Capture motion and stills in 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 frames per second (fps), or 6K Full Format at 75 fps, and take full advantage of an arsenal of features. The EPIC DRAGON offers an entirely modular design, interchangeable optical low-pass filters (OLPFs), and the unmatched image quality and dynamic range of the RED DRAGON® sensor.
The ultra-lightweight carbon fiber and magnesium used to construct this machined EPIC DRAGON BRAIN® and mount shave off over one full pound of total weight compared to a standard aluminum EPIC with a Titanium PL Mount. The built-to-order EPIC-M RED DRAGON (Carbon Fiber) W/ Side SSD Module (Carbon Fiber) and Magnesium Lens Mount also comes outfitted with red bolts, the DSMC FAN KIT 2.0 (TOP/BOTTOM), and ships in a custom EPIC-M carbon fiber case with laser-cut foam. The carbon fiber EPIC-M RED DRAGON is hand-assembled by a dedicated team in California. For steadicam, handheld or specialty rigs, the carbon fiber EPIC-M RED DRAGON is the ultimate combination of form factor, weight, and resolution.
This product also comes with a standard 2-year original warranty and the EPIC-M RED ARMOR extended warranty is also available. In addition, EPIC-M RED DRAGON (CARBON FIBER) owners will be eligible for special product offerings and order placement priorities.
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.
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.
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.
NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this product, additional processing time may be required.
