RED DIGITAL CINEMA EPIC-W overview

  • 1Description

The items in this B&H Kit have been hand-picked to provide you with the essentials to put together a shootable RED EPIC-W shooting package. It includes the camera BRAIN, a RED Aluminum 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 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 (Standard OLPF)

    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 aliasing or "stair-stepping" 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 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 (Optical Low-Pass Filter) 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
    User-programmable shaper 1D LUTs

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

    Designed for cable-free mounting to select DSMC2 RED cameras, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA Touch 4.7" LCD features 1280 x 720 resolution. The design of the LCD provides good off-axis viewing up to 160°, with 80° left, right, up, or down so 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 400 cd/m² and 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. A built-in mirror and image flip allow for 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.
  • RED DIGITAL CINEMA DSMC2 V-Mount Battery Module

    The DSMC2 V-Mount Battery Module from RED DIGITAL CINEMA is a low-profile, cable-free module that enables you to power your DSMC2 BRAIN and camera accessories using RED BRICK, REDVOLT-V, and other standard V-lock batteries. The V-lock mount and protected release button ensure ongoing power even during mobile shoots.

    This DSMC2 battery module offers a D-Tap connector on top and an auxiliary port on the side for powering peripherals and accessories. Together, the D-Tap and auxiliary connectors support a maximum combined current of 3.8A. The module also offers a DC input port that can be used to power the camera system when the module is attached to the BRAIN. When DC input power is supplied to the module and the camera is turned off, this module can also trickle-charge the attached V-lock battery.

    Manufactured from robust aluminum alloy, this DSMC2 battery module offers a blend of utility and power support in a lightweight and space-saving form factor. It is an ideal power solution for use with most DSMC2 expanders. Alternatively, connect the module directly to your DSMC2 BRAIN for a low-profile, battery-only power configuration.

  • 2 x Core SWX Nano V-Mount Battery

    Slimmer than its predecessor, the XPL90, the Core SWX Nano V-Mount Battery is lightweight, reliable, and powerful. While the form-factor may be small, the Nano-series batteries can support up to 8-amp draws at 14.8V. The slim enclosure is great for gimbal balancing, as the camera it's mounted to can use the extra space for fore/aft movement. In classic Core SWX fashion, the exterior of the battery has a rubberized feel for a sure grip. Accessories can be connected to both the USB and D-tap power outputs, allowing the Nano-series batteries to act as a power hub for your entire rig, not just your camera. With the 98Wh capacity, a 25-watt load can be sustained for approximately 3.5 hours. Real-time capacity can be checked using the 4-LED gauge on the side of the casing. This V-mount model communicates using the standard SMBUS protocol (found on most cameras that have a native V-mount, including RED DSMC2 cameras), sending battery metrics that can be monitored from the camera itself.
