Resolution Matters

More Pixels. More Potential.

With superior image quality and best-in-class resolution, EPIC-W with HELIUM™ 8K S35 sensor allows content creators everywhere to deliver ultra-detailed still and motion images. EPIC-W’s 35 million pixels capture subtle features and tiny nuances that can’t be seen at lower resolutions. At 35.4 megapixels, that's 4x more resolution than 4K—and over 17x more resolution than HD.

Superior Image Quality

Quality Without Compromise.

Like the WEAPON 8K S35, EPIC-W combines advanced colour science with incredible dynamic range. The result is cinema quality imagery with vivid colours plus detailed shadows and highlights to produce the most realistic images imaginable.

Expanded Frame Of Mind

Unlimited Creative Options.

For cinematographers, 8K resolution offers more than just incredible detail. It delivers countless possibilities for reframing, VFX (visual effects), motion stabilisation, supersampling footage, and more. More resolution boils down to the ability to do more with your footage in production—all without ever having to reshoot.

A Better Workflow

More Creative Power From Shoot To Finish.

The 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. Take advantage of RED's powerful non-linear editing application, REDCINE-X PRO, to cut dailies, make colour corrections, and augment your workflow.

Dsmc2 Modularity

Intelligent Engineering. Customisable For You.

The DSMC2™ form factor is our smallest and lightest BRAIN ever. It is also compatible with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories—from RED and other third party manufacturers. Tack on interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts and EPIC-W gives you the ultimate control over your footage.
