The RED DIGITAL CINEMA V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV Camera (V-Mount), combining the strengths of the RED DIGITAL CINEMA V-RAPTOR line with the advanced global shutter of the KOMODO camera. As the flagship DSMC3 camera, it introduces groundbreaking features, including being the first large-format global shutter camera and offering RED's Global Vision suite of tools for unparalleled flexibility and dynamic range. This -RAPTOR [X] 8K VV Camera (V-Mount) all-encompassing camera boasts 8K resolution, a crisp global shutter, exceptional low-light performance, and high frame rate capabilities—all within a compact and feature-rich body weighing just over 4 lb.

New Large-Format Standard

This new DSMC3 flagship camera is the first large-format global shutter camera and the first to offer RED's Global Vision with a suite of tools that provide unprecedented flexibility and dynamic range. Key features shared with the original V-RAPTOR include a locking Canon RF lens mount, two unique 12G-SDI monitoring outputs, and dual CFexpress Type B card slots that support up to 8K120 capture. The V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV also features a redesigned sensor cavity that mitigates stray light and improves contrast, plus improved in-camera audio preamps.

Advanced, Intelligent Focus

In-camera processing and on-sensor, enhanced phase-detection autofocus plus all-new face detection enables the V-RAPTOR [X] to offer versatility and confidence to all levels of filmmakers.

Global Shutter

The global shutter accurately captures your subject's motion, no matter how fast they're moving, with no distortion or Jello-like effects sometimes found with a rolling shutter. With the global shutter, you can capture every movement, flash, and burst without any compromise in image quality, dynamic range, or flexibility in post-production.

RED Global Vision

With the V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV, RED has introduced its Global Vision suite of tools that uses the global shutter sensor to offer even greater flexibility and ease of use throughout your production process. These tools include Extended Highlights for increasing detail, producing finer HDR finishes or softer, more subtle highlight roll-offs when using SDR. Extended Highlights also offers 3+ stops of additional dynamic range, maintaining color and detail even within extreme highlights.

Dynamic Range

The 17+ stops of dynamic range in standard modes and up to 20+ with Extended Highlights enable the V-RAPTOR [X] to deliver both smooth highlight roll-off and uncompromising low-light performance.

Phantom Track

The Phantom Track function streamlines any virtual production workflow using GhostFrame or frame remapping, capturing distinct R3D clips for each subframe slice in addition to enabling monitoring of either slice live on set over each SDI output. This enables your director and talent to work with the aid of a green screen background while the VF/X team can simultaneously view the frame without having to view or lock in that background. Phantom Track can also be used when applying dedicated ad overlays during a live broadcast.

Up to 8K 120 fps

Unmatched frame-rate performance enables V-RAPTOR [X] users to leverage creative elements like time-lapse or speed ramping or to extract ultrasharp still photos. Frame rate options include 8K, 6K, 4K, and 2K selections.

Built-In Control Display

The integrated side display provides intuitive, and easily navigable, comprehensive control, including in-camera format selections, customized buttons, and more.

Virtual Production/Advanced Connectivity

The V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV uses a DSMC3 platform to offer advanced connectivity solutions like remote control, remote monitoring, in-camera integrations, AWS (Amazon Web Services) direct upload, the RED Connect module for live 8K R3D video over IP or live 4K via SMPTE ST 2110, and more. These enhanced features put the V-RAPTOR [X] at the forefront of technology used for virtual production.

Live Streaming and Control Pro App

Connect the V-RAPTOR [X] using fiber cable and the RED CONNECT module to live stream 8K full-resolution, cinematic video over an IP network. Use the RED Control Pro iOS/Android app and the all-new RED CONNECT technology to unlock the V-RAPTOR [X]'s capabilities.

All-New Audio Architecture

Newly engineered audio hardware provides cleaner, clearer audio when using external microphones with the V-RAPTOR [X].

Durable, Rugged Design

Designed with water and dust-resistant materials in critical areas of its body, the V-RAPTOR [X] is suitable for a wide variety of environments. However, it is not waterproof and should be handled as you would any high-end
