The upgrade, previously claimed by the manufacturer to have exceeded expectations after internal testing, will let the camera film at 6K resolution at up to 100fps, and provides three additional stops over the Epic M-X. <br />

The company will be allowing early adopters to pre-order the upgrade now for $8,500, with the price rising to $9,500 on Thursday, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282827==http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/08/red-epic-dragon-sensor-updates-start-tomorrow-for-8-500/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">writes</a> <em>Engadget</em>.
