    Komodo begs for a pistol grip solution with record trigger centered under the camera for single handed balance, one hand for the camera, one for the lens. Similar to the grips used on Bolex and B&H 16mm film cameras.

    How would it work out going handheld without a shoulder mount on such a small body without lens stabilization?

    My D16 rig above weighs in at 8lbs with the Angie 12-120 run and gun setup shown. I hold it across the body, similar to a Weaver pistol stance, but held centered to the the chest. Weight is carried by the skeletal structure. You feel the load across the shoulders. The monopod against the body and your eye on the evf stabilize it quite nicely. I’ve carried this around street festivals for hours at a time with very little muscle fatigue. It’s heavy enough to damp out small movements. I’ve thought about trying a parade flag harness to support the foot of the monopod, but haven’t bothered.
    It isn’t gimbal smooth, but it can be quite stable.
    I suspect a similar setup with short rod base and an audio preamp mounted on the back would work well for Komodo and weigh a couple of lbs less with say a Canon 24-105 EF on the nose and the variable ND adapter behind it.

    This is a handheld sample without the monopod or mic. Schneider 16-80mm f/2. Several shots at 80mm. Some good, some bad for stability but with a global shutter the shake is not so disturbing.

    Posting this here for two main reasons. Shows new "shorty" Cowboy Handles, good for a few finger and under ball grip. With what we know so far about Komodo and Global Shutter, handles like this are going to be pretty welcomed fun run and gun.

    And also to note, my lens adapter advice certainly is going to good use.
    Exactly the setup I would need ! :)

    I think it would be very wobbly like that. The stabilisation is only two points and with the normal muscular tremors it will be pretty shaky IMHO. The number of times i end up shooting like that because of circumstance and then not use the footage is higher than i would like. I've been messing with the sigma which has a loupe attachment so you end up with one hand on the camera, one hand pulling focus and the camera agains the eye. The 3 points of contact really do help. Holding a camera out like this is not ideal plus obviously there's no focusing going on. (unless there's some kind of electronic thing going on inside)

    It will be fun to see how to rig this thing for different uses though.

    cheers

    @Jarred, we know that Komodo is being tested intensively right now, and by some great talents (*Soderbergh), what have been the feedbacks so far?
    Especially in term of pure image quality / color science and the intercutting with "bigger" R3D cameras.
    I'm sure Graeme is still working his magic right now..

    With the global shutter ?
    Not sure at all. Sure the camera is very tiny and probably light and that definitely count BUT we've all seen handheld footage that wasn't wobbly at all, even on Hollywood Movies.
    (right now the only thing coming to my mind is Transformers... 4... ?... The one where there's an action scene in Hong Kong we can see in the BTS Bay shooting handheld with an Epic Dragon with the same kind of setup actually)

    They key thing is that Komodo features a global shutter so the rolling shutter and potential higher vibration artifacts from that would net unusable footage like if mounted to a car without decent stabilization, Komodo's footage will look good.

    If you are looking for more stability, well of course go with whatever solutions you want.


    I don't think I've stressed enough, but there isn't really anything like this camera at this price point on the market and not really anything like it at all when you add up all it's parts, which is why people are talking about it in the professional world (or at least why I'm getting asked questions about it).

    The size and sensor's features alone are worth the cost of admission here from my perspective, big time. And we don't know "everything yet".
