This Video Tests the RED Weapon’s Improvements Over RED Dragon

The below video from the ACS Technical Committee and FXPHD looks at RED’s Carbon Fiber Weapon and its improvements over RED’s Epic Dragon. The ARRI Alexa is also used as a benchmark for its unparalleled dynamic range.

“We found that the Dragon sensor in the Weapon is a good half stop quieter in the shadows compared to the Epic Dragon. There is also a small improvement in the highlights as well. This puts the Weapon in the top performance bracket for dynamic range, only about a stop short of the Alexa’s world leading dynamic range – which remains an impressive achievement,” writes ACS’s Tom Gleeson.
