Shot on DXL

What filmmakers say about DXL2

"One of the reasons I picked the DXL2 was the way it renders flares. They have a different quality on that camera that instinctually felt right."

Alice Brooks ASC
Cinematographer, In The Heights

"To be able to change and swap between large format and 35mm anamorphic lenses on another camera would have been complicated, but on the DXL2, it was simple."

"It seems to reach into the darkness, and it seems to have more color. I'm just amazed at what the DXL2 can capture."

Fred Murphy ASC

Capture your scene’s subtleties.

Panavision’s DXL2 8K camera with the RED Monstro sensor offers 16 bits of color across 35 million pixels at up to 60 fps. One of the quietest signal-to-noise ratios on the market, Monstro delivers unprecedented dynamic range and color with unmatched sensitivity.

Find Your Format

DXL2’s stock SP70 mount can be easily adapted in the field to System 65, PV35, or PL, allowing multiple formats and any Panavision lens to be used with the convenience of a single camera.

Wireless Timecode

 DXL2 is the first camera to implement wireless timecode using the Ambient Communication Network (ACN). With ACN, cameras, slates, and sound can be jammed together without any hardwired cables. DXL2 continues to auto-jam timecode every 6 seconds, which eliminates all timecode drifting. This dramatically simplifies the timecode process and eliminates dailies audio slip-syncing.

DXL Control

DXL Control is an iOS and Android app that allows DXL2 full menu access, including run/stop, from a smartphone. The app offers a real-time visual histogram as well as the ability to remotely program up to eight shortcuts. DXL2 Control can link to a single camera or control multiple cameras from a single device. Available free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.


DXL2 is fully equipped with an internal CDL engine, which allows users to create, import, export, and recall unlimited CDLs locally or remotely. For users who want the greatest control, Pomfort Livegrade can connect to the DXL2 and wirelessly upload custom looks to the camera.


DXL2 utilizes the RCP protocol to allow apps and devices to directly control the camera. RCP control is accessed through WiFi, Ethernet, or serial ports. RCP SDK is available for third-party development, allowing for integration with popular devices such as Semote or UltiMote for external camera control.
