Red, the make of high-end cinematographic cameras, will begin upgrading Epic-M and Epic-X cameras tomorrow to the new Dragon Sensor for the low price of $8,500. The upgrade will usher the already amazing cameras into the 6K era and will re-define the meaning of high definition.

The new sensor features 6K resolution with 120 frames per second possible at 5K, and features 15 stops of dynamic range. In an interesting turn of events, Red will let owners as well as the public watch the upgrade process live at their booth at NAB.

Red Epic camera owners who wait until Thursday to purchase the upgrade will have to pay $9,500. Those looking to purchase a new Epic-M with the Dragon Sensor pre-installed will be able to pre-order the camera tomorrow for $29,000. For smaller film makers who ordered the more budget friendly Scarlet, they will be able to upgrade to the Dragon Sensor in the near future. Scarlet Dragon pricing is forthcoming and we will keep you updated when more information is released.
