GEMINI Offers Flexibility in Any Situation

In Low Light mode, GEMINI is RED's highest sensitivity sensor to date, with significantly increased performance in low-light situations and improved performance in shadows due to the new design.

Superior Image Quality

EPIC-W can capture cinematic images regardless of which sensor you choose. If resolution is important, the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor, recipient of the highest DxOMark score ever, allows content creators everywhere to deliver ultra-detailed still and motion images. If flexibility or performance in low-light is key, GEMINI 5K S35 sets new standards in versatility and shadow detail.

Workflow_product_brochure

Your Workflow. Simplified.

EPIC-W is capable of recording REDCODE® RAW and proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD formats—simultaneously. More recording options and the raw power of REDCODE provide the freedom to choose the workflow that's right for you. And now EPIC-W can monitor and control the new image processing pipeline (IPP2) in-camera.
