    So I am not even concerned about the difference in Ks. I want to know if anybody has used both and can conclude whether the DSMC2 Dragon produces the organic motion and look the weapon does, or if it looks closer to an MG or Scarlet-W.

    I am looking at purchasing one or the other but I have very little to go off of the new DSMC2 Dragon-X, so any insights will be greatly appreciated.

    The difference as I understand it: DSMC2 is higher bitrate and lower resolution / smaller sensor.

    Think getting a used 6k DSMC2 dragon if you like dragon senor look is a good option.

    The Weapon Dragon is a sweet camera. The carbon version was the base of the DSMC2, so really, except for upgrades... you can have one or the other, it's the same look at the same settings.

    Yeah, I just got a Weapon Dragon. I am going to see if I can get my hands on a DSMC2 Dragon-X and compare the two myself.
