Canon C300 Mark II and RED Epic Dragon Updates

Hello friends. We here at FiveSix Productions find that kindness and cooperation often goes a long way. We like to help our production friends and partners be the best that they can be. We were doing our routine upkeep of our computers, cameras, etc., and were going through some firmware updates. It can sometimes be hard to remember to stay up on that, especially when we get into these busy periods. Long story short: if you have a Canon C300 Mark II, there is a firmware update that will be available July 28th (Thurs.), and RED just put an update out a couple days ago. So there you have it, go make sure you're reaping all the benefits of these awesome tools. If you don't have an Epic Dragon or C300 Mark II, but need one, give our friends at F11 Rentals a shout, and they'll get you squared away.

Red Dragon

Unleash the Dragon #EpicRedDragon #LasVegasVideoProduction #6K #We'veGotTheKs

FiveSix Productions just completed the upgrade of its Red Camera to the Epic Red Dragon giving FiveSix the ability to shoot 6K. 6K images provide detail that surpasses that of 35mm film and moves into the realm of 65mm film; or, with each frame being a 19 megapixel RAW image, it is nine times more detailed than 1080p HD footage.

These may seem like overwhelming figures, but even if you don't require 6K, outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD assures the product will be clearer, crisper, and way more awesome.

The Red Dragon upgrade also provides an incredible native dynamic range of 16.5+ stops on it's improved sensor. This will greatly expand the ability to successfully work in even more challenging lighting situations, and come out with the best, truest product possible.

Hopefully, 6K opportunities abound this coming year for the crew of FiveSix Productions.

Happy shooting.
