    When is DSMC 3 expected to come? is it worthy to invest in DSMC 2 still?

    Long ago when DSMC2 was launched RED stated they would be committed to the DSMC2 form factor until at least 2020. So from that perspective 2020 is the earliest we'd see DSMC3. If true to form and 2020 is the year of a new body type, likely around a Spring reveal and shipping Q3 or Q4. But that is if it's a next year mission.

    Interestingly since what was mainly known as DSMC2 Weapon at the time we've seen things like Ranger, which I believe are part of the DSMC2 "family" of cameras and essentially a new body type as well as new sensor technologies and whatever Komodo's body type will be designated.

    From one perspective, RED traditionally provides upgrade paths and even credits when moving up to new body types. We haven't heard a peep of the plan yet, but it's likely there will be an upgrade path from DSMC2 to DSMC3 that will result in a discount. For instance there have been $10K upgrades w/ even accessory credits to move you into much more expensive if purchased as new cameras. Which has worked well when looking at cameras that are in the $50-80K territory.

    Lot's of speculation about what exactly DSMC3 will look like physically and spec-wise. However, we're seeing some newer technologies in things like Komodo that might be hinting at potential features that could translate into the larger brains. We don't really know about any sort of module compatibility, media compatibility, accessory compatibility, or really anything. DSMC3 has only been mentioned lightly, but not even close to officially announced.

    The only thing that is certain, since the invention of DSMC2 many technologies have advanced rapidly that effect what is desired in our future cameras.

    I'd love to see a 65mm DSMC3 variant with on-die (CMOS sensor) DRAM in a body that incorporates everything that RED has learned about camera design, packed with the latest technology, and using Type-C CFExpress, which would give RED the latitude to open up the throttle, figuratively speaking.

    A dust cap for the media bay. Doesn't have to be mechanically integrated, just something that fits snugly over the media slot when the camera's not in use.

    Stick a mag in there. Dual purpose, no dust and always ready to shot.

    it would be great for the DSMC3 to be able to work on real shoots when it comes out and not have to wait a year for firmware and accessories to get sorted out.
