With superior image quality and best-in-class resolution, RED EPIC-W with HELIUM™ 8K S35 sensor allows content creators everywhere to deliver ultra-detailed still and motion images. RED EPIC-W’s 35 million pixels capture subtle features and tiny nuances that can’t be seen at lower resolutions. At 35.4 megapixels, that’s 4x more resolution than 4K—and over 17x more resolution than HD.


Like the RED WEAPON 8K S35, RED EPIC-W combines advanced color science with incredible dynamic range. The result is cinema quality imagery with vivid colors plus detailed shadows and highlights to produce the most realistic images imaginable.


For cinematographers, 8K resolution offers more than just incredible detail. It delivers countless possibilities for reframing, VFX (visual effects), motion stabilization, supersampling footage, and more. More resolution boils down to the ability to do more with your footage in production—all without ever having to reshoot.


The RED EPIC-W is capable of recording REDCODE® RAW and proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD formats—simultaneously. More recording options and the raw power of REDCODE provide the freedom to choose the workflow that’s right for you. Take advantage of RED’s powerful non-linear editing application, REDCINE-X PRO, to cut dailies, make color corrections, and augment your workflow.


The DSMC2™ form factor is our smallest and lightest BRAIN ever. It is also compatible with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories—from RED and other third party manufacturers. Tack on interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts and RED EPIC-W gives you the ultimate control over your footage.

RED 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 30 frames per second (fps).

At full 8K resolution RED 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 rates up to 275 MB/s, RED EPIC-W can record REDCODE RAW, as well as proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR—simultaneously.

Joining the DSMC2 lineup, RED 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.

Note: This package includes 3 x OLPFs.

The RED Helium is available for rent and purchase at Lorne Lapham Sales & Rentals in Vancouver and can be shipped nationwide.
