The DRAGON sensor upgrade for the RED EPIC camera is the next evolution in sensor technology for high-end digital cinematography. It records in 6K resolution, which is 30% greater image information than 5K and 9x greater image information than standard 180p HD.

Pushing the boundaries of sensor depth, the DRAGON sensor records 15 stops of dynamic range, enabling post-production staff to pull back from bright blown out skies to dark underexposed blacks.

The camera has a number of specific benefits over other leading digital cinema cameras currently for hire:

- 6K resolution is ideal of VFX heavy shoots, enabling compositors and digital artists more freedom to work with images.
- High resolution, high-frame-rate shooting is unparalleled. 100fps at 6K records crystal clear slow motion images unlike anything else.
- 15 stops dynamic range is currently the greatest amount of latitude in any camera widely available.
- Lightweight, compact design consistent with the EPIC. Suitable for use with steadicam, tight spaces and gimbal rigs such as the DJI Ronin.
