RED V-Raptor 8K VV

The new DSMC3 range of ROSSO writes its first page with the V-Raptor 8K VV camera, available now.

ROSSO defines the new V-Raptor 8K VV its “most powerful” camera to date. The system boasts the highest dynamic range, fastest film-quality sensor scan time, cleanest shadows, and highest frame rate of any camera in the RED lineup.

The V-Raptor features a multi-format 8K sensor (40.96mm x 21.60mm) with the ability to shoot in 8K large format or Super 35 6K. Together with its predecessor, the Monstro 8K VV sensor, this option allows photographers to take advantage of any of their large-format or S35 lenses and always deliver a resolution higher than 4K. Similarly, the V-Raptor presents users with the option to capture full-sensor 8K at up to 120 frames per second (150 fps at 2.4:1), 6K at up to 160 fps (200 fps at 2.4:1) and 2K (2.4:1) at 600 frames per second, while still capturing more than 17 stops of dynamic range.

Like the other cameras in RED’s ecosystem, the V-Raptor leverages RED’s proprietary Redcode RAW codec, allowing users to capture 16-bit RAW and take advantage of RED’s IPP2 workflow and color management tools.


Features and connections

RED’s latest offering features a professional I/O matrix that includes two 4K 12G-SDI outputs, XLR audio with phantom power capability via an adapter, and an integrated USB-C interface that enables features such as remote control or Ethernet networking.

The V-Raptor 8K VV, with a compact, rugged, water- and dust-resistant size, features among its most notable specifications an RF lens mount with locking mechanism; wireless control and preview via Wi-Fi; phase detection autofocus; and a newly designed integrated display located on the side of the camera, which enables comprehensive controls such as in-camera format selection, custom buttons, status updates, etc.

Moreover, the RED V-Raptor 8K can handle data rates of up to 800 MB/s using CFexpress media cards; features an integrated micro v-mount battery plate; a 60 mm fan for quieter and more stable heat management; and wireless connectivity via the free RED Control app, which is now available for iOS and Android devices.
