PLEASE NOTE: WEAPON 8K S35 is NOT compatible with 8K VV lens mounts.
PLEASE NOTE: The WEAPON BRAIN itself does not have a DC IN power port. A port expander or power module is required to power the camera.
WEAPON now comes with the option of a HELIUM 8K S35 sensor. Capable of shooting motion and stills in 8K 2.4:1 at up to 75 frames per second (fps), or 8K Full Frame at 60 fps—WEAPON 8K S35 delivers unrivalled performance. WEAPON 8K S35 owners will also be eligible to upgrade to the RED DRAGON 8K VV sensor—when it becomes available.
At full 8K resolution, the HELIUM sensor captures 35.4 Megapixel motion and stills. Coupled with 60–75 fps, WEAPON 8K S35 provides the most advanced VFX solution with next-level creative flexibility. With other HELIUM sensor advancements, WEAPON 8K boasts improved low-light sensitivity and impressive dynamic range. Blazing-fast 300 MB/s data rates allow you to take advantage of the lowest possible REDCODE—and record proxy 4K Apple ProRes or 4K Avid DNxHR formats, simultaneously.
As a member of the DSMC2 camera line up, WEAPON 8K S35 benefits from the advanced modularity of the RED ecosystem. Featuring cable-free peripherals, integrated mounting plate, wireless control, and compatibility with a growing number of DSMC2 modules and accessories. WEAPON also supports interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts—empowering you to make the most of all of your S35 compatible PL, Nikon, Canon, and Leica lenses.
RESOLUTION MATTERS THE DETAIL IS IN THE PIXELS.
WEAPON® with HELIUM™ 8K S35 delivers stunning resolution and image quality—creating smooth and organic images that bring your footage to life. RED has taken the next step in exceeding the flexibility and beauty offered by film. At 35 Megapixels, 8K offers 17x more resolution than HD—and over 4x more than 4K.
SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY, QUALITY THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
The WEAPON 8K S35 combines advanced colour science with incredible dynamic range. The result is cinema image quality that breathes life into your footage. Showcase the depths of shadows as well as highlight roll-off to capture otherwise imperceptible details.
EXPANDED FRAME OF MIND EVEN MORE CREATIVE FLEXIBILITY
For cinematographers, 8K resolution offers more than just incredible detail. It delivers countless possibilities for reframing, VFX (visual effects), motion stabilization, super sampling footage, and more. More resolution boils down to the ability to do more with your footage in production—all without having to reshoot.
A BETTER WORKFLOW MORE CREATIVE POWER FROM SHOOT TO FINISH.
The WEAPON 8K is capable of recording REDCODE® RAW and proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD formats—simultaneously. More recording options and the raw power of REDCODE provide the freedom to choose the workflow that's right for you. Take advantage of RED's powerful non-linear editing application, REDCINE-X PRO, to cut dailies, make colour corrections, and augment your workflow.
INTELLIGENT DESIGN ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE. DESIGNED FOR YOU.
The DSMC2™ form factor is our smallest and lightest BRAIN ever. With features like cable-free peripherals, integrated side SSD, wireless control, and more—WEAPON 8K is the most powerful and intuitive camera to date.
