the old news about the red one epic camera
Posted On 03/30/2009 08:13:09 by blaremedia

RED is really going all out at NAB this year. In addition to that Scarlet 3K "pocket" camera, the RED ONE is getting seriously one-upped by the new top-of-the-line RED EPIC. This 5K camera has a full-frame S35mm Mysterium X sensor, and pretty much matches 35mm film resolution -- RED ONE topped out at 4K. FPS is limited to 100, which is to be expected with all those pixels to handle, but other features match that of other RED cams. Of course, the promise of the RED ONE "rendering obsolescence obsolete" has been slightly trampled by EPIC, but the good news is that RED will allow ONE customers to trade in their cameras for a full $17,500 credit towards the EPIC when it ships in 2009. Price? About $30,000.

Everything. RED’s world-class sensor development program made several huge breakthroughs, allowing resolution performance and read-reset times thought to be virtually impossible when EPIC was originally conceived. It became immediately obvious that by developing EPIC as a modular, component-based, building block concept, that the company’s ethos of Obsolescence Obsolete could be taken to a higher plane, offering a product that could be upgraded indefinitely by simply switching out the sensor/electronics package, while keeping all of the peripheral parts of the camera intact. Announced on November 13th, 2008, the NEW EPIC concept revolutionized camera design. Modularity would be the key, with all modules interchangeable and compatible with all current and future camera body designs. Instead of a single 5K camera body with integrated I/O and power/finder solutions, EPIC would become four individual bodies, or “Brains”, ranging from 5K to 28K, and almost infinitely configurable.

EPIC’s four models include EPIC S35 5K PRO CINEMA, EPIC FF35 6K PRO CINEMA, EPIC 645 9K PRO and EPIC 617 28K PRO.
