Upgrade your current EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON camera to WEAPON and harness the full potential of the award-winning RED DRAGON sensor.

Capture motion and stills in 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 frames per second (fps), or 6K Full Frame at 75 fps, with the cutting-edge RED DRAGON sensor ptimized for WEAPON. Manufactured with ultra-strong machined carbon fiber the WEAPON Forged CF delivers a new level of intuitive control and ergonomic design. Our engineers packed the best aspects from EPIC and SCARLET along with numerous performance enhancements such as on-board Apple ProRes recording and 3D LUTs into a smaller BRAIN, completely redesigned for modular performance. And coming in mid-2016, RED DSMC cameras will provide support for Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHDåÊrecording formats. Support for Avid will be made available through a free camera firmware update. Carbon fiber WEAPON BRAINs offer additional upgrade paths as sensor technology improves.

Just one of the major improvements with WEAPON is the integration of the new DSMC2åÊintelligent OLPF system, making it easier than ever to optimize your footage for your shooting environment by quickly swapping out your optical low pass filter. WEAPON Forged CF cameras and packages ship with the DSMC2åÊStandard OLPF installed in the BRAIN, and also include the Skin Tone-Highlight and Low Light Optimized OLPFs.

STANDARD: This OLPF offers the perfect balance of light gathering and protective qualities for most shooting environments. It is the ideal OLPF for demanding shooting schedules, and balanced for both light and dark environments ensuring you're always ready to capture the perfect shot.

SKIN TONE-HIGHLIGHT: This OLPF captures and preserves color quality in highlights, bright colors, and well-lit environments. It is the ideal OLPF for skin tones and best with lower ISO values.

LOW LIGHT OPTIMIZED: This OLPF provides excellent color and tonal reproduction in dim to dark environments. Use this OLPF to capture and preserve color quality in mid-tones, darks, and shadows.

WEAPON is also offered in two branding varations standard and stealth enabling you to choose from two different coin logos to be emblazoned on the front of your WEAPON BRAIN. Boldly display the red and silver WEAPON coin logo on the front of your camera or go with a subtle yet bold, all black tone-on-toneåÊWEAPON coin logo.
