RED EPIC-W with HELIUM 8K Sensor Hire

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.

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.

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.

Now Available for Rent at The Front.
