The new RED sensor is the ideal candidate for a versatile shoot. The RED EPIC-W GEMINI 5K S35 sensor is perfect for in low-light situations, allowing for a clean image with less noise and better shadow detail. Camera operators are also able to access to a dual-sensitivity mode, allowing you to shoot high quality images in both low-light and brighter situations. 

The Gemini sensor allows for an increased field of view at 2K and 4K resolutions compared to the higher resolution HELIUM sensor. The Gemini sensor is 30.72 mm x 18 mm, allowing greater anamorphic lens coverage compared with the HELIUM or RED DRAGON sensor.

The RED EPIC-W 5K camera and sensor combination captures 5K full format motion at up to 96 fps and incredibly fast data speeds of up to 275 MB/s. It can shoot 4K crop at 120 fps and can record ProRes and DNxHD/HR simultaneously at 4K. The camera includes RED’s built-in enhanced image processing pipeline, IPP2. Like all cameras in the DSMC2 line up, EPIC-W 5K is able to shoot simultaneous REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR recording.
