The newly released and much talked about Dragon sensor by RED delivers on its promises with bold new features: 6K resolution, 16.5 stops of dynamic range and RED’s new color science.

With the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.

RED DRAGON cameras are equipped with the DSMC Interchangeable Optical Low Pass Filter System. All cameras come standard with the DSMC Skin Tone-Highlight OLPF (Low Light Optimized OLPF also available upon request).

We offer a few options in our RED Epic Dragon package: the OLPF (Skin Tone-Highlight or Low Light Optimized), the card sizes (64GB, 128GB or 256GB) and the type of battery (4x on board Red Volts, or 4x Anton Bauer HCX with the appropriate plate). Please make sure to specify preferences in the notes section of the wishlist or to our rental department when placing your order.
