The EPIC-W and WEAPON HELIUM 8K S35 boasts a huge 35.4 megapixel sensor. The WEAPON HELIUM 8K gives filmmakers the freedom to capture 8K 2.4:1 at up to 75 frames per second (fps), and 8K Full Frame at 60 fps. The EPIC-W captures 8K 2.4:1 and Full Frame at 30 fps. Both have 16.5+ stops of dynamic range, 3.3 lbs (BRAIN with Integrated Media Bay), and Integrated REDLINK WiFi Antenna. Their enhanced design features a number of enhancements: including automatic black shade calibrations, improved low light sensor performance, and an intelligent OLPF system. EPIC-W and WEAPON HELIUM 8K S35 cameras are also equipped to support 3D LUTs—giving colorists and post production teams more control than ever before.
Capturing at higher resolutions creates more immersive and evocative imagery—and RED has been the industry standard for high quality imaging since igniting the 4K revolution in 2007. RED sensors capture up to 17x more resolution than HD while shooting in 8K and 9x more resolution while shooting in 6K. From the finest details to the most expansive vistas, everything comes to life with unprecedented realism—offering you more creative flexibility in post, better VFX, smoother lines, and future-proofed footage as formats evolve.
INCREDIBLE DYNAMIC RANGE.
RED sensors offer over 16 stops of dynamic range, something that was once thought impossible for a digital motion camera. Wide latitude provides cinematographers and photographers with the ability to take on challenging lighting conditions without the need for excessive filtration—making it easier to take on the unpredictable and capture the unbelievable.
YOUR WORKFLOW. SIMPLIFIED.
Shooting RAW has never been this easy. RED’s proprietary REDCODE RAW file format, also referred to simply as R3D, gives you maximum flexibility during post. R3D files can be used within industry standard post-production suites for editing, VFX, conforming, and grading. The structure of R3D data allows for non-destructive editing—maintaining the integrity of the original footage while maximizing image quality and reducing storage requirements. In addition, our DSMC2 cameras offer even greater creative freedom via their ability to simultaneously record in both R3D and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD.
STILLS FROM MOTION.
RED cameras pack the same detail you expect from a DSLR into a cinema camera, allowing you to seamlessly pull stills from any of your video shoots. Our RED sensors produce up to 35 million pixels in any shot, blurring the line between motion and still cameras—giving you the best of both worlds.
READY FOR ANYTHING.
RED cameras are engineered from the ground up to deliver cutting-edge performance in any environment. Whether you build your camera to be as lightweight as possible, or work with a complex studio configuration, our cameras will deliver cinema-quality images and professional-grade stills wherever your journey takes you.
FUTURE-PROOF YOUR INVESTMENT.
RED is committed to placing adaptable, high-end creative tools in the hands of professionals everywhere. We offer a variety of upgrade paths to cutting-edge products, accessory compatibility within our camera families, and imagery that is ready for the next generation of high resolution displays. We recognize shooters should have the option to move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear and this makes us relentless in our mission to make OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE.
Just one of the advantages of the DSMC2 lineup is the integration of the intelligent DSMC2 OLPF system. Now it is easier than ever to optimize your footage for your shooting environment—by quickly swapping out your optical low pass filter. Choose from our growing line of DSMC2 OLPF options including Standard, Low Light Optimized, Skin Tone-Highlight, or all three with the 3-Pack.
STANDARD: This OLPF offers the perfect balance of light gathering and protective qualities for most shooting environments. It is the ideal OLPF for demanding shooting schedules, and balanced for both light and dark environments—ensuring you’re always ready to capture the perfect shot.
SKIN TONE-HIGHLIGHT: This OLPF captures and preserves color quality in highlights, bright colors, and well-lit environments. It is the ideal OLPF for skin tones and best with lower ISO values.
LOW LIGHT OPTIMIZED: This OLPF provides excellent color and tonal reproduction in dim to dark environments. Use this OLPF to capture and preserve color quality in mid-tones, darks, and shadows.
