Red Digital 710-0263-STD EPIC-W HELIUM 8K S35 BRAIN (Standard OLPF)
The RED EPIC-W carries on the legacy of the original EPIC, which became the industry workhorse upon its release in 2010. Powered by the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor, recipient of the highest DxOMark score ever, RED EPIC-W is capable of shooting 8K Full Format at up to 30 frames per second (fps).
At full 8K resolution EPIC-W captures 35.4 Megapixels images-delivering more detail and creative possibilities in every frame. With HELIUM sensor advancements, RED EPIC-W boasts improved low-light sensitivity and impressive dynamic range. Leveraging lightning fast data rates /s, EPIC-W can record Redcode RAW, as well as proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR-simultaneously.
About RED Epic-W 8k Helium Sensor
At 35.4 megapixels, the HELIUM camera's 8K sensor can resolve the finest details in a captured image and render smooth lines and shapes without the aliasing or "stair-stepping" artifacts found in lower-resolution footage. If you need higher frame rates, lower resolutions and wider aspect ratios can yield up to 300 fps. RED measured the HELIUM sensor as having 16.5 stops of dynamic range, able to represent both deep shadows and hot highlights within the same frame.
About REDCODE RAW
REDCODE RAW is the format of choice for the EPIC-W. RED's versatile raw codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media.
Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The EPIC-W uses sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions, requiring wider lenses to compensate for the additional crop.
Joining the DSMC2 lineup, EPIC-W benefits from the advanced modularity of the RED ecosystem and offers cable-free peripherals, an integrated mounting plate, wireless control, and compatibility with a growing supply of modules and accessories. Also featuring interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts, RED EPIC-W provides an all new perspective with full sensor coverage and support for your arsenal of S35 glass.
