Absolutely Epic; featuring 5K sensor capable of capturing 1 to 120 frames per second at full resolution, RED’s remarkable Epic camera which was cited as the next generation of digital cinema, has now got its new black & white version, the Epic-M Monochrome. This exclusively new $42,000 black & white cinema camera from the master manufacturer of digital cinematography equipment follows in the footsteps of the
RED’s Epic-M Monochrome comes loaded with an all-new black-white and white-only Mysterium-X Monochrome sensor, which RED claims offers a total of 15-20 percent of increase in effective resolution over its chromatic cousin, along with the removal of the debayer process, resulting in the usage of every single individual pixel for luminance/image data.
The camera also incorporates new Low Pass Filter to accommodate the reduced pixel pitch and higher resolution, while the native ISO of 2,000, which is almost double than that of the Epic-M or Epic-X, delivers incredible sensitivity gain.
Pre-orders of this exclusive $42,000 (brain only) camera opened today, and the shipping will start on October 1st.
Speaking more about the cameras, we have earlier seen some of the world's most expensive cameras, besides the recent sale of rare 1923 Leica camera which got sold for whopping $2.8 million.
