The RED EPIC-W HELIUM 8K S35 Brain is a high-resolution cinema camera that introduces a lot of key features, including:

  • 8K resolution at 8192 × 4320

  • 275 MB/s data-transfer rates

  • DSMC2 Interchangeable OLPF system for greater versatility

  • Fully compatible with RED DSMC2 components

8K Resolution. This is the banner headline that gets people in the door. The all-new HELIUM sensor pushes RED to a monstrous 8192 × 4320. That means you get video that’s four times the resolution of DCI 4K at 60 fps and still images at up to 35.4MP. In addition to an increase in resolution, you will also see improved low light performance and greater dynamic range.

High Data Rates. The EPIC-W can handle 275 MB/s transfer rates, which allows you to record REDCODE RAW files at the highest quality, while also recording ProRes proxy files in 422 HQ, 422, and 422 LT at 4K resolutions.

Greater Versatility. The EPIC HELIUM features the DSMC2 Interchangeable OLPF system. This means that you can optimize your footage for your environment by swapping out the optical low pass filter. We send the DSMC2 Standard OLPF installed for balanced shooting.

Semi-Backwards Compatible. A fully redesigned brain also means support for some components/accessories has been dropped. Any RED component labeled DSMC2 is fully compatible, and we include the DSMC2 Lemo A Adapter to retain compatibility with original DSMC Touch LCD monitors.
