Now Shooting with Red Dragon

Dragon: a large, scaly mythical creature that breathes fire and guards castles. Right?

Wrong! Dragon is the name that’s been given to the newest version of the Red Epic, which was already ground-breaking in its field. Tim is one of the first cinematographers in Australia to obtain one, and he is eager to put it through its paces.

The Red Epic Dragon camera takes things up a notch from the previous Red Epic; offering dynamic range once thought impossible, the Red Epic Dragon has impressive low light capabilities, increased resolution and new colour science. In particular, the new colour science makes a huge difference to the end result; primary colours appear brighter, while skin tones are softer and colour variations are more noticeable than ever.

Other stand-out features include:

  • Dynamic range around 16 and a half stops
  • Highest colour sensitivity ever measured
  • Exceptionally low noise levels
  • Can film hi-speed at hi-resolution, clocking 100fps at 6k resolution

The Dragon has had rave reviews from those lucky enough to have tested it.

It has already been used to shoot several high profile films, including ThorPayne and RedemptionBad NeighboursWalking with Dinosaurs 3DThe Expendables 3 and Gods of Egypt, which Tim has been on set at with his new gear.
