Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now out, with a new behind the scenes video detailing how director James Gunn used the incredible Red 8K Weapon camera.

The team used Red's new 8K Weapon camera for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and it shows, it's an incredibly vibrant and highly detailed result. They could use the Red 8K Weapon camera for handheld close ups, or weird angles and rigs - versus an IMAX camera that is a mammoth beast in comparison.

I've personally seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in IMAX recently, down here in Melbourne, Australia - and I wondered how the movie looked so utterly gorgeous. I knew IMAX quality was great, as I've seen plenty of flicks in IMAX (including Interstellar in 70mm IMAX which was freakin' mind blowing) - but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the best-looking movies out there - and now we know why: Red's 8K Weapon camera.
