Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 will be the first film to shoot using the RED Weapon 8K camera. As the release states, the 8K Weapon “captures 8K at 75 frames per second, 6K at 100 fps, or 4K at 150 fps with REDCODE® RAW,” and features “interchangeable lens mounts, an intelligent OLPF system, and in-camera 3D-LUT outputs.”  This translates into an enhanced resolution and higher frame-rates, making the movie appear clearer.

Just a pity you can’t view it in 8K when it comes out on Blu Ray.

As you can see from above the major difference between 4K and 8K and we all think 4K is good. Q. How do they film the blue chap against a blue key, as seen in the clip below and get away with it…masking I presume ?


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
