Red Epic

There’s no denying it. Red makes some of the most popular, coveted cameras on the market today. Filmmakers love them for their amazing resolution. You can create a beautiful film-like look with a Red camera. Some of the hottest movies of the season were shot on a Red, including The Man with the Iron Fists, Flight, and the most-anticipated film of the year, The HobbitYou can see a list of movies made on the Red cameras here.

Red revolutionized camera work with the Red One camera by making a 4K transfer available in a digital format.  Suddenly a true film look was available without the cost and time required to develop film. Now the Epic offers stunning 5K. You can see some great examples of the Epic in use, as well as a comprehensive review on Vincent Laforet’s blog.

Here are some of the specs on the Epic:
The launch sensor, called Mysterium-X, is a 27.7 by 14.6 mm 5120 x 2700 pixel, 13.8 megapixel Bayer pattern 14 bit CMOS sensor which is rated at ISO 800 at daylight with a dynamic range of 13.5 stops. It has approximately the same surface area of a traditional Super 35 film frame masked to the 1.85:1 aspect ratio, creating a similar angle of view and depth of field as the Super 35 film format.
