Red has today announced that they will be rolling out new updates for its Red Epic Dragon Sensor for us on the Epic-M and Epic-X, priced at $8,500.
Red has also revealed that they will be allowing users and the public see the portion take place for themselves at the NAB conference.
The updated Red Epic Dragon Sensor will allow users to enjoy 6k resolution together with 120 fps at 5K and 15+ stops of dynamic range in a slightly larger format, says Red. Red explained on their forum post earlier today:
“We finally have received the new ASICs to begin the process of upgrading Epic and Scarlet Cameras to the Dragon Sensor.

-Early adopters can pre-order the upgrade for $8500 ($1000 credit when invoiced)
-New EPIC-M Dragon pre-orders begin tomorrow for $29k. Ships after existing Epic-M owners have had opportunity to upgrade.
