Designed for demanding use in the studio and on location, the all-in-one PL-mount RED RANGER MONSTRO 8K VV from RED DIGITAL CINEMA features a unibody design with integrated inputs and outputs, 24V power output, a 5-pin XLR audio input, a shimmed PL mount, and a larger built-in fan for improved thermal performance. With a unibody aluminum design and an integrated V-mount battery plate, this 8K capture solution is ideal for rental house and high-end production use as well as for individual users. The MONSTRO 8K VV full-frame sensor boasts up to 17 stops of dynamic range and can record the full image circle of full-frame 35mm lenses. You can also use Super35 lenses with a windowed capture area for high frame rate recording.

RED's versatile REDCODE RAW codec uses wavelet compression to reduce data rates while maintaining a visually lossless image rendering. This efficient codec can be edited on many available NLE software programs without transcoding, though if you prefer a proxy workflow, ProRes or DNx files can be recorded simultaneously to the MINI-MAG media. Lowering the recording resolution allows the sensor to capture higher frame rates for dramatic slow-motion footage. The DSMC2 cameras use sensor windowing to record slow motion in lower resolutions, requiring wider or smaller-format lenses to compensate for the additional crop. Recording rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher.


RED's MONSTRO 8K 40.96 x 21.6mm sensor can take advantage of full-frame 35mm lenses, recording at rates up to 60 fps at full resolution. Higher frame rates, up to 300 fps, can be made available by windowing the sensor to lower resolutions. RED measured the MONSTRO sensor as having 17 stops of dynamic range, able to represent both deep shadows and bright highlights in the same frame.

All-in-One Form Factor with V-Mount Plate

Unibody aluminum design with integrated inputs and outputs, 24V power out, 5-pin audio input, a shimmed PL mount, and a larger, built-in fan for improved thermal performance. The built-in plate enables you to use longer-lasting V-mount batteries.


The cornerstone of RED's workflow is the robust REDCODE RAW file format. Using wavelet compression with ratios ranging from 2:1 to 22:1, REDCODE RAW offers the versatility of raw files without the overwhelming storage requirements of uncompressed image data. Since REDCODE RAW has been around since the days of the RED ONE cinema camera, many common NLE software programs including Adobe Premiere Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Avid Media Composer can import and edit REDCODE RAW footage without transcoding, saving production time in the edit suite. Capture rates range from 12 fps and up, including 24/25/30/48/50/60 fps and higher options.

Note: Not all compression ratios are available at all resolutions and frame rates.

Apple ProRes and Avid DNx Formats

For projects requiring proxy files or quicker turnaround times than raw files permit, Apple ProRes or Avid DNx formats can be recorded at 4K and 2K resolutions directly to the onboard MINI-MAG media. Since these debayered video files can be recorded alongside the raw files, no extra time is required for transcoding the proxies. Bring the debayered files straight into your NLE and begin editing.
