V-RAPTOR® XL [X] 8K VV combines the strengths of RED’s two families of cameras into one powerful all-purpose workhorse. The frame rates, lowlight performance, and resolution of the V-RAPTOR line combined with the global shutter advancements of KOMODO®, the V-RAPTOR [X] 8K VV sensor is the culmination of the latest advancements in digital cinema image making. Using RED’s newest 8K VV sensor, V-RAPTOR XL [X] leverages the benefits and flexibility of large format, global shutter, high framerate, 8K acquisition, all inside of a large-scale-production ready XL camera body.


V-RAPTOR XL [X] is designed to support high-end motion picture and television productions as well as any filmmaker who would benefit an all-in-one solution.

  • Dual voltage battery support offers compatibility with a wide range of common batteries found on set today, both 14 V batteries and high voltage 26 V V-Lock or Gold Mount options.
  • Built-in electronic ND allows cinematographers to precisely select their density in 1/4, 1/3, and full stop increments, providing never before seen exposure and depth of field control inside a cinema camera of this level.
  • 12 V and 24 V auxiliary power outputs allows camera assistants to power all the peripherals needed to do their job from one centralized place.
  • Front facing 3G-SDI and 2-Pin 12 V power, as well as compatibility with the DSMC3 RED Touch 7.0” LCD, supports any camera operators viewing preference.
  • Wireless timecode, genlock, and camera control, as well as four SDI outputs support the DIT, giving them access to everything they need at their cart.
  • Improved in-camera audio performance for run and gun single system audio setups.

Additionally, the V-RAPTOR XL [X] and the DSMC platform features advanced connectivity solutions which enable applications such as remote control and monitoring, in-camera Frame.io integration, AWS direct upload, RED® Connect for live 8K R3D video over IP or live 4K over SMPTE ST 2110, and more.


V-RAPTOR XL [X] 8K VV is pushed to new limits with the introduction of RED Global Vision, a new suite of tools that use the global shutter sensor to provide even more flexibility and ease of use throughout the production process. Global Vision’s Extended Highlights allows the camera to see even further into highlight detail, providing more detail for HDR finishes, or softer and more subtle highlight roll-off for SDR. RED Global Vision also includes Phantom Track to streamline any Virtual Production environment employing GhostFrame or Frame Remapping, capturing distinct R3D clips per each sub-frame slice, as well as allowing for monitoring of either slice live on-set over each SDI.
