Shot on WEAPON DRAGON: Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”
The Weapon shoots up to 100 frames at 6k - a particularly valuable feature in effects-heavy videos like this one. Probst also used the Phantom Flex 4K for extremely high-speed shots in this video.
With the capacity to create such large hi-res R3D files, the Weapon's novel ability to simultaneously record Apple ProRes files is a particularly valuable.
The Magnesium brain can record up to 2k Prores, with the Carbon Fiber model recording up to 4k and up to 120 frames in various compression formats.Some other exciting new features include a faster, easier way to swap OLPFs, auto blackshade calibration, all-around improved low-light performance, and a built-in microphone and speakers for easy scratch track recording and playback. With the Weapon brain weighing in at about 3.3 pounds as opposed to the 5 pound Epic and Scarlet bodies, the difference is significant. The smaller size requires for smaller mounting accessories as well. An all-around, more compact package, including many new wireless functions, makes shooting with a Ronin, MoVi or drone much more comfortable and controllable. I wouldn't hate it on a long day of handheld operating either. We'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave any questions or comments below.
