When we did our Cinema Vintage Lens Test in Fall of 2016, there was no question as to what camera we'd use. We were testing 40 vintage lenses and we wanted to conduct a test that as clinical as possible. We chose the RED Epic Dragon simply because, RED's color science and sensor technology (when in ideal and controlled lighting) can reproduce incredibly accurate images. We weren't going for beauty first. We simply wanted to capture these amazing lenses and all of their flaws, characteristics and qualities for everyone to see.

The Epic Dragon proved to be an amazing camera for this. I've also chosen it for a number of my own projects. Especially when shooting green screen or when resolution matters!

Description

Your image is only as good as the color science behind it. The new RED DRAGON sensor features our most advanced color science yet, taking advantage of vastly improved dynamic range and low-light capabilities. Skin tones are softer, primary colors are more vibrant, and subtle color variations are discernibly remarkable. EPIC DRAGON cameras capture images that are true to life, with colors that can only be described as "brilliant".


The RED DRAGON offers dynamic range that was once thought impossible for a digital sensor. Such wide latitude provides cinematographers and photographers alike with the ability to take on challenging lighting conditions, without the need for excessive filtration. Improved low-light capabilities let you shoot at ISO 2000 and still produce a clean image fit for theatres or publication. Dilated exposure and improved sensitivity makes it easier to take on the unpredictable and capture the unbelievable.


Compact form factor, 6K resolution, and wide dynamic range makes the EPIC DRAGON a perfect solution for 3D capture. Ample resolution provides VFX artists with a more malleable image that is easier to manipulate and compose for 3D work. As with the EPIC MYSTERIUM-X, the EPIC DRAGON is widely compatible with 3ality Digital 3D rigs, including the EPIC-inspired ATOM 3D rig. When you’re done shooting, you can bring your stereo 3D footage into REDCINE-X PRO for viewing, color correcting, HIT/VIT adjustments, and exporting. When it comes to 3D blockbusters, there’s only one choice if you’re thinking big picture.


The EPIC DRAGON clocks up to 100 fps at full 6K resolution, merging the worlds of hi-speed with hi-resolution. For even faster speeds, simply drop your resolution and take advantage of maximum speeds of up to 150 fps. With blazing fast hi-speed capabilities, there’s nothing that gets past your EPIC DRAGON.
