WEAPON® now comes with the option of a MONSTRO™ 8K VV sensor. Capable of shooting motion and stills in 8K 2.4:1 at up to 75 frames per second (fps), or 8K Full Format at 60 fps—WEAPON 8K VV™ delivers cinematic image quality with a sensor size of 40.96 mm x 21.60 mm.
At full 8K resolution, the MONSTRO sensor captures 35.4 Megapixel motion and stills with low noise and now ships with IPP2, RED’s improved image processing pipeline. WEAPON 8K VV provides the most advanced VFX solution with next-level creative flexibility. Blazing-fast 300 MB/s data rates allow you to take advantage of the best possible REDCODE® settings — and record proxy 4K Apple ProRes or 4K Avid DNxHR formats, simultaneously.
As a member of the DSMC2® camera lineup, WEAPON 8K VV benefits from the advanced modularity of the RED ecosystem. Featuring cable-free peripherals, an 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 VV compatible PL and Canon lenses.
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. To construct a working configuration for any BRAIN, RED recommends an expander, battery, lens mount, display, and media.
