Leveraging the award-winning RED DRAGON® sensor, WEAPON® is engineered from the ground up to deliver cutting-edge performance in the most intuitive camera experience possible. WEAPON 6K boasts an arsenal of improvements and features that include Carbon Fiber owners having the opportunity to upgrade to an 8K sensor, an intelligent OLPF system, blazing fast data transfer rates up to 300 MB/s, in-camera 1D and 3D-LUT outputs, and the freedom to simultaneously record in REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD file formats.
Interchangeable I/O expanders enable you to configure your rig to fit every production type. Whether using your camera in a gimbal, run-and-gun, or studio environment—WEAPON has the ideal solution for your needs. WEAPON’s inherent usability frees you from cables by incorporating peripherals with integrated circuitry, including top handle and LCD display options that connect directly to the DSMC2™ BRAIN. Onboard wireless connectivity allows for remote camera control using iOS or Android mobile devices.
The powerful simplicity of WEAPON allows for easily customizable rigs complete with streamlined peripheral integration. Built–in stereo microphones offer convenient scratch audio capture, while integrated Start/Stop button functionality on accessories—like the DSMC2 Top Handle, DSMC2 Outrigger Handle, and DSMC2 Side Handle—put recording at your fingertips. New intelligent OLPFs with integrated circuitry communicate the necessary colorimetry information to the BRAIN. A cam-action lock makes swapping your OLPFs to customize footage more convenient than ever.
WEAPON supercharges the already blazing fast read/write speeds of the RED MINI-MAG®. The new integrated media bay offers higher bandwidth and unleashes the full potential of RED MINI-MAGs. With a number of capacities and options, RED MINI-MAGs offer flexible solutions for any shoot. WEAPON also supports both the Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHR/HD codecs, giving you the freedom to simultaneously record REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD file formats—at the same time. Whatever your workflow demands, RED has you covered.
WEAPON 8K boasts a 35.4 megapixel sensor, giving shooters the freedom to capture 8K 2.4:1 at up to 75 frames per second (fps), and 8K Full Frame at 60 fps. WEAPON 6K uses a 19 megapixel sensor capturing 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 fps and 6K Full Frame at 75 fps. WEAPON’s enhanced design features a number of enhancements: including automatic black shade calibrations, improved low light sensor performance, and an intelligent OLPF system. WEAPON cameras are also equipped to support 1D and 3D LUTs—giving colorists and post production teams more control than ever before.
RED is committed to placing adaptable, high-end creative tools in the hands of professionals everywhere. We offer a variety of upgrade paths to cutting-edge products, accessory compatibility within the DSMC2 camera family, and imagery that is ready for the next generation of high-resolution displays. RED recognizes that shooters should have the option to move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear—including giving Carbon Fiber WEAPON 6K owners the opportunity to upgrade to an 8K sensor when available—causing us to be relentless in our mission to make OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE®.
Constructed using RED’s innovative modular design, WEAPON integrates seamlessly with third party solutions. Interchangeable lens mounts allow you to customize your rig and leverage your existing glass while LEMO adaptors and expanders provide convenient third party integrations. Customize your image capture with a variety of file format recording options. Your workflow has never been more customizable to your preferences.
