Red Epic Fan2.0 Upgrade
With its tiny form factor the Epic lost the advantage of a large heat sink that a bigger camera body provides. Not that I would want to increase its scale, but the smaller form necessitated the introduction of a fan to cool the cameras hard working 'brain'... Which brought with it certain sound considerations.
Until now that is. With the Fan 2.0 Upgrade there is a beefed up front fan replacing the smaller old model, and two new fans that extract the air from above to increase the flow efficiency. The result, together with the firmware tweak of the 'Adaptive' mode, is a far more silent camera.
My post-upgrade tests today show the body staying cooler for longer with lower fan speeds...and reduced noise!
