RED WEAPON 8K To Be Used For Marvel Movie

News Image
RED Digital Cinema has confirmed that Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the first production to be shot on WEAPON, outfitted with the 8K RED DRAGON sensor.

It joins the WEAPON 6K, SCARLET-W 5K, and RED RAVEN 4.5K in RED's latest generation DSMC² line of cameras.

WEAPON 8K captures 8K at 75 frames per second (fps), 6K at 100 fps, or 4K at 150 fps with REDCODE RAW; and its wide dynamic range produces cinema-quality images rich with natural color. WEAPON 8K also features interchangeable lens mounts, an intelligent OLPF system, and in-camera 3D-LUT outputs.

"I cannot even begin to express how proud I am that Marvel and everyone involved in the production has decided to be the first to shoot on our WEAPON 8K," said Jarred Land, President of RED Digital Cinema. "Given the enormous success of the first movie, we know first-hand how critical their team was in selecting a camera for the second installment. We consider this a huge affirmation that RED's investment in cutting edge technology continues to be justified."

"We are all hugely excited to be shooting the next Guardians of the Galaxy on the new WEAPON 8K. This is my third collaboration with RED, having previously shot with the RED EPIC on Prometheus and the EPIC DRAGON on Tarzan," added Nik Korda, Executive Producer. "The large sensor size and super high resolution offered by the new WEAPON 8K, combined with its lightweight and compact size open up a whole range of new creative possibilities."

"RED's 8K WEAPON is the little big camera. Perfectly counterintuitive. And perfect for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2," commented Henry Braham, BSC, Director of Photography.
