Get your RED EPIC-X. Stage 4 has just arrived. This means, everyone (not just RED ONE owners) who’s got the money can now deposit 10% of the price for an EPIC-X.

RED EPIC-X Stage 4 Preorder Deposit

Existing RED ONE customers have been the only group eligible to purchase EPIC-X via the Stage 2, 3, and 3.5 programs. That is, until now. Stage 4 is now open for all customers to purchase the most advanced DSMC® camera in the world.

Capable of capturing 5K resolution at up to 120fps, EPIC-X has been responsible for breathtaking images both at the newsstand and on the big screen. From fashion spreads to feature films, the versatility of our DSMC® camera system allows you to compromise nothing and shoot everything – all with one camera. Purchase a Canon or PL mount alongside an arsenal of accessories to customize your perfect camera configuration.

EPIC-X is now available on RED.com for $27,500 (brain only) or $31,000 when packaged with a Ti PL Mount and Side SSD Module. Don’t forget that both SCARLET and EPIC will experience a price increase January 1, 2012, so be sure to reserve now to lock in 2011 pricing.

For those interested in protecting their purchase, our RED ARMOR extended warranty program is available for both EPIC-X and SCARLET-X cameras. RED ARMOR provides an additional two years of protection, shielding your purchase for a total of three years.
