RED Epic Dragon - Camera Sensor

The Epic Dragon camera has the DRAGON CMOS sensor of 19.4 megapixels with a maximum working area of ​​6144 x 3160 pixels in an area of ​​30.7mm (width) x 15.8mm (height), re-emerging then, in a diagonal of 34.5mm. This sensor has been developed to achieve high resolutions, and it provides a dynamic range of 16.5 stops. It is an incredibly versatile sensor: 2.4: 1 in 6K RAW or in Full Frame through captures in anamorphic format in 5K RAW. There are few things that the DRAGON cannot do. The Epic Dragon camera can even record up to 300fps in 2K, reducing speed up to 12 times.  Camera rental in Camaleon Rental.

Epic Dragon - Recording formats

The main recording format of Red is the REDCODE. This file extension effectively encodes the digital sensor measurements of the camera itself, maximizing post-production capabilities. The system designed by RED stores each color channel of the sensor separately, which allows a tremendous amount of information to be modified later. However, as expected, this kind of file so rich in information is also tremendously heavy in terms of storage, so the Epic DRAGON camera allows you to apply compression to the file that varies between 2: 1 and 22: 1, allowing to choose the precise balance between quality and file weight. Among the other formats offered by the Epic Dragon, it also gives the possibility to roll in RAW from 12 to 16 bits. Also, even in anamorphic (1.3x and 2x) in any of the available resolutions
Depending on the image format you choose, the Epic Dragon Camera provides a different maximum frame rate:
  • 100fps at full resolution 6K, 2.4: 1
  • 120fps at resolutions of 5K, 2.4: 1 and 96fps 5K, Full Frame
  • 150fps at resolutions of 4K, 2.4: 1
  • 200fps at 3K resolutions, 2.4: 1
  • Maximum frame rate from 300fps to 2K, 2.4: 1


In terms of basic reproduction speeds of the project, it allows to choose several predetermined frame rates: 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 47.98, 50, 59.94 and 60fps (regardless of the chosen resolution).
The EPIC DRAGON camera takes advantage of the high data transmission rates provided by RED MINI-MAG cards, exceeding 200MB / s with capacities between 480Gb and 960Gb or 170MB / s choosing capacities of 120Gb and 240Gb. Camera rental in Camaleon Rental.

Epic Dragon camera - Color, sound, monitoring and remote control

The Epic Dragon camera can manage 3D LUTs and HDR live thanks to the Redcast module, which allows the signal already processed in order to view the result of the shot on the monitor directly ,or broadcast it in broadcast productions.
The Epic Dragon camera also has two uncompressed audio channels, 24-bit at 48 kHz. It also gives us the option of having 4 channels with the AES3 or AES / EBU interface, designed to transmit 4 audio signals in real time without any compression.
The remote control of the Epic Dragon Camera can be carried out through REDLINK thanks to the REDMOTE and the RED COMMAND PROTOCOL or link modules. It can also be controlled remotely via Ethernet, RS232 and GPI Trigger data transmission connection. Camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
The monitoring options are very diverse. The RED Epic Dragon camera gives us the possibility to use modules with DSMC2 connection to provide the inputs and outputs that each occasion requires, connecting the relevant device directly to the back of the body. We can find power interface pins (DC IN), HDMI, 3G-SDI (HD-SDI), CTRL and time and Genlock ports. We will also find a 3.5mm microphone mini-jack input and 3.5mm headphone output level on the Epic Dradon Camera.
There are different monitoring options for Epic Dragon like RED Touch 4.7 "LCD, RED Touch 9.0", RED Tocuh 5.0 ", RED PRO 7.0" or RED Touch 7.0 "(compatible with Lemo DSMC2 connections that the camera incorporates); but we also find a port for B adapter cable and LCD / EVF.

RED Epic Dragon camera workflow

RED recommends the use of REDCINE X-PRO software when working with REDCODE format. This software package contains a series of programs designed to transcode and edit the image recorded in REDCODE RAW. Apart from transcoding, they allow the image to be manipulated from the point of view of scaling, re-framing or color correction while saving the RAW file intact, without suffering loss.
