Designed for high-end cinema and video production, the RED WEAPON DSMC2 cinema camera features the DRAGON 6K Super-35 CMOS sensor and REDCODE RAW imaging pipeline. Shooting in 6K gives the production an edge in the post process, even in 4K deliverables, as shots can be re-framed in your NLE while keeping the material at 4K resolutions, or greater. VFX artists can also benefit from the extra resolution information.
REDCODE RAW is the format of choice for the WEAPON. RED’s versatile raw codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media.
