    New cameras are getting the OLPF fix, but the transition was very recent and depending on when your camera was allocated, may or may not have it. If you don't have it, email OLPF@RED.COM with your shipping info, camera serial number, etc.. They will put you in the queue. That black sharpie is a bad idea.

    will RED install this for us in our EPIC-M cams when they are returned for the heat sink upgrade?

    Just confirming I have the round bent corner as shown above. However my "guard" appears to be not matte black but of the similar material as the OPLF .

    Update arhhh...... this is the reflection of the sensor onto the guard . So it appears I do have it. camera no 1010

    They probably will Meryem, but who knows when that upgrade will happen... I'm guessing at the point when they're done with all the Stage3/3.5 cameras coming in so they don't have to juggle another thousand or two people sending in cameras until they're ready.

    RED will mail you the port bushings (and instructions) for free and it's really simple to put in, you do have to be careful around the sensor/OLPF though. I'd be happy to help if you want. :)

    Excuse my ingnorance, but what is olpf bushing? I assume olpf stands for: Optica Low Pass Filter, but what is the busshing? What is it for? When was it adressed?

    Thanks very much.

    The interior sides of the mount chamber in front of the OLPF has shiny metallic finish that causes flare that many have found disturbing. RED has heard the customers and released the "Flare Gard". If you look inside your camera's mount chamber and it looks like in the picture I have posted (the flare guard is the matte black sides marked by the green lines and held in place with the bent black metal) - you are already taken care of. If, however, these walls have still shiny metallic finish - please contact your bomb rep who will discuss with you the options (either having one temp shipped to you, or having one fixed at RED next time your camera "calls home")...
