Most importantly, the Epic-W is capable of shooting 8K using the full sensor at 30fps, with 35.4 Megapixels in each frame. As a result, it boasts incredible low light capabilities, impressive dynamic range. The camera also has lightning fast data rates up to 295 MB/S.
HELIUM sensor takes the next step in exceeding beauty offered by film – up to 17x more resolution than HD—and over 4x more than 4K.
The Super35 Sensor size of the Epic-W Helium means motion and stills lenses designed for the Super35 format will work perfectly and will therefore still allow high resolution 8K recording.
Suitable for major cinematic productions the RED EPIC-W’s is probably one of the most durable builds. This camera has unparalleled performance which has resulted in creating an industry standard among cameras. Furthermore, it is able to shoot REDCODE RAW in 8K as well as a 4K Prores or DNxHD/R Proxy Files simultaneously for even more simple and efficient post-workflow solutions.
With the ability to shoot 75fps(6K), 96fps(5K), 120fps(4K), 150fps(3K) and 240fps(2K) the Epic-W is therefore suitable for High Frame Rate and High Resolution shooting.
