About the RED EPIC-W Gemini 5K S35 - Brain

RED EPIC-W carries on the legacy of the original RED EPIC, which became the industry workhorse upon its release in 2010.

Featuring Dual Sensitivity Modes, GEMINI is RED’s highest-sensitivity sensor to date and delivers exceptional low-light performance allowing for cleaner imagery with less noise and better shadow detail.

EPIC-W leverages lightning fast data rates up to 275 MB/s and records REDCODE RAW, as well as proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR—simultaneously.

Joining the DSMC2 lineup, EPIC-W benefits from the advanced modularity of the RED ecosystem and offers cable-free peripherals, an integrated mounting plate, wireless control, and compatibility with a growing supply of modules and accessories. Also featuring interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts, EPIC-W provides an all new perspective with full sensor coverage and support for your arsenal of S35 glass.

Optimised for Low-Light Performance

In Low Light Mode, GEMINI is RED’s highest sensitivity sensor to date. GEMINI provides significantly improved performance in low-light situations to capture cleaner imagery with less noise and better shadow detail than ever before.

Flexibility in any Situation

EPIC-W 5K S35 allows users to easily switch between the GEMINI sensor’s Standard Mode during well-lit conditions or Low Light Mode for darker environments. Creatives are able to quickly adapt to any lighting environment with the touch of a button, giving them the ability to use more of the natural light available.

Superior Image Quality

Capture cinematic images regardless of the lighting condition by combining RED’s enhanced image processing pipeline with GEMINI’s dual sensitivity and incredible dynamic range. EPIC-W 5K S35 lets content creators dial in the perfect shot and is RED’s tallest S35 sensor option – allowing for greater anamorphic lens coverage.  

NOTE: The EPIC-W BRAIN itself does not have a DC IN power port. A port expander or power module is required to power the camera. To construct a working configuration for any BRAIN, RED recommends an expander, battery, lens mount, display, and media.

NOTE: All EPIC-W BRAINs ship with a standard OLPF; an OLPF 2-pack is available for Skin Tone-Highlight and Low Light shooting environments.

NOTE: EPIC-W BRAINs are NOT compatible with 8K VV lens mounts.

NOTE: The GEMINI 5K S35 sensor is available as part of RED ARMOR-W for WEAPON cameras.
