Red announces new Epic 5k digital cinema camera out of nowhere


As if Scarlet wasn’t enough, Red today surprised many by launching a new flagship digital cinema camera known as the Red Epic.

It’s fairly similar to the Red One in most respects, except that instead of shooting in 4k, it shoots in 5k, which is fairly nuts.

It works with all current 35mm lenses the current Red One supports, as well as most of the other hardware.

It’s basically Red doing a zip-thump to the other companies trying to play catch up to last year’s hit Red One camera.
