DSMC Interchangeable OLPF System Modification

The DSMC® Interchangeable OLPF System allows you to swap the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) system in your EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON®. RED® can modify your camera to the new DSMC Interchangeable OLPF System for free if you have an EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON with the fixed OLPF system.


All EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON with the fixed OLPF system are eligible for the free DSMC Interchangeable OLPF System modification. Any EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON invoiced on or before October 3, 2014 is eligible for the DSMC Interchangeable OLPF System modification. 


Turnaround Time

The turnaround time is 1 to 2 business days.

If any issues are detected with your camera during the modification process, RED will repair your camera if your camera is covered under warranty. If any out-of-warranty repairs are needed, RED will provide you with a service quote for the cost of the repair.

NOTE: The turnaround time does not include the transit time to and from the drop-off RED facilities.

NOTE: Any other offered or requested service options are processed separately and add to the anticipated turnaround time.
