RED Digital Cinema Ship New Cameras

News Image
RED Digital Cinema has announced it is now shipping two new cameras; the RED EPIC-W and the latest WEAPON.

Both cameras feature the compact design of the DSMC2 form factor, plus the new HELIUM 8K S35 sensor. HELIUM, which is the company's latest sensor technology, enables higher resolution in an S35 frame.

The EPIC-W 8K S35 camera captures 8K full frame motion at up to 30 fps, produces detailed 35.4 megapixel stills and offers Super 35 lens coverage. It is also capable of fast data speeds up to 275 MB/s. The EPIC-W is priced at $29,500 for the camera BRAIN.

The WEAPON 8K S35 is the latest option in the WEAPON line of cameras, featuring data speeds up to 300 MB/s, the ability to capture 8K full frame motion at up to 60 fps, and a sensor upgrade path to the RED DRAGON 8K VV. It is available for the same price as the WEAPON 6K with RED DRAGON sensor, at $49,500 for the BRAIN.

Jarred Land, president, RED Digital Cinema, said: "From the very beginning, we've strived to not only develop the best imaging technology on the planet, but also make it available to as many shooters as possible. The WEAPON remains our premier camera – and now comes with the option to either go with the 8K HELIUM sensor or 6K DRAGON sensor. Since we began shipping the EPIC in 2010, it has been the workhorse camera of the industry. Our latest camera, the EPIC-W, continues that legacy and features our current-gen DSMC2 form factor as well as the 8K HELIUM sensor."

RED has also confirmed that it is to introduce an improved image processing pipeline, including new color science. The improvements will be available in-camera on all BRAINs with a HELIUM sensor, and will be available to all footage shot on RED cameras in post production. The new image processing pipeline will be made available soon via free firmware and software upgrades.
