Joining the Weapon 6K, Scarlet-W 5K and Red Raven 4.5K in Red's latest generation DSMC 2 line of cameras, the Weapon 8K features advanced modularity, image quality and form factor. "We are all hugely excited to be shooting the next Guardians of the Galaxy on the new Weapon 8K," says Nik Korda, executive producer. "This is my third collaboration with Red, having previously shot with the Red Epic on Prometheus and the Epic Dragon on Tarzan. 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." Weapon 8K captures 8K at 75fps (6K/100fps, 4K/150fps with Redcode Raw; and its wide dynamic range produces cinema-quality images rich with natural color. Additionally, Weapon 8K features interchangeable lens mounts, an intelligent OLPF system and in-camera 3D-LUT outputs.
