RED overcomes EPIC bug, gets US production

updated 10:30 am EDT, Tue July 6, 2010

RED EPIC, Scarlet back on track

RED's Jim Jannard late last night updated videographers on the status of its next generation greater-than-HD cameras. He now says the company has overcome the major bug that had kept the EPIC and Scarlet back, and at least the 5K-capable EPIC will be made in the US. The delays have pushed back the cameras by an unspecified amount of time, but the founder was adamant the development time was also to ensure the camera was completely stable when it shipped.

"The RED ONE is now one of the most reliable cameras in the industry (after a humble beginning)," Jannard wrote. "EPIC will not be a step backward."

Scarlet will still follow sometime after EPIC, but it should follow sometime later. Working prototypes already exist, however. The very highest resolution version of EPIC, with an extra-large 28K sensor, now isn't due to ship until late 2011 or early 2012 as a result of the ripple effect.

The cameras have been heavily delayed since their originally planned 2009 launches, but filmmakers this year are also getting access to upgraded RED ONE cameras as part of the Tattoo testing program that use the newer EPIC-X sensor in the existing body.
