    You’ve been pretty lucky. I used to get my shipments from them in two days(via free shipping option), but it seems like it takes at least that long before they even ship out, now(6 days to leave the...

    Just remember, you will have to power it. Not a big deal, and easy enough if you are running Gold or V-mounts and a plate with d-taps. There are tiny passive SDI splitters, but most are 3G.

    Not trying to bring you down, but instead be a voice of reason. As many others across many boards have said before, including myself, buy a camera for what it can do today, not what is promised (or...

    Yes, we used to shoot 30fps back in the day, but only kinda-sorta-not-really. We were shooting 30 fps Interlaced, so we had two fields per frame, which gave us the motion cadence of 60 frames per...

    Since the "Covid Shutdown" last year, they have been anything but reliable. For years, they have been the gold standard, so to speak, for ease and speed. If I had my order placed before the late...

    Poster right before you said he ordered mid-December and its almost mid-April, that's right at four months. And poster right after you said 21 weeks, which is over five months.

    Depends on where you shoot the most and what you want to see(is a more accurate image more important?). If you are outside or in bright(er) environments the majority of the time, the brighter LCD...

    No. The expander module does not have SDI out(although they are BNC’s).

    Which Teradek? Most have a loop-out. But my recommendation would be to have a monitoring device(monitor of VF) that has a...

    You can probably file that one under “shoulda left well enough alone”, meaning you shouldn’t have canceled it, because now you will be waiting even longer(or could have possibly even had it already)....

    What was your deductible? Honestly, if it was me and something got broken or stolen and it was in the $1,000 ballpark, I wouldn't make a claim and have that on my "insurance record".

    If it was...

    The 12mm rod is really stupid.

    I think you can only use their components. But that motor is pretty strong. It seems to have more than enough power on my Canon CN-E’s, when I’ve tested them. I...

    Seamless paper is great, and what I prefer, because you don’t have to deal with wrinkles like with cloth screens, but it’s a PITA to transport, for obvious reasons. If I still did a lot of green...

    I used 7” on-cam monitors for years(the slightly ahead of its time, still my most beloved monitors, the smallHD DP7 Pro OLED touchscreen). Then smallHD came out with the Focus line of 5” monitors...

    YMMV, but I ran some rough numbers several months ago before it released, and despite owning a ton of gear already, I think I was looking at somewhere around $10K-$12K minimum to put the Komodo into...

    Talking to a sales rep today that is a RED premium/premier(whatever) dealer and they said RED has told them that lead time on a Komodo is 16 weeks(Four Months). So if you order one today(March), the...

    If you have a motor than can run on 5V, RED has provided the pin/wiring diagram for the EXT port. Just reach out to a cable builder and have a custom cable made that breaks out into what you need. ...

    Been using a 4-position Dolgin since I got the original C300. Rock solid. AND you can change the battery plates on them to accommodate other batteries.

    To me, adding all this “stuff” just kind of defeats the purpose of the small and lightweight systems(because it doesn’t take much before they become unwieldy and too heavy for all but the very...

    While the smallHD monitor control isn't all it's cracked up to be, the app is pretty darn cool. Me and my friend were both able to access, see and control his camera simultaneously from each of our...

    Pretty sure you can’t... Did a multi-cam shoot with a friend last week and two of the cams were their Gemini and Komodo. It was just a “normal” SDI cable on the Komodo and we were shooting 4K and...

    The Outrigger handle isn't that great. I shot with a friends all day on a multi-cam shoot we did together last week and I didn't like it. It's too far away from the body, too skinny(despite the...
