    We have the Monstro and a lot of time we are using it at 6K. I know it's a shame.

    How about make new boards for every camera? From the RED One on, none of those are made of “unobtainium” and can’t be rebuilt. There’s just newer versions of the pieces that made those parts, RED has all the code to put on the processor chips and what voltages and capacitor types to use, just make new service boards and even if the charge is $1,500 for a single board, that’s perfectly fine compared to putting a perfectly good 4K/4.5K/5K/6K/8K sensor to rest well before its time. It would be too much to ask RED to make replacement sensors although they would be the only ones who could do it and since they have the MX and 6K Dragon streamlined at this point, it’s strange that we’re not seeing potentially lower cost RED cameras using those old but still very relevant sensors. Granted, RED does seem to be on the move to provide more expansion with the recent move to add CFast to Komodo and authorizing the new third-party 2TB drive for DSMC2 cameras so perhaps DSMC2 will see more of these later in life requests we’re clamoring for with pre-DSMC2 cameras.

    Exactly.

    A Red 6K Ranger is the way to go, with no compromise 2x anamorphic accommodation.
