    Well, sorry Red engineers, but whoever decided that it was a good idea to have two dumb places and two dumb places only, that you can install your on board monitor should get out on set more. I mean sure, I bet it was a great idea when you were high.

    Fortunately that is a pretty easy fix. The wooden camera top plate replaces both of the pogo ports with lemos for your monitor and EVF. Having two is great. The base expander puts all the cables in the right place finally. It's really nice to not fight with cables to plug in time code or bncs anymore.

    Maybe the hardest pill to swallow with the upgrade is forking over the money for new media if you don't already have mini mags, but they download so fast, it's worth it.

    Overall, you'll be very happy with DSMC2.

    The LAOWA WOOKIE whatever the fuck lens is pretty cool. It's a little soft wide open, and crazy warm color temp wise, but it lets you do some really cool stuff. And come to think of it, all of the probe lenses I've used were kind of soft wide open and most of them cost about 10 times what the chinese one does.
