ABOUT RED DIGITAL CINEMA

In 2006, RED Digital Cinema began a revolution with the 4K RED ONE® digital camera—altering the future of filmmaking. Two years later, RED broke the mold by debuting a camera that could shoot both cinema and stills with a new DSMC® (Digital Still and Motion Camera) system. This breakthrough allowed the same camera used to shoot features such as “The Hobbit” trilogy and “Gone Girl”—as well as the Emmy-winning “House of Cards”—to also capture covers and editorials for magazines such as “Vogue.” In 2014, RED began providing a broadcast solution that allows shooters to stream live in 4K while recording 6K REDCODE RAW masters. This year, RED debuted the newest member of the RED DRAGON sensor family, the WEAPON® camera. Leveraging the award-winning 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, WEAPON couples cutting edge performance with an arsenal of feature improvements that include cable-free intuitive peripherals, blazing fast data rates, integrated mountings, in-camera 3D LUTs output, simultaneous recording of Apple ProRes and REDCODE RAW, and the option to upgrade to an 8K sensor when available. Boasting amazing color science and dynamic range, the 19 megapixel RED DRAGON sensor continues to reinforce that whether you are a photographer, cinematographer, or broadcaster—RED has you covered.
