  • The 8K resolution provides the ability to crop multiple shots in a lower resolution from a single 8K take.
Wide Array of Compatible Lenses
  • Super35 lens choices provide a more compact form while offering a wide range of zoom and prime lenses for both broadcast and cine-style productions.
  • The locking Canon RF lens mount supports select RF to Canon EF-mount adapters, further expanding your lens selection.

What is the dynamic range? Will there be a HDRX mode like DSMC2 used to have? (For 20+ stops)
Asked by: Philipp
The RED DIGITAL CINEMA V-RAPTOR 8K S35 Sensor Camera is still being tested by RED, but it is expected that the dynamic range on the camera will exceed 15 stops. Once the RED DIGITAL CINEMA V-RAPTOR 8K S35 Sensor Camera starts shipping, we will have a better understanding.

Will this camera support wireless timecode & genlock? With Atomos Ultrasync and Tentacle Sync?
Asked by: Philipp
Yes. The current VV raptor and Komodo have TC/Gen. This will have it in the exact same way (you just need the right cable or module). The XL will actually have dedicated TC and Gen ports since there's a lot more room on it.

Is there a Super 35 sensor option? For S35 lenses (anamorphic, etc.), the camera will crop into 6K otherwise which means less resolution than EPIC-W/DSMC2.
Asked by: Philipp
There is only 1 sensor for the V-Raptor Camera. RED may create a Super 35mm DSMC3 Camera in the future but at this time the V-Raptor is the first and only DSMC3 camera. It is 8K in Vista Vision and 6K in Super 35mm.

What is the video size per minute (for example at 8k 24 and 8k 120)? How fast do those 660 GB cards fill up?
Asked by: Jack
At this moment RED does not have a Komodo storage calculator. However you can use this calculator to check Komodo storage times. Just select RED RANGER using the sensor in 2K https://www.red.com/recording-time At 2K full frame 120p a 512GB card would store 107min at 5:1 which is similar to Komodo in REDCODE RAW HQ mode. General Storage specs - HQ - High data rate - Up to ~ 280 MB/s (~30 minutes recording time)* MQ - Medium data rate (default) - ~175 MB/s (~48 minutes recording time)* LQ - Lowest data rate - ~110 MB/s (~1 hour and 17 minutes recording time)* * Data rate assumes camera settings at 6K 17:9, 23.98 FPS. Recording time assumes a 512 GB CFast card. Your actual data rate will depend on complexity of the shooting scene and capture settings. Data rates subject to change with future updates.

We cannot guarantee compatibility with non-RED media. However, the RED CFexpress cards are the only ones certified by RED for use in their cameras.
