Latest RED EPIC-W PLUS Helium 8K large sensor digital film camera complete with OFFHOLLYWOOD Command RT integrated module for additional functionality.

This combination effectively turns a RED EPIC-W 8K camera into an EPIC-W PLUS with built-in WLCS receiver and lockit box, similar to Alexa PLUS.

Read VMI's article: WLCS Systems, All you need to know to explore the question of how to choose between the various systems and to introduce the range of WLCS systems which VMI arguably considers the best in their field and explain why we think that they work very well in given scenarios.

Lenses

Canon EF EOS DSLR Prime lens set optimised for cinema use.  

Compatible with DSLR use (Canon 7D, 5D, 1D) and EOS C300 without adaptation.  Also compatible with Panasonic AF-101 and other cameras with suitable lens adapter.  Please request suitable adapters when ordering.

VMI EOS sets have been modified to include a follow-focus ring which will allow an ARRI MFF1 follow focus to operate without attaching an external gear and the fronts have been modified to give a consistent 80mm donut size.

Please note that EOS lenses are designed to have iris controlled from the camera body, so as a rule, do NOT include a manual iris ring. If you plan to use these lenses with a manual camera (non Canon), such as Letus, RED etc without a digital lens conversion ring, then be aware that you will not be able to operate the iris ring and this will remain fully open whilst in use.

Front Element screw-in adapters

Note that VMI supplies all L-USM prime lenses with 80mm front element adapters, to allow them all to have a standard 80mm donut fitting for ease of using matte boxes.

However, these are removable to expose the original screw-in thread to fit screw-in adapters like the Genus variable ND screw-in filters.

The Canon L-USM Prime lenses 35mm, 50mm, 85mm & 135mm have a native 77mm thread adapter
The Canon L-USM Prime lenses 24mm has a native 82mm thread adapter
