View Full Version : B4 Red zoom/power handle?

Does anyone know when Red will release the power/zoom control/iris handle? It would be nice to have all of the features of a 2/3" ENG lens available from the handle. Also, any word on if auto iris and auto focus will be available for 2/3" B4 applications. How does the 2X extender look with a 2/3" lens ? Lots of questions.

By "the power/zoom control/iris handle" I presume you are referring to the Supergrip. There is no official timing for this as far as I know, also I am not sure whether it will control a B4 mount lens directly. Definitely there is no auto iris or auto focus.

You won't need the SuperGrip to run and gun with a B4 mount lens, just a LEMO to Hirose adaptor cable that we are just finishing testing on. With this cable, the B4 lens interface provides (with Build 12 camera firmware) remote record start / stop, last clip playback, and 12V DC power to the lens zoom motor. Iris and focus will be manual ...
