The RED V-RAPTOR 8K is the flagship release of the new DSMC3 platform. This dual-format RF mount cinema camera is only slightly larger than the KOMODO, allowing cinematographers to take this highly powerful camera anywhere. Here are the standout features of this modernized platform from RED:

  • Multi-format sensor offering large-format 8K VV and 6K Super 35 as well 4K, 3K, Super 16, and a bunch of anamorphic options for ultimate shooting adaptability.
  • 2x faster than prior RED cameras with 2K shooting up to 600 FPS and even 8K 17:9 at 120 FPS with a host of options in between.
  • The latest IPP2 pipeline with advanced color space and Log3G10 encoding that retains extreme highlight and shadow detail while simplifying your color management workflow to be more industry standard. Also, a new, fixed optical low-pass filter is employed.
  • This camera does not have a global shutter. However, the rolling shutter offers scan times 2x faster than prior models with high-speed readouts that nearly eliminate all motion artifacts. The RAPTOR also offers phase-detection AF. This giant sensor is the result of aligning ("stitching") two sensors together, the same as in all of RED's Vista Vision systems.
  • Equipped with dual integrated mics for scratch-track audio as well as 5-pin XLR for 2-channel audio/line/mic with +48V phantom power for external audio. Gain for the internal and external channels can be linked for easy adjustment of all channels at once. Record with internal, external, or combined as 24-bit 48 kHz uncompressed tracks. The data is synced with timecode and audio is embedded in SDI out. Audio data can be separately exported using REDCINE-X PRO.
  • Connection to the RED Control app for live streaming over 5GHz WiFi/USB-C or for using your mobile device for live monitoring. Use Ethernet devices with the help of an Ethernet-to-USB-C adapter (not included).

A few important things to note: The RAPTOR takes Micro V-Mount batteries (1 is included) and CFExpress B memory cards (not included). Currently, this camera is officially only compatible with RED/Angelbird 660GB CFexpress B 2.0 cards. Please also note that new DSMC3 7" RED/SmallHD monitor is connected through a locking USB-C style cable for both video and power but it's not interchangeable with standard USB-C cables. It's a proprietary RMI cable in the USB-C format. For more information, please see the DSMC3 monitor quick start guide.

With over 17 stops of dynamic range, a vast I/O array including dual 12G-SDI outputs, and an integrated right-side control display with physical buttons for easy settings navigation (especially handy for assistant operators), this is RED's most powerful and intuitive camera to date.
