Hey can someone explain to me exactly WHY the side handle on its own will not be sufficient to start controlling the camera? Right now, from the factory, I have virtually a clean feed, with the center cross hairs and timecode in lower right corner. Is there not a menu button on the side handle? Or do I have to go into the menu first to tell the Scarlet there's a side handle connected, and once that's done, I'm golden. (that is until I flash the firmware again?)
I wouldn't mind having a redmote, but with the rear-attached battery, I suppose I would have to remove the battery adapter plate in order to attach and charge it, correcto? What is its effective and reliable range?
