RED Epic-W Helium DSMC-2

EPIC-W carries on the legacy of the original EPIC, which became the industry workhorse upon its release in 2010. Powered by the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor, recipient of the highest DxOMark score ever, RED EPIC-W is capable of shooting 8K Full Format at up to 30fps. At full 8K resolution, EPIC-W captures 35.4 megapixels images, delivering more detail and creative possibilities in every frame. With HELIUM sensor advancements, RED EPIC-W boasts improved low light sensitivity and impressive dynamic range. 

Leveraging lightning fast data at rates of up to 275 MB/s, EPIC-W can record 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, RED EPIC-W provides an all new perspective with full sensor coverage and support for your arsenal of S35 glass.
