WEAPON Magnesium 6K BRAIN

WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING ORDERS FOR THIS ITEM

Capture motion and stills in 6K 2.4:1 at up to 100 frames per second (fps), or 6K Full Frame at 75 fps, with the cutting-edge RED DRAGON® sensor—optimized for WEAPON®. Manufactured with lightweight and element-resistant magnesium—the WEAPON Magnesium delivers a new level of intuitive control and ergonomic design. Our engineers packed the best aspects from EPIC and SCARLET®—along with numerous performance enhancements such as on-board Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHR/HD recording, as well as limited 3D LUT support—into a smaller BRAIN, completely redesigned for modular performance.

Just one of the major improvements with WEAPON is the integration of the new DSMC2 intelligent OLPF system, making it easier than ever to optimize your footage for your shooting environment—by quickly swapping out your optical low pass filter. Choose from our growing line of DSMC2 OLPFs including the DSMC2 Standard OLPF, DSMC2 Low Light Optimized OLPF, DSMC2 Skin Tone-Highlight OLPF, or all three with the 3-Pack.

STANDARD: This OLPF offers the perfect balance of light gathering and protective qualities for most shooting environments. It is the ideal OLPF for demanding shooting schedules, and balanced for both light and dark environments—ensuring you’re always ready to capture the perfect shot.


SKIN TONE-HIGHLIGHT: This OLPF captures and preserves color quality in highlights, bright colors, and well-lit environments. It is the ideal OLPF for skin tones and best with lower ISO values.


LOW LIGHT OPTIMIZED: This OLPF provides excellent color and tonal reproduction in dim to dark environments. Use this OLPF to capture and preserve color quality in mid-tones, darks, and shadows.

WEAPON is also offered in two branding varations—standard and stealth—enabling you to choose from two different coin logos to be emblazoned on the front of your WEAPON BRAIN. Boldly display the red and silver WEAPON coin logo on the front of your camera—or go with a subtle yet bold, all black tone-on-tone WEAPON coin logo.

This product includes the WEAPON Magnesium 6K BRAIN and other primary components. Additional accessories are required to power the camera and/or record to media. See the Included Tab for more information.

When you purchase any new RED DRAGON camera, you may buy a RED ROCKET-X for a bundle price of $4,495. Simply add a RED ROCKET-X to your cart and the discount will be automatically applied.

NOTE: An expander module or the DSMC2 REDVOLT® XL Module is required to power the BRAIN. Only one (1) expander module can be used at a time.
