RED Digital Cinema Accepting WEAPON Orders

News Image
RED Digital Cinema has announced that its WEAPON camera with MONSTRO 8K VV sensor is now available for purchase.

The company's newest camera and sensor combination, WEAPON 8K VV, offers full frame lens coverage, captures 8K full format motion at up to 60 fps, produces ultra-detailed 35.4 megapixel stills, and delivers fast data speeds – up to 300 MB/s. Similar to all of RED's DSMC2 cameras, WEAPON shoots simultaneous REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR recording and adheres to the company's dedication to OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE – a core operating principle that enables current RED owners to upgrade their technology as innovations are unveiled and move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear.

The WEAPON 8K VV is priced starting at $79,500 (for the camera BRAIN) with upgrades available for carbon fiber WEAPON customers.

RED is also offering RED ARMOR-W, an upgraded coverage programme for RED WEAPON cameras that includes increased warranty protection, and a sensor swap service.
