Weapon 6k Camera 

The Weapon camera developed by RED provides up to 6K resolution videos. It is one of the last products developed by the brand and as such it does include the DMSC2 technology, which allows for accessories connection without using wires. Weapon camera rental in Camaleon Rental.



The RED WEAPON 6K camera includes the DRAGON 19,4 Mpx CMOS sensor, with 6144 x 3160 effective pixels along a rectangular surface of 30,7mm x 15,8mm (34,5mm diagonal). This sensor has been specifically developed by RED to obtain a dynamic range of about 16,5 stops and high framerates: it reaches 300fps when set to 2K (2,4:1) and 100 fps when shooting 6K (2,4:1). It offers an advanced transmission technology that allows for 300mb/s transfers when using RED MINI-MAG cards (of between 480GB and 1TB). Weapon camera rental in Camaleon Rental.


Recording Formats

The RED WEAPON 6K is one of the first cameras of the new RED batch which features the possibility of dual video recording in two different formats, one of them being the usual RED raw format (.R3D) and the other either Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR.

Apple ProRes

Apple ProRes HD or 4k (.mov) clips can be recorded when setting the Continuous Record or Motion Still+ options in the menu. However, if 4k recording is required, it will only be possible selecting certain codecs (ProRes 422, 422HQ or 422LT), reaching framerates of 60fps (120fps @2K) and 29,97fps when dual recording.

It is important to note that it will not be possible to record 4K/5K FF when dual recording and that the resulting file will depend on the previously selected resolution. Hence, if we have a 4k file but we have a selected resolution smaller than 4K, the camera will deliver a 2K prores file without cropping or reframing.


The requirements for Avid DNxHD or DNxHR (.mxf) recording are pretty similar to those needed for Apple ProRes recording (Continuous Record or Motion + Still settings). 

As with Apple files, it can only be recorded in DNxHD / HR in the recording modes of Continuous Record or Motion + Still. When it is an HDRX recording, the A-track or the X-track is recorded according to the HDRX menu settings.

If you select a frame rate per second that the file does not support, it will be reduced by half.
When recording in Avid DNxHD / HR you can select from the wide range of available resolutions of the Epic Weapon (2K 2.4: 1-6k) but the resulting file will be 2k or 4k. If the camera is set to get a 4k DNxHD / HR file while the selected resolution is less than 4k, then a 2k file will be generated.


The RED RAW format is the default recording setting in the Epic Weapon, and it has a color depth of 16bits per pixel. This file is saved without the image parameters (such as ISO, color temperature,... etc), which in turn are saved as metadata that can be used as a reference in postproduction. Besides, the files are compressed using the REDCODE codec, using a variable compression ratio between 2:1 and 22:1.

The .R3D files deliver the highest quality and performance of the RED Epic Weapon Woven 6K, reaching up to 6K resolution and up to 300fps. Weapon camera rental in Camaleon Rental.



HDR (high dynamic range) is a technique used to increase the dynamic range of an image. RED offers this characteristic by recording two simultaneous clips, one of them being regularly exposed (the A-track) and the other one being subexposed (X-track), the latter being the one that keeps information from the highlights. This process is made by exposing the regular image with a regular shutter speed (1/50 for instance) and exposing the simultaneous frame at a higher shutterspeed (1/200, for example), thus obtaining a sub exposed image for the X-track. This process was patented by RED and named HDRX, and is said to increase the dynamic range by 2-6 steps (depending on the selected settings). Besides, RED also highlights the ability of removing the motion gap, a time gap that was produced by previous HDR systems. This issue led to what is called  motion track, a sort of duplicated image. 

When exposing, either the A-track or the X-track can be selected to be monitorized in screen. If the dual recording option is selected, the monitorized track will be the one recorded in the secondary file type (Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR). Weapon camera rental in Camaleon Rental.


DSCM2 and Wireless connectivity

The new generation of RED camera bodies and accesories has been made using the DSMC2  system, which allows for accessories connection without using cables. This system has also improved in ergonomics as the company has listened to the costumers feedback: new disposition of docks and connections, new ventilation systems,...

The Weapon camera features an antenna that provides with WiFi communication. There are two connecting modes:

Ad Hoc: The Weapon camera generates a WiFi connection which can be detected by computers or smartphones for direct connection. The generated network may be encripted via WAP2 security if desired.

Infraestructure mode: The Weapon camera and the remote device (computer, smartphone, tablet,...) stablish a WiFi connection with the same existing external WiFi network.

The Weapon camera can be remotely controlled using the Foolcontrol App, available on iOS and computers. Weapon camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
