RED Digital Cinema has created it’s most intuitive camera to date with the introduction of the smallest and incredibly lightweight RED BRAIN ever in WEAPON. The improvements and updated features that include but not limited to it’s workflow, cable-free and intuitive peripherals, the awesome mounting points are just a few highlights to this cutting edge performing camera!
The simplicity of the WEAPON allows operators to completely customize their rigs and streamlines the peripheral integration 10fold. The brain of the WEAPON is the 19 megapixal RED DRAGON sensor which can capture 6K motion and stills at up to 100 frames per second. What makes this unique is that the redesign enables automatic black shade calibrations, improved low light sensor performance, and implement a new intelligent OLPF system. WEAPON BRAINs are also equipped to support 1D and 3D LUTs—giving colorists and post-production teams more control than ever before and let’s not forget that the simultaneous recording of Apple ProRes and REDCODE RAW is “money in the bank”.
RED’s commitment to supporting your existing equipment and gear is called the OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE® advantage. The WEAPON is backwards compatible with your existing power options (such as batteries, chargers and power adaptors), RED MINI-MAGs, DSMC lens mounts, cables, and most mounting and support components. The New LCD/EVF adaptors enable you to attach existing RED Touch and other monitoring solutions to the WEAPON BRAIN. The WEAPON Upgrade packages include replacements for critical modules and components, while Carbon Fiber WEAPONs support new upgrade paths as the technology advances. Looks like RED has you covered when you hit the “movie making battlefield”.

About RED Digital Cinema: In 2006, RED Digital Cinema began a revolution with the 4K RED ONE® digital camera—altering the future of filmmaking. Two years later, RED broke the mould by debuting a camera that could shoot both cinema and stills with a new DSMC® (Digital Still and Motion Camera) system. This breakthrough allowed the same camera used to shoot features such as ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy and ‘Gone Girl’—as well as the Emmy-winning ‘House of Cards’—to capture covers and editorials for magazines such as ‘Vogue’. In 2014, RED began providing a broadcast solution that allows shooters to stream live in 4K while recording 6K REDCODE RAW masters—creating a solution for today’s studio and broadcast applications that is also future-proofed for tomorrow’s 4K market. This year, RED debuted the newest member of the RED DRAGON® sensor family, the WEAPON® camera. WEAPON is RED’s most compact and lightweight camera BRAIN® ever and includes new features such as workflow enhancements, cable-free and intuitive peripherals, integrated mountings, and simultaneous recording of Apple ProRes and REDCODE RAW. Boasting amazing color science and dynamic range, the 19 megapixel RED DRAGON sensor continues to reinforce that whether you are a photographer, cinematographer, or broadcaster—RED has you covered.
