With just a month to go before the EPIC sensor upgrades begin, the first real world images from the RED EPIC DRAGON have been released.
Mark Toia, a REDUser member was fortunate enough to get his hands on one of the first EPIC DRAGON cameras, and has released the above video. Mark reports that he’s received no input from Jim and the RED team, and that this test is completely impartial, and more of less straight out of the camera. Words from Mark:
“Jim and Jarred have not pressured me in anyway (surprisingly enough) which was great… if there is a problem or it did not meet my expectations, then I decided I would share good and bad…
So I’m glad they left me alone and a credit to them for trusting me…This is as basic a test as you can get, so there are no manipulated images… nothing went to Resolve or any other grading program other than RCX (REDCINE-X) No colour keying, no noise reduction, no nothing… This is as basic as it gets, straight out of the camera then into RCX for a very basic curve which was applied to a RED LOG film setting”
