RED DSMC Epic V2
With the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.
Resolution is more than just attention to detail. From large objects to granule textures, 6K images cultivate the nuance of every image, leaving nothing behind. Improvements to micro-contrast and MTF produce a cleaner image, drastically reducing moiré and aliasing artifacts. When outputting 6K files to 4K or HD, your image will appear more refined and detailed compared to those captured at lower resolutions. The choice is simple; Bigger is better.
6K resolution translates to over 19 MP, packing the same detail you expect from your DSLR into a cinema camera. When you can capture motion and stills in 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 frames per second (fps), or 6K Full Format at 75 fps, you get up to 100 chances per second to capture the perfect picture. Every still is raw and Adobe Photoshop compatible, which means your workflow doesn’t need to change—even if technology does. The RED DRAGON sensor blurs the line between motion and still cameras, giving you the best of both worlds.
Just because your specs changed, doesn’t mean your gear has to. All existing accessories, rail components, and modules designed for EPIC-X or M are compatible regardless of what sensor is installed. Instead of making your accessories obsolete, RED proudly takes great care in making sure your equipment lasts as long as possible. Change has never been so easy.
A new sensor means a new look, and REDCINE-X PRO gives you all tools you need to dial in your image the way you want it. With its latitude at 6K resolution, you can play with color, curves, and composition with less limitations than ever before. Now with the introduction of the RED ROCKET-X card, your RED workflow just got 5x faster than ever before. REDCINE-X PRO harnesses the power you need to tame your 6K EPIC DRAGON footage and is available for free only on RED.com.
