ZACK SNYDER

“The V-RAPTOR XL has everything we need. We already knew the V-RAPTOR sensor produces great images, but now with added features that come with XL, we're even more excited. The internal ND system has an amazing benefit to our production methodology. We're shooting wide open all the time, so that is just vital. The XL is an amazing studio camera. With technology like this, there’s no excuses left, now it’s on you.” – Zack Snyder, Director / Cinematographer
