Tutorials & Guides
RED has released no fewer than three 8K cameras since 2015. First was the full format WEAPON DRAGON VV (short for VistaVision), notably used by Henry Braham, BSC on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Next came the EPIC-W and WEAPON HELIUM, both using RED's 8K S35 HELIUM sensor, which packed 8K of pixels into an area similar in size to the standard 3-perf Super35 format and provided a new level of noise performance, especially when scaled down to deliverable resolutions like UHD 3840x2160 or good old HD (1920x1080). Finally, last fall, RED released a replacement for that first 8K camera, incorporating the new sensor technology from their HELIUM chip, and dubbed it MONSTRO. But, aside from resolution, what are the advantages of these 8K sensors? One answer might surprise you: color.

Tutorials & Guides
RED's DSMC2 cameras are able to record .R3D RAW files and ProRes files simultaneously. Both recordings are stored in the same folder, sharing the same metadata. The cameras also allow you to import 3D LUTs with the option of "baking" the LUT into the ProRes files. So, you could say the camera is generating "lite" dailies.
