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

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.

    Breaking news about the Scarlet and EpicScarlet
    Posted On 03/25/2009 22:19:48

    RED previews Scarlet, EPIC systems and Pro lenses

    RED has provided a few sneak peeks of its upcoming Digital Still and Motion Camera(DSMC) systems, EPIC and Scarlet, along with the new Pro series of lenses. The EPIC and Scarlet "brains" can be configured with a wide variety of options and accessories, each built upon the Mysterium-X and Mysterium Monstro sensors capable of resolutions well beyond standard 1080pHD.

    Scarlet can be used to shoot 3K at 120 frames per second, while also supporting up to 6K at 30 frames per second, with different lens mount options including Canon and Nikon.

    EPIC offers "master professional" shooting of 5K at 100 frames per second, 9K at 50 frames per second and all the way up to an astounding 28K at 25 frames per second, while stills can be captured with resolutions up to 261 megapixels.

    The new Pro series of ultra-high-end components will include an 18-85mm T2.9 zoom, with prime lenses ranging from a 300mm T2.9 to a 25mm T1.9. The Pro program features all newly designed, machined accessories with a number of new base plates, top and bottom mounts, BombEVF and more. 

    "The bench testing is beyond our widest dreams," said the company's leader, Jim Jannard. "As you know, we have lots of lenses here for testing. These new primes outperform them all... especially wide open... and it isn't close."

    The company had anticipated the first Scarlet devices to begin shipping sometime this spring, while the EPIC systems would hit the market later in the summer. Pricing for Scarlet should range between $2,500 to $12,000, while basic EPIC configurations carry prices from $28,000 to $55,000. Pricing and a timetable for the Pro lenses has yet to be announced. [

    Red One FAQ
    Posted On 01/22/2009 06:47:16

    Some FAQ answers

    What are the specs for the RED One Camera Audio?  What is the deal with the old and new boards?

    They are changing out the old audio boards for new ones on all the cameras but this will not include 5 channels.  But it will mean that there is no noise or hiss when phantom power is used.

    Should I stay with a tried and true camera like the Sony Z1 for workflow and usability reasons or should I shoot my next project with a RED One

    Depending on how long the project is and how good you are with figuring out workflows.  (Despite what others are saying) you can get great but not perfect footage off of a RED and edit pretty quickly with only a step or two.  I have a RED and a Z1 and there is no comparison.  I can easily tell the difference at SD and at HD they are night and day to my eyes.  No fake sharpening only real resolution.  The Depth of Field is obviously a great help in storytelling and the Dynamic Latitude makes it much easier to use.  You will need more light, but it is well worth it.
