RED Digital Cinema has announced that its cinematic full frame WEAPON cameras are now available for purchase with the MONSTRO 8K VV sensor. MONSTRO is a new step in large-format sensor technology, with improvements in image quality including dynamic range and shadow detail.
REDs 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 data speeds of up to 300 MB/s. Like all of REDs DSMC2 cameras, WEAPON shoots simultaneous REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR recording and adheres to the companys dedication to OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE a core operating principle that allows 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.
