    Interesting...

    Saw this in canon mount file on red.com

    possible handheld/ENG/EFP applications for motor focus/iris.

    I think it's a remote control

    To quote Red.com:

    "The combination of high image quality plus remote focus and iris control from RED’s SuperGrip™ or other remote controllers, means the entry price point for 4K resolution digital imaging is dramatically lowered, opening up significant new applications."

    On the pricelist page there is a thing called RedMotor , I just started a thread about what that is... hopefully answers will come soon!

    I would cancel B4 adapter (no 2K RAW) and get this option to replace it...4K instead of 2k with lens control and canon still lenses with powered IS...

    Also excellent for crane and steady cam applications....Nikkor mount goes...B4 mount goes...Canon mount in....


    Sweet.

    I never planned to shoot Red with any one of my 5 Canon lenses, but with a break-through like this...Hell!

    I think it might put pressure on the 300mm RED Telephoto sales.

    Canons 300mm IS is less then 4900 bucks....

    I'm sure pulling focus electronically might be tricky....i guess we'll see!

    Yeah Billy i was the same , i did 't really have any expectations about using all my L series glass on my RED. But now it seems like a really serious option...! Might get me through the first few months before i get some RED glass....! Great news
