New Epic Firmware

Red EpicA new version of the firmware has just been released for the Epic – version 3.2.16. As always Red is ironing out bugs and improving with each release. They also add new features on most firmware updates.

The one major fix in my opinion with this build is that now the Epic outputs the correct size frame via HD SDI. This means that external recorders can now be used to enable direct to edit shooting with a recorder like the Samurai or the Pix 240.

The major new feature of this build is the addition of 5K HD, 3K HD, 2K HD, 1K HD formats. These new formats mean that you can easily shoot any resolution with Epic in a 16:9 aspect ratio making post simple.

The rest of the updates are :

Added 1K WS format (Epic 400fps, Scarlet 120fps)
