  • Overview

    The RED WEAPON 8K Stealth Standard Camera - Body Only is the newest RED camera to come out of the company carrying the HELIUM sensor that delivers resolution all the way up to 8K. This camera can deliver both stills and motion videos at 8K 2:4:1 at up to 75 frames per second (fps), or 8K at 60 fps. To add onto value, this camera is eligible to upgrade to the newer upcoming RED DRAGON 8K when it is made available to the public.

    RESOLUTION MATTERS. THE DETAIL IS IN THE PIXELS.

    WEAPON® with HELIUM™ 8K S35 delivers stunning resolution and image quality—creating smooth and organic images that bring your footage to life. RED has taken the next step in exceeding the flexibility and beauty offered by film. At 35 Megapixels, 8K offers 17x more resolution than HD—and over 4x more than 4K.

    SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY.  QUALITY THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

    The WEAPON 8K S35 combines advanced color science with incredible dynamic range. The result is cinema image quality that breathes life into your footage. Showcase the depths of shadows as well as highlight roll-off to capture otherwise imperceptible details.

    EXPANDED FRAME OF MIND. EVEN MORE CREATIVE FLEXIBILITY.

    For cinematographers, 8K resolution offers more than just incredible detail. It delivers countless possibilities for reframing, VFX (visual effects), motion stabilization, supersampling footage, and more. More resolution boils down to the ability to do more with your footage in production—all without having to reshoot.

    A BETTER WORKFLOW. MORE CREATIVE POWER FROM SHOOT TO FINISH.

    The WEAPON 8K is capable of recording REDCODE® RAW and proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD formats—simultaneously. More recording options and the raw power of REDCODE provide the freedom to choose the workflow that's right for you. Take advantage of RED's powerful non-linear editing application, REDCINE-X PRO, to cut dailies, make color corrections, and augment your workflow.

    INTELLIGENT DESIGN. ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE. DESIGNED FOR YOU.

    The DSMC2™ form factor is our smallest and lightest BRAIN ever. With features like cable-free peripherals, integrated side SSD, wireless control, and more—WEAPON 8K is the most powerful and intuitive camera to date. It is also compatible with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories—from RED and other third party manufacturers. Tack on interchangeable OLPFs and lens mounts and WEAPON gives you the ultimate control over your footage.
