EPIC DRAGON UPGRADE

The EPIC RED DRAGON enables you to capture motion video and still images at 6K resolution from 1-100 frames per second (FPS), or up to 120 FPS at 5K.

All EPIC MYSTERIUM-X owners are eligible for the EPIC RED DRAGON Upgrade. Sign in to your account on RED.com to see a list of cameras eligible for upgrade. If you sign in to your account and are unable to select your camera, contact your Bomb Squad representative for more information. You are responsible for shipping the BRAIN to the RED Irvine facility for the upgrade procedure. RED recommends that you use a DSMC Front Body Cap to protect your sensor and OLPF during transit to RED. Once your BRAIN is received, you will be sent an email from RED informing you of the status of your upgrade.

For any questions regarding the upgrade process, please visit our support section or contact your Bomb Squad representative at +1-949-206-7900.

If you purchase the EPIC RED DRAGON Upgrade, you are eligible to buy a RED ROCKET-X® for a promotional bundle price of $4,495. Just add RED ROCKET-X to your cart and the discount will be automatically applied.


6K Resolution

Every 6K frame is a 19 megapixel RAW image, which is up to 9x more pixels than 1080p HD. The amount of picture detail found in a 6K image goes beyond that of 35mm, comparing only to 65mm in image density. This means more precise VFX plates, reframing flexibility, and less aliasing artifacts and moiré. Even when outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD, your images will be cleaner and crisper compared to those captured at lower resolutions. When it comes to resolution, bigger is better.


16.5+ Native Stops

RED DRAGON sensors have a native dynamic range of over 16.5+ stops, giving you a huge advantage in challenging lighting conditions. An improved signal-to-noise ratio gives you confidence that your picture quality will be print and cinema ready from ISO 200 to 2000. Fewer filters, fewer IR issues, and less noise gives you more opportunities for perfect exposure.

New Color Science

Vibrant colors, smoother skin tones, and improved tonal variations are just a few of the advantages of the RED DRAGON color science. Brilliant hues and accurate subtleties stand out in every frame, producing RAW images that are true to life. The next generation of sensor technology requires the next generation of color science.
