Introducing the DSMC2 Line Plus RED Weapon 8K Unboxing

The WEAPON 8K is part of RED’s DSMC2 line, which features simultaneous REDCODE RAW® and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD recording, integrated smart connectors for cable-free peripheral attachment, and faster read/write speeds for lower compression – all in a smaller and lightweight form factor compared to prior models.

RED has released some incredible new high dynamic range cameras this year. The RED RAVEN 4.5K, the Scarlet-W 5K, EPIC-W 8K, WEAPON 6K, and WEAPON 8K are all part of the DSMC2 family, which continues RED’s signature modular system with a collection of expanders, displays, and controllers that allow each user to create their perfect configuration.


Our RED rentals come with a RED Station, top handle, mounting plate, and a choice of mounts (with the exception of the RAVEN, which only comes in EF mount). The new MINI-MAG SSDs are available to rent in 120GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities.

The standard optical low-pass filter in these cameras is ideal for most shooting environments and the REDCODE RAW (R3D) format can be used with industry standard post-production suites. You can shoot simultaneous R3D and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD for ultimate creative freedom. And, as with prior RED models, you can pull amazing stills from your footage.

You can rent RED’s latest cinema-grade professional cameras here.
