RED DIGITAL CINEMA EPIC-W overview

  • 1Description

The items in this B&H Kit have been hand-picked to provide you with the bare essentials to put together a shootable RED EPIC-W shooting package. It includes the camera BRAIN, a RED Titanium EF Mount, RED Touch 4.7" LCD, RED DSMC2 V-Lock Battery Module, 120GB RED MINI-MAG media, RED MINI-MAG Media Reader, two Core SWX HyperCore Slim for RED batteries, Core SWX Two-Position Charger, a RED SIDEWINDER multi-tool, and RED Work Mat. The EPIC-W shoots 8K resolution video at up to 30 fps, recording to REDCODE RAW, ProRes, or DNx. The HELIUM sensor features a 35.4 MP resolution, and can be windowed for capturing at higher frame rates. The components of the kit get you up and shooting with a viewfinder, which you need not only to see your footage, but also control the camera. The titanium EF Mount enables using your EF-mounted lenses, and is both lighter and stronger than the aluminum version. The HyperCore Slim batteries provide a full readout in the camera's viewfinder, and the included charger will simultaneously charge both batteries. The included multi-tool and work mat provide you with the tools to work on your camera and a portable non-slip surface on which to work.

  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA EPIC-W Brain with HELIUM 8K S35 Sensor

    With the EPIC-W Brain, RED brings the EPIC name back to the forefront, featuring their HELIUM 8K Super-35 sensor. While other RED cameras use sensors larger than Super 35, the HELIUM is unique in that it allows for high-resolution 8K recording while using classic cinema lenses designed for the Super-35 film format. While 8K exhibition is not mainstream, the extra recorded resolution is helpful for VFX artists and for future-proofing your productions for a time when 8K is standardized.

    REDCODE RAW is the format of choice for the EPIC-W. RED's versatile raw codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media.

    Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The EPIC-W uses sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions, requiring wider lenses to compensate for the additional crop.

    All of the EPIC-W's power is enclosed in a relatively small body comprised of magnesium and aluminum. The EPIC-W's size, or lack thereof, makes it very versatile. From studio tripod configuration to handheld and gimbal, drone, or vehicle mounted situations, the EPIC-W can handle it all, providing 8K raw files that punch above the camera's physical size.

    8K HELIUM Sensor
    At 35.4 megapixels, the HELIUM camera's 8K sensor can resolve the finest details in a captured image and render smooth lines and shapes without the "stairstepping" artifacts found in lower-resolution footage. If you need higher frame rates, lower resolutions and wider aspect ratios can yield up to 300 fps. RED measured the HELIUM sensor as having 16.5 stops of dynamic range, able to represent both deep shadows and hot highlights within the same frame.
    REDCODE RAW
    The cornerstone of RED's workflow is the robust REDCODE RAW file format. Using wavelet compression with ratios ranging from 2:1 to 22:1 REDCODE RAW offers the versatility of raw files but without the overwhelming storage requirements of uncompressed image data. Since REDCODE RAW has been around since the days of the RED ONE cinema camera, many common NLE software programs including Adobe Premiere Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Avid Media Composer can import and edit REDCODE RAW footage without transcoding, saving production time in the edit suite.

    Note: Not all compression ratios are available at all resolutions and frame rates
    Apple ProRes and Avid DNx Formats
    For projects requiring proxy files or quicker turnaround times than raw files permit, Apple ProRes or Avid DNx formats can be recorded at 4K and 2K resolutions directly to the onboard MINI-MAG media. Since these debayered video files can be recorded alongside the raw files, no extra time is required for transcoding the proxies. Bring the debayered files straight into your NLE and begin editing.
    DSMC2 Form Factor
    Like the preceding DSMC cameras, RED designed the DSMC2 camera line to be modular to fit a wide range of production workflows. Smaller and lighter than the original DSMC design, when stripped down to the brain itself, the EPIC-W becomes an 8K gimbal workhorse. Likewise, add DSMC2 modules to the rear to gain professional I/O connections, and battery power. Many other parts of the DSMC2 design are meant to be interchangeable. Swap out the lens mounts to open up new libraries of lenses. Exchange the included standard OLPF for alternative image renderings at the sensor level. Mount an EVF without cables that can get snagged or use a separately available adapter to attach RED LCDs via LEMO cable.
    Color Management
    Supports 33x33x33, 32x32x32, 26x26x26, and 17x17x17 3D LUTs
    Variable number of 3D LUT outputs with DSMC2 expander module

