It’s always exciting for me to get a new camera for my film production set. Although I’ve been working in the industry for a long time, it still feels a bit like Christmas as a child when I finally get my hands on my new toy.
This is why I’m very excited to present the newest addition to my set up: the brand new RED V-Raptor XL. The camera is so powerful, fast and versatile that it became a game changer in the industry. It is the perfect choice for companies that need breathtaking visuals for their marketing portfolios. In this blog we will take a closer look at the camera so that you can decide if it is the right choice for your company.
The benefits of the RED V-Raptor XL
The RED V-Raptor XL features a new Super 35 sensor design that offers stunning image quality and a 17-stop dynamic range – a huge improvement in comparison to previous RED cameras. This camera supports internal recording with a resolution of 8K and a maximum frame rate of 120 fps, which perfectly complements our RED Monster, that also films in 8K and 50 fps. V-Raptor’s autofocus algorithm is fast and accurate, with advanced control tools such as focus point adjustment and focus point patterns.
The RED V-Raptor XL was developed based on ideal ergonomic design and ease of use. The body is made of durable magnesium and the weight is perfectly balanced for easy handling. The camera is equipped with all the necessary controls and functions and offers intuitive navigation through the menu. That’s why the camera is perfectly suited for all kinds of shoots. Especially the built-in ND-Filter is making my work very easy. And I’m very surprised by the menu and the handling of the new screen – almost feels a bit like an apple product.
I’m also trying to reduce my ecological footprint and live more sustainably. The RED V-Raptor XL is an eco-friendly camera that works with renewable energy resources. Power consumption is minimal and the battery can be easily replaced and recycled. The camera also has an updated fan and produces less noise than previous RED models, which is pleasant. With that companies can also rely on new technology for ecological reasons.
The RED V-Raptor XL is compatible with a variety of additional accessories. Some of these are a follow focus, shoulder mount, viewfinder and more. This allows companies to adapt their camera to individual needs and get even more options for flexible shooting and creative approaches.

The camera offers excellent performance, portability and ease of use and is a game changer compared to other film cameras on the market.
