always assume everyone is looking to purchase for some reason lol.

haha nope, rental! looking for feedback from someone specifically who has used 120FPS in relatively low-light with both the FS7 and Red.
