Leveraging the award-winning RED DRAGON® sensor, WEAPON® 6K is engineered from the ground up to deliver cutting-edge performance in the most intuitive camera experience possible. WEAPON 6K boasts an arsenal of features that include blazing fast data transfer rates up to 300 MB/s, and the freedom to simultaneously record in REDCODE® RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD file formats. WEAPON 6K owners also have the opportunity to upgrade to an 8K sensor.
Interchangeable I/O expanders enable you to configure your rig to fit every production type. Whether using your camera in a gimbal, run-and-gun, or studio environment—WEAPON 6K has an ideal solution for your needs.
The powerful simplicity of WEAPON 6K allows for easily customizable rigs complete with streamlined peripheral integration. Built–in stereo microphones offer convenient scratch audio capture, while integrated Start/Stop button functionality on accessories and new intelligent OLPFs with integrated circuitry communicate the necessary colorimetry information to the BRAIN.
WEAPON 6K supercharges the already blazing fast read/write speeds of the RED MINI-MAG®. The new integrated media bay offers higher bandwidth and unleashes the full potential of RED MINI-MAGs. Whatever your workflow demands, RED has you covered.
WEAPON 6K uses a 19 megapixel sensor capturing 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 fps and 6K Full Format at 75 fps. WEAPON’s enhanced design features a number of enhancements: including automatic black shade calibrations, improved low light sensor performance, and an intelligent OLPF system. WEAPON cameras are also equipped to support 1D and 3D LUTs—giving colorists and post production teams more control than ever before.
RED is committed to placing adaptable, high-end creative tools in the hands of professionals everywhere. We offer a variety of upgrade paths to cutting-edge products, accessory compatibility within the DSMC2 camera family, and imagery that is ready for the next generation of high-resolution displays - causing us to be relentless in our mission to make OBSOLESCENCE OBSOLETE®.
Constructed using RED's innovative modular design, WEAPON 6K integrates seamlessly with third party solutions. Interchangeable lens mounts allow you to customize your rig and leverage your existing glass while LEMO adaptors and expanders provide convenient third party integrations. Your workflow has never been more customizable to your preferences.
