Red's latest 'Weapon' is an 8K full-frame camera

Pink launched the primary mainstream 4K digital camera when 1080p appeared like overkill, and now that this entire 4K factor may work out, it is acquired an 8K RAW mannequin. The Weapon ‘Vista Imaginative and prescient’ contains a thoughts-boggling eight,192 x four,320, 35-megapixel sensor that may do as much as seventy five fps, widescreen 8K. The chip can also be forty.ninety six x 21.6mm or Vista Imaginative and prescient-sized, significantly bigger than the complete-body sensor on a digital camera just like the Nikon D810. Video might be recorded in RAW and scaled-down ProRes codecs concurrently, simply as with the corporate’s 6K Weapon fashions.

So, how a lot does it value to be on par with Peter Jackson and James Cameron? A helluva lot. If we’re studying the (fairly complicated) pricing appropriately, you will have to order the corporate’s 6K Weapon Woven CF “mind,” or naked digital camera for a cool $forty nine,500, then add one other $10,000 for the 8K sensor improve. That makes $fifty nine,500 by our counting, plus no matter your equipment, storage and lenses value. The improve worth is simply good till the top of NAB on April sixteenth, after which era it’s going to be $20,000. When you already personal a Pink Scarlet or Epic digital camera, you will get credit in numerous quantities in the direction of the Weapon fashions.

Different specs are nonetheless unknown, as is the precise delivery date. Purple truly launched its 6K Weapon digital camera just some months in the past, and it is nonetheless not delivery. We’re unsure who precisely wants 8K, since there aren’t numerous TVs on the market in that format — however it may look nice blown as much as IMAX measurement. Pink stated the sensor would arrive by the top of the yr.
