RED has released the first footage from its upcoming Weapon Helium 8K camera.
The nearly 4-minute boxing short, called “The Underdog,” was shot by 19-year-old filmmaker Jonny Mass who had a mere 24 hours with the camera.
Writes RedShark News’s David Shapton, “On the evidence of this film, the pictures are great. Insofar as you can tell from a YouTube video, any fears that cramming 35 megapixels into an S35 sensor might result in a noisy picture with limited dynamic range appear to be groundless. The opposite would appear to be the case, with very good detail under what appears to be quite difficult lighting conditions.”
