RED Epic on SFH-30 

The highly anticipated release of the RED Epic has begun rolling out with production versions now quickly making their way on to film sets and motion control rigs. We gave a new Epic, supplied by RED Europe based at Pinewood Studios, a test with one of the smallest of our products, the SFH-30 head.

It was like the head was designed with the Epic in mind. As you can see from the photo our SFH-30 pan tilt head fits the camera perfectly, right on the optical axis. With the SFH-30 weighing only 5kg combined with the Epic this is a very light weight package that can produce some amazing remote head and motion control shots.

The big question asked by operators is: “Can we sync to the RED Epic for motion control?” From our initial tests it seems everything hardware related is there and almost fully functioning for using the Epic for live-action, stop-frame, time-lapse, high-speed and even speed ramping. A few eagerly anticipated firmware adjustments by RED and the camera will interface perfectly to motion control for any type of special effect, something very few digital cameras have managed so far.
