RED Epic Sensor Reviews – Kevin Carter/DxOMark and More…


Kevin Carter our Head of Technical Hardware as well as the Lead Technical Editor/Consultant for DxOMark, the British Journal of Photography among many others has just completed some huge technical reviews for DxOMark. Not least the RED Epic Dragon review ‘the first camera to break the 100-point DxOMark sensor score barrier’. He’s also reviewed the Leica X Vario sensor, the Leica S sensor, the Olympus Stylus 1 sensor, the Sony Alpha A500 sensor and a range of the best lenses for the Sony Alpha A300 both primes and zooms. Phew, no wonder I haven’t seen him!

The DxOMark lab tests represent the gold standard for technical tests and these are used by all the large review sites including dpreview, Popular Photography etc as a basis to all their reviews.

I’ve included all the links below, I appreciate this is not mobile but many of us are interested in all things photography related, so thought it would appeal…
