After announcing the HELIUM 8K sensor back in July, RED has been quick to add the sensor to a multitude of custom-built cameras for the likes of directors like Michael Bay. That sensor is now rolling out into the new RED EPIC-W and WEAPON 8K.

Both new cameras are part of the DSMC2 form factor, and RED is sweetening the deal for current RED owners (and those on waiting lists) with the ability to upgrade to a new 8K sensor package. According to RED’s website, orders placed today will ship in 7-10 business days.

RED WEAPON 8K S35

RED Announces Two New 8K Super35 Cameras: RED WEAPON 8K

The other new upgraded package is the RED WEAPON 8K. This is the third configuration to the 8K WEAPON line — WEAPON 8K S35, WEAPON 8K W, and WEAPON 8K ANA.

The WEAPON 8K S35 also carries the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor, where as the 8K W and 8K ANA use the DRAGON sensor. The WEAPON 8K is actually the same cost as the WEAPON 6K, which also carries the company’s DRAGON sensor — $49,500 for the BRAIN.

From the very beginning, we’ve strived to not only develop the best imaging technology on the planet, but also make it available to as many shooters as possible. The WEAPON remains our premier camera — and now comes with the option to either go with the 8K HELIUM sensor or 6K DRAGON sensor. — Jarred Land
