This is the last post in our exploration of 10 Things You Should Know Before Shooting with RED Epic:
10. The RED Epic is a Computer Inside of a Camera Body
As our series on the RED Epic comes to a close, it’s time to take a look at the most obvious, yet most often ignored part of the camera.
When I say ignored, I don’t mean people consciously choose not to acknowledge this, but more like we sometimes forget what we’re dealing with:
…a highly-sophisticated computer smooshed into the casing of a camera body.
It’s easy to look at the body of the Epic as a whole piece that slaps together with a lens, some monitors, batteries, and accessories. Configured correctly and mechanically pieced together to fit, the Epic gives us the opportunity to make amazing images.
But inside that one piece, the body, is a multitude of technological complexities you and I are unlikely to ever fully understand.
