    To be clear, I'm not saying you have to spend $10K. Just trying to provide a reality check for people who see Komodo as a 6K for $6K camera ready to shoot.

    I do think RED should offer a bundle of some kind. I'd suggest:

    2x BP955 batteries
    4x 256GB CFast media cards
    Baseplate module
    Case

    If you aren't adding any gack to the rig - FF/Wireless TX/etc then why not keep it simple and use the BP955's Jarred suggests. OTOH, if you need to power other devices, I'd be very interested in a...

    Do we know the resolution of the built in display? In theory you could attach a loupe to magnify the "postage stamp" sized image but I'm doubtful that would be effective unless the display is 600ppi...

    Commodity batteries and media are cost savers, for sure. That said, if you are putting together a Komodo based package for professional shoots, I'd budget $10K and be happy if it's less.
    I'd also...

    I use and have had good results with TimeCode Systems and their "matchboxes". That said, would be great if external devices - no matter how small - were superseded by an internal solution.

    1) Evin's test, flaws and all, still gives valuable perspective on what one can expect from each camera in common usage.

    Thanks for posting a shot of the baseplate/EXT breakout module, looks very slick. That said, I was hoping for an Ethernet port to support tethered recording of R3Ds. I realize that Komodo is not...

    The orthodoxy has always been that J2K variants require modest encoding effort, but pretty serious decoding muscle. AFAIK, Cineform balances that out a bit which makes decoding faster, at the expense...

    FWIW, as a general rule, Cinematographers don't like being "marketed to". They also tend to stick with what they know and trust. IMHO, the only thing that will motivate top DPs to try something new...

    Sad, but true - when you make a better mousetrap all the folks who have built skill sets with the old mousetraps push back.

    If your Epic MX has the sensor positioning adjustment screw - and the discrepancy is relatively small - you should be able to get it to focus. No idea how par focal that old lens is to begin with,...

    For zooms on Monstro, I'd look at the Fujinon Premistas; 28-100mm (2.9 throughout) and 80-250mm (ramps from 2.9-3.5). There's also the Angie EZ set that has a removable rear optical block so you can...

    Had a fresh Dynacore fall about 3 feet (1m) onto cement, it cracked open and small parts flew around. Not repairable, straight to recycle. Not blaming Dynacore, I'm the idiot who dropped it.
