Following on the heels of Leica’s M monochrome digital stills camera, RED have surprised us with the announcement of a black and white version of their flagship Epic cinema camera – RED Epic-M Monochrome. By removing the need to de-bayer the sensor data Red have managed to achieve a much higher quality black and white image than a standard Epic.
