    Trying to figure out the Redcode RAW bitrates based on settings. Maybe I missed some details in the thread. Here's what I figure at the moment:

    - Uncompressed 6K 17:9 16-bit 24 fps is 795 MB/s
    - Phil's sample footage in HQ 6K 17:9 16-bit is 264.38 MB/s (let's say 265MB/s), which makes almost exactly 3:1
    - On a 1TB CFast card formatted to be about 930GB, that's 59.89 mins (let's say 60 min)
    - If MQ gets you 70 mins, then the ratio would be 3.5:1, which doesn't make sense.

    I would think that MQ would be like 6:1 and LQ like 12:1

    Any data to support/refute this?

    Yeah the MQ didn't make sense to me either. I'm hoping for the same:

    HQ = 3:1
    MQ = 6:1
    LQ = 10:1

    When you open Komodo raw files on RCX does it say HQ,MQ or Redcode compression rates?

    Thanks Phil..Im planning to buy Komodo and sure i would like to use CFast cards on all the platforms that i can.

    Do you guys think Komodo will have a 3rd party Flushed V-Mount Battery adapter attached to the Sony Dual lock system so that it looks as part of the brain camera and not detached as shown on Phil's pictures???

    That would be dope with the Mini Red Bricks and the GDU batteries...

    Cheers RED Fam!!!

    Cant wait for my Komodo to come...

    The one Phil showed is much more versatile, but I can see how something flush with the body may appeal for a more compact setup.
    Perhaps someone will make it happen.

    Does anyone have the power draw specs on komodo? How many watts per hour on standby vs recording?

    *snicker* Don't ask me about what I"m using in the photos below. Yet.

    I've been tested lots of gear now for about the last 90 days, gah I can't believe that, but as is the way of the pandemic. Some stuff I can show, some I cannot. This week a few more announcements will allow for breaking of the embargo. Next week too!

    As of this second I haven't noticed a truly discernible power draw difference between rolling and not. If it is there, it's slight. A 98Wh batter gets you about 4 hours of runtime. Bare in mind this is before Stormtroopers and Vaders enter the fray.


    Two quickies tonight.

    I am indeed testing and essentially announcing the SmallHD Focus SDI Pro. Was allowed to finally chat about it publicly. It is similar to the current Focus lineup, but has a couple MAJOR differences that will be relevant to those who ride on the backs of Komodos:




    I've been also further exploring getting sound into this little bad boy. Today's exercise in creative rigging was the Sonosax M2D2, which is a tidy and powerful pream/mixer. No recording features, so similar in some ways to the Beachtek stuff, but a significantly upgrade in quality and features. The audio in my first sample clip was fed through the line out of a Sound Devices Mix-Pre 10 II. I've tested the Internal Mic as well as general on board microphones. Some of those could use a decent clean boost in gain, Komodo does that, but a dedicated one allows for far more freedom.




    Outside of that, I hope to show the breakout I/O box shortly. It allows for jamming and sending of Timecode and other good things.

    Oh, and in the above two workflows I'm exploring off the beaten path anamorphic setups. Using the SmallHD to Desqueeze to monitor as well as a frame guide as I'm using the full 6K 17:9 image from Komodo. Useful to roll this way for reframing.
