Introducing Nauticam Weapon LT

The RED Weapon Camera BRAIN

The RED cinema camera system revolves around the BRAIN which houses the sensor and to which all additional components are attached.  This modular approach allows the user to use only the parts they need and create a streamlined purpose-fit rig.  

The RED Weapon works off the DSMC2 form factor, the smallest and lightest RED BRAIN to date.  Weapon BRAINS can be purchased with one of three sensors, each with unique characteristics and resolutions.

Monstro 8K VV

Featuring the Vista Vision full-frame 8K sensor, this is the latest RED Weapon.  The 35.4MP CMOS sensor offers full frame lens coverage and over 17 stops of dynamic range.

Helium 8K S35

The Helium 8K 35.4MP CMOS sensor offers Super 35 format and received the highest rating of any sensor on DxOMark.  

Dragon 6K S35

The venerable Dragon delivers 75fps 6K video from a 19.4MP CMOS sensor.

Additional Weapon Specs

All Weapon BRAINS are capable of data write speeds of 300 MB/s and are able to write simultaneously in REDCODE RAW as well as Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD allowing for a faster and more streamlined post-processing workflow.

8K offers 17x more resolution than HD and 4x more than 4K allowing for unparalleled sharpness.

RED DSMC2 BRAINS can be configured to accept Canon EF, Nikon, Leica-M or PL lenses by swapping lens mounts.  Changing lens mounts is as simple as removing four screws.  This also gives access to the OLPF which can also be swapped.

The Nauticam Weapon LT Underwater Housing

The Nauticam Weapon LT housing is the smallest, lightest, and easiest to operate underwater housing for RED Cameras available.  On location, the usability of this system is unmatched.  Set up and tear down in minutes, easily swap batteries and recording media while the camera is mounted in the housing, and lens changes in seconds.  The small size and light weight dramatically decrease resistance in water, especially when free diving.

This version of the housing uses the N120 port system which allows for the use of even the largest diameter DSLR lenses such as the Canon Ultra-Wide Zoom EF 11-24mm f/4 USM.  When paired with the Monstro VV sensor the Weapon will capture the full 126º05' rectilinear field of view. 

External Monitor Support

The Weapon LT housing supports the use of optional bulkheads to support a variety of external monitors with either SDI or LEMO connectivity.  With LEMO support the use of the REDTOUCH monitor is possible removing the need for monitor battery changes as was necessary with SDI monitors like the SmallHD.

Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System

The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with Weapon LT as standard equipment.  Combined with an accessory vacuum valve (PN 25625), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing.  A simple color coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, an audible and visual indication will occur.

The Nauticam system is temperature compensated, eliminating false alarms caused by a change in outside temperature, or from a camera heating up on an action packed dive.
