I think Brooks idea of having a mount for the wifi controls in the back that then can be the mount the "cradle/cage" was a good idea.
Well, I'm liking this break out box a lot!
Jim, does this fully replace or mount on top of the existing side panel? Will this mean that without the BOB there will be the option of a side mounted power/drive connector?
I think it's really beautiful.
You guys are wonderful designers.
My main concern is shown here:
I believe that minimizing this distance is important. I think I'd rather see the additional area, now on the front bottom section of the camera be on top.
Ok so please understand my underlying reasoning behind the suggestion I'm going to make:
1. There is no reason to think of the camera as having a proper top and bottom or left of right side. On a digital camera we can easily flip the image so the main thing that matters in terms of how we orient the camera is that the operators side is clear in most situations.
2. Most situations where the operator side must be clear, we have more additional clearance above the camera.
3. Its not neccessary to have clearance for rods underneath the mount and in some cases under the lense. When a pulling focus handheld we shall often use a remote focus unit, which can mount from top rods eliminating the need to access the rods directly below the lense.
4. Their is an advantage to having the nodal point as close as possible to the shoulder. It's nice to at least have the option.
Here's what came into my mind.
You can see the actual shape of the body is just rotated.
It's late, can't sleep and I'm being creative.
But what if You were to put some wide-front lens (like the Ultra-Prime 10) - wouldn't that interfere with the "Shoulder Mount / Baseplate"?
EDIT: I also think the center of gravity is little more back - somewhere around where the XLR's are...
You guys need a lesson on board design and cramming ten tons of corn into a half pound bag. Look at the D-20, the Dalsa, The F-35, the Genesis and tell me we aren't doing a miracle here. Once again... this is NOT a film camera. If you want an Aaton on your shoulder, go buy a lot of film. We have been trying to listen and respond. But you guys are crazy... :-) Wouldn't it be nice if we just lowered the price to $2K? Getting 5K to operate at 100fps in a body that is 1/3 smaller than a RED ONE (already a small camera compared to anything close- or, forgot... there isn't anything close) and run at higher data rates without melting the skin off you fingers is a trick in and of itself.
We are pretty well done here.
