RED WEAPON 8K
The RED Weapon 8K is a new sensor that will be introduced in October 2016 in the RED Weapon and RED Epic W cameras. The WEAPON 8K is capable of recording REDCODE® RAW and proxy 4K Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD formats—simultaneously. More recording options and the raw power of REDCODE provide the freedom to choose the workflow that's right for you. Take advantage of RED's powerful non-linear editing application, REDCINE-X PRO, to cut dailies, make color corrections, and augment your workflow.
According to this spec sheet, most features should be comparable to those of the original RED Weapon camera, like slow motion in 2K crop mode at up to 240fps and Apple ProRes Proxy recording. The most important thing to know: this is the first 8K sensor with a super35 sensor size, meaning that the pixels are now twice as dense as before, with 3.65 microns per pixel. According to early user reports, the lowlight performance is good and the camera is usable at ISO 3200 and possibly beyond, though this certainly has to be tested. It is promising to get this kind of quality and resolution, accessible to many professionals in the near future.
A word about storage requirements in 8K: apparently, each recorded minute will produce 10 to 15 gigabytes of data (i.e.: 4x size of 4K at 5:1 RAW recording), so you will roughly need 1 terabyte for each hour of footage.
