RED EPIC Monochrome: First impressions

Published in Production

We've been given a RED EPIC M Monochrome to use for a couple of weeks, lent to us by RED’s European headquarters in Pinewood Studios, West London. Why does this very high resolution black and white video camera even exist?

When cameras are Good Enough

Published in Technology & Computing

Have cameras reached the point where we need to be looking beyond resolution to judge their film-making abilities?

RED unleashes the Dragon

Published in Business

As expected Red have announced the release of the new Red Dragon sensor. The Specs are: Epic Dragon 6K. 6144 x 3160 resolution at up to 100fps. Three additional stops of dynamic range over Epic M-X

This sensor sees everything

Imagine Google Earth or Google Maps represented not as a still image, but as a full-motion video, showing the positions of cars, people and even birds in real time

Recently I've been expressing the view that all cameras are pretty much the same, because they all use the similar technology (give or take) for their sensors. I don't mean to be unnecessarily cruel about the work of camera manufacturers – taking an electronic component such as an imaging sensor and making it into a usable tool is far from trivial. Still, the absolute performance of cameras is determined by what you can get off the lump of silicon behind the lens

How to understand Dynamic Range

Camera performance is now measured as much in terms of Dynamic Range as Resolution. Phil Rhodes explains this essential aspect of camera technology

Making sense of sensors: Part 1 of 2

Film always used to be the main thing that determined how a photograph looked. Now, it's the sensor. So camera manufacturers have taken on a huge extra responsibility!

Dramatic claims from RED: 21 stops from Dragon!

Published in Technology & Computing

RED and, say, Sony are diametrically different in so many ways, and perhaps no more so than in the way that the EPIC manufacturer absolutely loves to let information about new products seep from every pore

Last time, we discussed some of the technical concerns of lens selection and the issues of compatibility with sensors of various configurations and sizes. In this part, we'll look at the effects sensor size has on photography and the engineering compromises behind lenses and sensors
