RED Epic Dragon: New DxOMark King First to Break 100-point

DxOMark reviewed the highly configurable RED Epic Dragon cinema camera, which is the First camera to break the 100-point DxOMark sensor score barrier! The highly configurable RED Epic Dragon is the latest version of the firm’s original Epic-M Digital Still and Motion Camera (DSMC). Achieving the highest DxOMark score, the DxOMark score of RED Epic Dragon is 101 points, 5 point lead over previous DxOMark king: Nikon D800E. So RED Epic Dragon win the new DxOMark King.

RED Epic Dragon vs Nikon D800:

Conclusion from DxOMark:

While the results and quality of output from this specially-adapted Epic Dragon are awesome, it’s all the more extraordinary, considering the sensor size and pixel pitch. It’s hard to imagine anyone being disappointed by the Dragon’s performance (except maybe at extremely high ISO).

Given the Epic Dragon’s price tag, this camera isn’t for everyone, but it will appeal to those that demand the most nuanced color and with widest possible dynamic range.

More importantly, the ability to choose a high quality still photo from a movie sequence will be invaluable to time-pressured imaging professionals, in the studio or elsewhere. While this will take some time to filter down to consumer level HD-DSLRs, this new technology just may forever change the way both footage and stills are shot in the future.
