The RED V-RAPTOR is an 8K VV DSMC3 digital cinema camera. Sized only slightly larger than the KOMODO with a new 8K sensor. For example, capture in 8K VV, 6K Super35, 4K, 3K Super16, and anamorphic options. The V-RAPTOR’s RF lens mount is compatible with a range of adapters. For example shoot with PL or EF lenses. The Raptor has dual 12G-SDI outputs, and 16-bit REDCODE Raw at significantly higher frame rates. In addition, 1080 streaming, 17+ stops of dynamic range, and phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). These make the RED V-RAPTOR suitabile for a range of production styles.

Full-Frame Sensor

The new 35.4MP full-frame sensor at the heart of the V-RAPTOR provides 17+ stops of dynamic range. In addition, the Raptor excels in low-light. Offering the lowest noise floor of the RED lineup. Also, the shutter’s high-speed readout is almost twice as fast as that of the MONSTRO. This new sensor also enables phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). Finally, a new fixed OLPF (optical low-pass filter) captures RED’s signature colour quality and sensitivity.

Input and Outputs

Dual 12G-SDI ports enable you to output mirror feeds to two displays. Alternatively, set up with individual feeds. For example, with or without focus peaking, timecode, or other displays, or with two different looks. A USB Type-C port outputs up to 1080p video for streaming or other uses.

High-Speed and REDCODE Options

  • The V-RAPTOR delivers with high-speed frame rates options. These include 8K 17:9 at 120 fps, 6K S35 at 198 fps, 4K 17:9 at 240 fps. And 2K 2.4:1 up to a blazing 600 fps.
  • REDCODE Raw options have been simplified with HQ, MQ, and LQ selections. Because the 8K sensor captures such massive detail, RED recommends trying MQ or even LQ for most uses. HQ being ideal for F/X work. Finally, data rates range from 180 MB/s in LQ to 360 MB/s in HQ.
