    Again nice with small batteries. Until you got a FIZ and a wireless on there. Then those batteries does not last for days but minutes so all Im saying is for a lot of applications even if the camera draw no power you need a real battery the need to have such on rails or somthing like the alexa mini would not be as nice as a bridge between the current dual battery mounts an a vlock. Even if its nice to be able to keep it small, small cameras real problem has usually been how difficult it is to dress up big without going all frankenstien. A nice Vlock solution would solve alot.

    Then C fast vs propietary minimags... Minimags would not need to be so costly. In reality / hardware vice cfast is more costly then minimags.

    This actually sounds super exciting some how as I never intended to use the Hydrogen as a camera Monitoring device, and can't wait to find this new things out.

    Well, very happy I kept my "Houdini Hydrogen One" despite no updates since forever, so I'm very happy to hear that it was a very good investment despite having it done solely to SUPPORT the program, and as you know Jarred I don't well with PC and neither I was ever able to do well with Android, but I have been using it for an entire year, and now will be back to iPhone and my good old iOS ;)

    Hopefully while I opted out of the Ti to get the earlier Houdini still leaves me in that "Pole Position" because I sure can't wait to get my hands on that little big beast of a "Baby Dragon" the Komodo ;)

Komodo doesn't send a normal video signal that any traditional or DSMC2 monitor would receive.. so the idea of just bolting a DSMC2 monitor or adapter on the top of it wouldn't work.

    A "smart" adapter may work... but that would basically need to be a phone chip inside the cradle with a video conversion which would add latency.. in which case you are kinda better of just using the SDI port.
    Thanks for the infos.

    I already imagine setups with an iPad Pro ^_^

    Guess we don’t have to send in our Hydrogens for this discount as we probably want to use it with Komodo?
    Hope my H1 #392 will help me get this camera as soon as possible then. Would love to be a test shooter too, if that’s a thing :)
    I’m really existed about getting back into RED camera ownership!

Being able to power everything with one sort of power is gold. Whatever the small betteries are Im sure I for one would rate have a big brick on the back of the back of the camera pretty much always.
    Are the Canon battery mounts strong enough to support a heavy brick battery like that?

    If you're going to build up a bigger rig anyway, why not go for a rail-mounted battery plate? That way, you could leave a Canon battery installed on the camera, allowing you to hot swap the V mounts at any time? You could also go for one that holds the battery parallel to the ground to lower the center of gravity. My V mounts are quite a bit taller than Komodo so I'd rather lay them flat.

    Then you could also throw a quick release between the camera and the rail system so that you can detach it from the big rig if you ever needed to go small at a moment's notice. Presumably for a camera that can get thrown into a Gimbal rather quickly, I think this is preferable. You can leave the big rig built up and just move the camera around rather than rebuild/reconfigure.

    Possibly your right and I guess tilta and others will be all over it to provide solutions for such setups. just that I had my fair share of red volts and XL batteries and chargers. No Dtap and not enough power and so on.

    WHAT IF we could get a dual V-Mount or Gold Mount battery plate that works with two dummy batteries so for like documentary shooters or just users who want to build up their Komodo rig can have like a huge battery life ? Or maybe for people who have a few accessories that need power around the camera ? (like a monitor and a wireless follow focus)
    Something that would look like this (sorry, I know it's an Alexa on the image) :

I've been very upfront with what Komodo is not from the start.
    Going back to the fps question. Would you say that there's a limit in the sensor that unables higher fps? Or limitations in cooling, or in processing? If it's locked down by the hardware, would it be possible to get the fps numbers you're going for? Is guessing 30 fps @ 6K, 40 fps @ 5K and 60 fps @ 4K a qualified guess for Komodo?

    That's certainly getting into larger camera territory, but there's nothing stopping you from rigging Komodo that way via rods and a battery plate feeding into the DC IN. Sure you could shark fin that and get some crazy run times.

    We don't know the power draw on Komodo yet, but Jarred said it runs for a long while on BP975s which are only about 55Wh each and it can hold two of those while maintaining the small height form factor.

    I'm still hoping for 50fps at 5K, but I think your guess is probably a bit more realistic.
