    Great thanks for the reply Phil!!! curious if the boards can be updated for a reasonable price? And would there be any benefit to doing so other than ipp2 monitoring in camera? better processing perhaps?

    Thanks

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think you can upgrade the boards for ~$5K and you will get IPP2 in camera and slightly lower compression ratios (at least I think this is the case for my Weapon Mg). What I have not been able to establish is whether the "DSMC2.5" upgrade is necessary to stay in the running for future updates, but in general Red has been pretty generous about giving older cameras upgrade paths.

    I would really like to know the spec on Komodo before pulling the trigger on the upgrade which seems like a great deal but the unknown is really annoying. Duel iso is the main feature i would live to have

    18-35 is looking clear from 22/23mm onwards from my brief test.

    So far the firmware seems solid, a little bit more magic in the image : ) First shoot on tonight - will update if any issues appear.
