RED announced a barrage of new products at NAB last week, including the details of the much anticipated Dragon sensor upgrade. For $6000, Epic owners will be able to upgrade their current sensors to a 6k sensor which will also offer improvements in dynamic range.
Lots of mount options out there now with Nikon and Leica having been added to the lineup. I was able to briefly try out one of the first Leica mounts with a Noctilux 50mm lens one evening, it is quite bizarre to have such a small lens on such a big camera but to have the option at all is pretty neat. Feature application is pretty limited due to the inability to add any kind of follow focus though but for hand held travel shooting it would be a lot of fun.
The Pro IO module is ‘shipping soon’ for $3750. These are all the Is and Os on this one side, these are no more on the other side. It’s quite bulky really and you’ll need to add a module adapter to it to allow you to put it onto the camera body as well as you can see in the next picture.
