Make the most of your next production by using the RED Epic-W’s 8K Helium sensor for bigger, better pictures.
The additional resolution is particularly useful when shooting plates for use in 360/VR projects, or for use in productions where image manipulation is key. Our Epic-W packages come with a wide selection of accessories, batteries and media so you’re able to shoot just as easily in the field as in the studio.
In addition to RED’s native REDCODE RAW, the Epic-W is capable of generating simultaneous 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD proxies, streamlining the post-production process and giving you the ability to ingest footage for editing far quicker than with previous RED cameras.

RED’s original compact 6K digital cinema camera – the RED Epic Dragon.
Boasting an upgraded & enhanced sensor, the Dragon records in RAW format up to 6K (19 megapixel) resolution, has an impressive 16.5 stops of dynamic range and can achieve 100fps at 6K or up to 300fps at 2K.
We stock a wide array of accessories and lens mounts for the RED Dragon, allowing you to choose from an extensive list of lenses and grip to build a bespoke Epic Dragon shooting package.
The RED Rocket-X is the latest generation of RED’s data management cards optimised to deal with the 6k Dragon sensor.
We house this full-length PCIe card in a Sonnet Echo Express III Thunderbolt 2 enclosure to make this powerful DiT tool compatible with most MacBook Pro laptops. This also allows you to take the Rocket-X with you anywhere you can draw power on location to keep your data flowing freely and speed up post-producton, saving time and money down the line.
Our RED Rocket-X is fully supported by our in-house post-production team, Post Blue, who offer additional transcoding, online & offline editing and grading.
Shoot Blue is an amazing rental company who's reliable and competitive in what they offer. I've had the opportunity to work with them on several different projects and their service has always been top. Highly recommended!
Shoot Blue have been my supplier of choice since 2007 ever since they were first recommended to me. Even if you're just doing a small shoot you're treated with the same care and attention as when you're on a big shoot and they go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Their prices are very competitive and the service is top notch and I always feel comfortable turning to them for advice and asking for recommendations on kit. When you hire their in house crew to work on your shoots the crew members are always really knowledgeable about the equipment and well trained, they are reliable and come to the set with a positive attitude and work hard to get the best results possible. I would highly recommend them to any independent filmmakers.
As a business owner, Director Shoot Blue has helped me build who I am as a story teller behind the camera. In my view the most important thing to my success as a story teller is knowing that I have a rental house you can always depend on. Shoot Blue has delivered outstanding service time after time again. Great job to the team :)
Shoot Blue are a fantastic rental firm with lovely staff and awesome equipment. They supported my recent commercial production very well indeed and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend them to any size project. They deliverted and collected the kit as neccesary, modified the order when production requirements changed and generally helped the whole process go smoothly.
