We knew something called “Weapon” would be debuted from RED at this year’s NAB convention, but we didn’t know exactly what it would be. Now that the sun is setting on NAB Day 1, we have a lot more details about WEAPON.
RED WEAPON is a full-frame 8192 x 4320 (8K) sensor. If you have a RED that you want to upgrade, it’s a great idea to go ahead and sign up now, as there is almost a $10,000 difference in price before and after the convention.
How much does the RED WEAPON cost? Well, you would need to buy the 6K WEAPON Brain for $49,500, then pay an additional $10,000 for the 8K upgrade (when available) making it a total of $59,500. Of course that’s just for a bare camera, you’ll also need tens of thousands of dollars in support and lenses to actually shoot.
