And coming in mid-2016, RED DSMC cameras will provide support for Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHD recording formats. Support for Avid will be made available through a free camera firmware update.

Just one of the major improvements with WEAPON is the integration of the new DSMC2åÊintelligent OLPFsystem, making it easier than ever to optimize your footage for your shooting environment by quickly swapping out your optical low pass filter.
