About

RED recently announced the EPIC-W, a DSMC2-based brain with the new HELIUM 8K S35 sensor. At 29.9mm x 15.77mm, the HELIUM 8K is slightly smaller than the DRAGON 6K sensor found in the EPIC or WEAPON, so lens choices should be very straightforward. Previously, the HELIUM 8K was only found in a limited quantity, special-edition body with a unique white finish (affectionately dubbed “Storm Trooper” models). Only a handful were available for sale on reduser.net, but they were never meant for general release. With the release of the EPIC-W, the HELIUM sensor is the fourth and latest evolution of RED sensor technology. What’s important to remember is that although HELIUM 8K offers the same 8192 x 4320 resolution as the previously announced WEAPON DRAGON 8K Vista Vision upgrade, the HELIUM is an all new design.
