RED Weapon MONSTRO (VistaVision) 8K

January 11th, 2019 • by CJ • in Blog, Camera, New Equipment

The carbon fiber Weapon camera body remains the same but the new MONSTRO sensor is one of RED’s most complex inventions yet. The MONSTRO provides improved image quality, with greater dynamic range and increased shadow detail along with higher ISOs with lower noise than the last model.  

The 35.4 Megapixel CMOS Sensor comes with 17+ stops of dynamic range for sharp and insanely colorful results. The camera’s sensor, at 40.96mm x 21.60mm, also allows for excellent anamorphic coverage. 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. The Weapon MONSTRO can record 8K, 40.96 x 21.6 mm full format (46.31 mm diagonal) up to 60 fps. It can simultaneously record REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR.