  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 Red Touch 4.7" LCD for Select RED Cameras

    Designed for cable free mounting to select RED cameras, the RED Digital Cinema DSMC2 Red Touch 4.7" LCD features 1280 x 720 resolution with good off axis viewing up to 160°. The design of the LCD provides good off-axis viewing up to 80° left, right, up, or down, which means you don't have to be directly aligned with the viewfinder to see an optimal image. The LCD features multi-touch control, with hard navigation buttons on the side.

    With a brightness level of 400cd/m² and a contrast ration of 1000:1 providing a clear image, the RED Touch LCD mounts directly to your camera without any cables needed between the LCD and your camera. It can mount directly onto DSMC2 cameras including the WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 6K, EPIC/SCARLET-W, EPIC/SCARLET M-X, EPIC/SCARLET DRAGON, and the RED RAVEN. Built-in mirror and image flip allows monitoring while upside down for special applications.

    The LCD is designed to mount directly to select cameras for cable free operation.
    Used in conjunction with the optional DSMC2 LEMO Adapter Collection, you can mount your DSMC2 display away from the camera body.
    The built-in hinge provides up to 240° of tilt, 90° forward and 150° back, which allows the LCD to fold flat on your camera.
    You can use an optional DSMC2 LEMO Adapter B to mount the LCD to RED EPIC or RED SCARLET cameras.
  • 2 x Core SWX HyperCore Slim for RED V-Mount Battery (14.8V)

    Retaining all the major features of the original HyperCore battery, the HyperCore Slim is simply a slimmer version intended for UAV and gimbal applications as well as any other application requiring a low-profile battery. Rated at 82Wh nominal, the HyperCore Slim is also TSA-friendly, falling under the 98Wh air travel limitations, and this is reinforced by the "Air Travel Compliant" logo on the front of the battery. The Core SWX HyperCore Slim RED (14.8V) is a V-mount version designed to RED's communication protocol. It'll deliver the exact percentage of remaining capacity to RED viewfinders/LCDs.

    The HyperCore cell is known for being able to handle 10A draws for extended periods without diminishing service life, so you can rely on the battery for a long time. Additionally, being such a workhorse, it's perfectly suitable for your RED Scarlet as well as Epic, Weapon, and generally, any other camera we can expect from RED in the future. However, being a about an inch slimmer than the average battery, it also provides the benefit of being able to clear most, if not all, gimbal rails. In addition to this advantage, the HyperCore Slim RED also offers 1,000 charge/discharge cycles, safety sensors, D-tap output, advanced hibernation feature, quick-glance 4-LED gauge on the side, and charge routine management, and an over-molded, rubberized housing that both protects against impacts as well as provides an ergonomic, non-slip handle. Based on a 25W load, the HyperCore Slim RED is estimated to run for approximately 3.2 hours.

    The hibernation feature was designed to minimize issues resulting from self-discharge, and preserve state of charge, leaving you making fewer trips to the charger. This feature consists of an accelerometer tied to a clocking algorithm that gauge inactivity and trigger a deep sleep after 48 hours of continuous non-use. However, upon the slightest movement, the battery comes back to life at maximum capacity.

    The HyperCore Slim RED will charge on your RED charger, as well as IDX, Sony, and Core SWX V-mount chargers, making it a very charger-compatible battery and allowing you to keep any compatible charger you may already own.

    Note: The HyperCore Slim RED can be used on non-RED cameras as well, but you will only be able to get basic information communicated to the viewfinder.
