Ahh what a bummer, would have been "great" to see the actual crash ;)
Ugh. That breaks my heart. Having worked with that same pilot (I think) before a bunch of times, It's just hard to believe. He was always extremely cautious, and safety (of both people and gear) was paramount. $hit happens, and gear fails, I suppose.
One thing I noticed is, now that I have the redmote, it seems like I don't need the side handle any more. I took it off. Redmote has the same buttons and stuff. And now, the button for Magnify is over to the camera-left side of the camera, closer to the lens... a little easier to press. The User 1 & 2 buttons are apparently not assignable yet, but Deanan told me he was probably going to make those assignable soon.
Not, of course, that anybody should expect the latter (ever) or take that a implication that Red is in the business of freely replacing cameras... but if Jim made this one-time gesture, that's _AWESOME_.
