By technical editor Matt Allard:
Jarred Land from RED has posted up a very brief video showcasing the new RED Weapon design. While it doesn’t give away much it is the first real sneak peak of the over all design of the new camera.
The exact specifications and upgrade path to Weapon are still yet to be announced, but over on the RED User forum there is speculation of a VistaVision sized sensor upgrade possibly coming down the track. VistaVision is a higher resolution, widescreen variant of the 35mm motion picture film format which was created by engineers at Paramount Pictures in 1954. Could RED be unveiling a 65mm Weapon at NAB to compete with the Arri 65?
