    Speaking of... you got any CAD renderings of a RED Tripod to show us, Jim?

    I don't think Red will tackel follow focus for a while.

    I would gladly welcome a Red Dolly. There isn't much in between (in terms of quality track-based dollies) from a doorway until you then hit a Fisher.

    Any ETA for a working prototype sitting on a camera body with

    No info equals no matt box IMHO.
    Go on, show me I'm wrong, I dare ya.

    True, but remember this time last year. There were a few CAD renderings of another RED product released...

    I don't think Mezmo meant it was a fake, but rather that it wasn't coming any time soon.

    I don't think the matte box exists in tangible form yet. I think this post is Jim's way of getting design feedback. They learned their lesson from tooling up on the Production Pack without getting enough feedback and ended up eating it in sunk costs.

    I agree Shawn. All I was saying is a lot can happen in a short amount of time. And somehow, I don't think a MatteBox takes as long as a 4K Camera to get on the market.

    Dear Santa -

    If it's possible, I would like to buy the SN #6 and #7 Red matte boxes to go with the soon to be "reincarnated" Elvis and Mr. Bond.

    That would make me very, very happy.

    Please tell all the elves I appreciate their hard work and dedication.

    Very Sexy, I Like I Like.

    Two notes/ideas because you listen so well.

    1. I think the upper 15mm mount MIGHT NOT will interfere with many zoom lenses like my 25-250 HR. If the sliding rods on the side of your matte box are sucked-up tight, then the mount will be in front of the lens! I have been using the Chroziel (It covers the HR) and the whole thing rides in front of the lens. In fact I use their 19mm to 15mm mini rod adapter. It works well. So just make sure it can do that.

    2. I had a thought it would be brilliant for the lens ring to be varriable!!!! I hate the matte box vs. lens dimater hell game. How many bellows do I need to buy??? Here is my idea: Make one that is adjustable and works like a lens appiture with a set screw?... I love it.

    My 2 cents
    Rich
