    Just saw this on FB.

    Looks like SmallHD has indeed integrated Camera Control via the Cine 7 for RED DSMC2 cameras.

    *edit, it's on YouTube now:

    From what I gather on the product page new units come with RED Camera Control bundle (limited time) and if you have an older unit a hardware upgrade is required. I need to double check on that.

    It appears it's using one SDI and the CTRL connection, I imagine it works with HDMI as well?

    Whatever the case, it's an 1800 nit 7" display that can control your camera.

    You already have a camera that can record proxies :)

    But, yeah, I see what you're saying.

    Not on DSMC1, which I would hope this also works with (presuming its using the same connector/protocol). Could've bridged the gap, y'know.

    How much is it?

    EDIT: Just watched the video (it uses SDI+lemo, not RED's EVF/LCD cable). Should it not work with DSMC1 anyway?

    Does a Control splitter exist to be able to use the RTmotion sidekick with the cine7 ?

    It's only for DSMC2 (I don't know if it's even only for unified bodies...?)

    Yeah, I just saw that. Definitely curious why it would be limited to that though.

    Looks Interesting, a 1800 nits monitor that you can use outside in Day light on your DSMC2 and the same monitor can use it in any other camera or as director monitor.

    1800 usd...nice!

    Any Group Buy?

    Haha yeah I know. But I like the idea of placing backup proxies on another drive. And leaving space on Mini-Mag just for R3Ds.

    This is very interesting to see. But I get lots of questions.
    - How do you see the temperature or how much is left of your SSD or battery? I guess you can output the standard Red menus, but then you will have them both at the same time.
    - I wonder how many settings it supports. What do you do when they do not support some settings, I guess use the joystick to go through the Red menus, that sounds slow.

    For us it is a problem that they use the Ctrl port, since our RT Motion lens control uses this one.

    Interesting though, a brighter monitor would be much needed.

    I'd like to know the answer to those questions too.
