    The interchangeable OLPFs for Dragon begin shipping at the end of the month.

    Each OLPF module is $195. We will begin with shipping the "Low Light Optimized" and the "Skin Tone-Highlight"

    "Low Light Optimized" is the original Dragon OLPF tuned for shooting higher ASA shooting, and similar to the OLPF used in the Epic MX.

    "Skin Tone - Highlight" is the current OLPF shipping with Dragon that offers a stop of extra highlight protection, the most incredibly accurate skin-tones and color science as well as additional flare control, with the expense of a stop of light sensitivity.

    We are working on an array of OLPF Modules including:

    Underwater : Tuned for underwater shooting
    IR Monochrome : Tuned for shooting B&W IR images.
    IR Color: Tuned for shooting Color IR images
    Dragon Standard : In the middle of the "Low Light Optimized" and the " Skin Tone - Highlight " .
    Monochrome: Standard Monochrome OLPF

    For customers that have taken delivery of a camera with the previous OLPF system we will convert your cameras to the new system for free at any RED Certified Service Centers.
    If you are not able to send to a service center, contact dragonupgrade@red.com to get a modification kit sent to you for $100. Need to send back your old OLPF to get a credit of $100 to net free modification. Will need to do one-off firmware update to have camera moved from “fixed OLPF” status to “swappable”.

    Awesome! Does this mean cameras that have yet to be upgraded to Dragon will now receive the new upgradable system?

    Any idea as to the ETA of that standard "middle ground" OLPF?

    Love this.

    Would be cool if you could add to the arsenal and include OLPF's with lens characteristics of some older glass. And Pro Mists, etc.

    Nice! Can't wait!!! That Dragon Standard sounds like a winner for 85% of the user base.

    When Jarred says end of month, it means four things all at same time. The kits to buy, existing DRAGON owners can send in to be switched to swappable, upgrades moving forward will have the swappable system, and new cameras will have new swappable system. All kick off on same day, hard cutover.

    EDIT: Someone asked if they send in a camera for repair, will it automatically be upgraded to swappable OLPF system? Answer is "no". We will only upgrade to that upon customer request.
