The CF WEAPON BRAIN with MONSTRO 8K VV Sensor from RED DIGITAL CINEMA combines the full-frame MONSTRO 8K 35.4MP CMOS sensor with a lightweight, carbon fiber DSMC2 body. The MONSTRO 8K VV offers a wide dynamic range of 17 stops, and improved image quality with greater shadow detail from the DRAGON sensor. Use full-frame lenses to capture cinematic images at rates up to 60 fps in 8192 x 4320 8K, 75 fps in the 2.4:1 aspect ratio, 120 fps in 4K, and up to 240 fps in 2K.

Record full-frame video in REDCODE RAW (R3D) and ProRes or DNxHR/HD simultaneously, or capture minutely detailed 35.4MP still images. With up to 4x greater resolution than 4K capture and over 17x more than HD, the WEAPON MONSTRO 8K VV provides the detail that enables cropping, re-centering, and additional tweaking during post while maintaining vivid, crisp imagery. Data rates of up to 300 MB/s can be reached when using 480 or 960GB MINI-MAGs, or up to 225 MB/s with 120 or 240GB MINI-MAGs.

As a member of the DSMC2® camera lineup, the CF WEAPON MONSTRO 8K benefits from the advanced modularity of the RED ecosystem. Featuring cable-free peripherals, integrated mounting plate, wireless control, and compatibility with a growing number of DSMC2 modules and accessories.

Interchangeable I/O expanders enable you to configure your rig to fit every production type. Whether using your camera in a gimbal, run-and-gun, or studio environment - EPIC-W has the ideal solution for your needs. EPIC-W’s inherent usability frees you from cables by incorporating peripherals with integrated circuitry, including top handle and LCD display options that connect directly to the DSMC2™ BRAIN. Onboard wireless connectivity allows for remote camera control using iOS or Android mobile devices.

Constructed using RED’s innovative modular design, WEAPON integrates seamlessly with third party solutions. Interchangeable lens mounts and OLPF’s allow you to customize your rig and leverage your existing glass while LEMO adaptors and expanders provide convenient third party integrations. Your workflow has never been more customizable to your preferences.
