RED Weapon Dragon Camera
Leveraging the award-winning 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, WEAPON® is RED's smallest and most lightweight camera BRAIN® ever. Taking the best aspects of EPIC and SCARLET—WEAPON is engineered from the ground up to deliver cutting edge performance in the most intuitive camera experience possible. WEAPON boasts an arsenal of improvements and features that include workflow enhancements, cable-free and intuitive peripherals, integrated mounting points, and more. Arm yourself—WEAPON is here.
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 has the ideal solution for your needs. WEAPON’s inherent usability frees you from cables by incorporating peripherals with integrated circuitry, including top handle and LCD display options that connect directly to the DSMC BRAIN. Onboard wireless connectivity allows for remote camera control using iOS or Android mobile devices.
The powerful simplicity of WEAPON allows for easily customizable rigs complete with streamlined peripheral integration. Built–in stereo microphones and speaker allow for even easier audio capture and playback, while the Record Start/Stop button on the WEAPON Top Handle makes controlling your ability to record truly at your fingertips. New intelligent OLPFs with integrated circuitry communicate the necessary colorimetry information to the BRAIN. A cam-action lock makes swapping your OLPFs to customize footage more convenient than ever.
WEAPON 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. With a number of capacities and options, RED MINI-MAGs offer flexible solutions for any shoot. WEAPON also supports the Apple ProRes codec, giving you the freedom to record in both the R3D and Apple ProRes file formats—at the same time. Whatever your workflow demands, RED has you covered.
he 19 megapixel RED DRAGON sensor can capture 6K motion and stills at up to 100 frames per second. And it just got even better. The redesigned BRAIN infrastructure enabled our engineers to make a number of enhancements like automatic black shade calibrations, improved low light sensor performance, and implement a new intelligent OLPF system. WEAPON BRAINs are also equipped to support 1D and 3D LUTs—giving colorists and post-production teams more control than ever before. LUT options and other features vary between magnesium and carbon fiber models.

WEAPON is backwards compatible with your existing power options (such as batteries, chargers and power adaptors), RED MINI-MAGs, DSMC lens mounts, cables, and most mounting and support components.
