    IMHO, the crux of the biscuit is the fundamentally flawed 12G SDI spec. It's easy to call out RED for choosing it, but what was the better option when they were finalizing the design for Komodo?...

    FWIW, there were valid choices made along the way in developing the Komodo platform that represent the kind of compromises inherent in engineering a sophisticated device. Now mix in some marketing...

    Pulling focus for 4K or higher deliverables, on a 1080 7" monitor, is challenging on any >4K camera I've used. Just comparing what you see on the 1:1 punch in vs scaling the full image will make that...

    Highly unlikely. Moreover, even if a theoretical dummy battery plate had electronics to eat ESD, it's not the only potential ESD path.

    Context

    Without testing, I cannot empirically state that powering the Komodo/SDI monitor/other AKS from the same source is a bulletproof solution. That said, using a common power source should eliminate one...

    They seem to be built well, but no personal knowledge of longer term dependability. The remote phosphor tech used in the BBS Area 48 fixtures creates exceptionally flat spectral output. They have...

    If issues with ESD/fried boards is the only thing you care about, then $1,100 is expensive insurance. That said, being able to feed a clean 12G signal to a live switch/outboard recorder/video...

    Nils nailed it.

    FWIW, you can find negative comments about any lens set - and trashing RED is practically an Olympic sport.

    It's worth noting that RED made the lens mounting options on DSMC2 accurate and robust - as one should expect on a professional camera. All the consistency issues for multiple units that JB notes can...

    Higher bandwidth connections are needed to support modern video signals. The BNC/Coax topology for SDI is reasonably reliable for 1.5 or 3G signals. Props to the engineers who figured out how to cram...

    Of the stills targeted primes, I'm most familiar with Canon and Sigma. Only the widest angles, <20mm, have compromised corners @8KHD. FWIW, I've been able to get around that by slightly reducing the...

    IMO, RG59 for 12G is a fail, even for short runs. FWIW, I am dubious about RG6 other than short jumpers.
    RG7 is appropriate for 12G. There's even RG11 for longer runs if you're determined to stay on...
