    Thanks Bill. I gave it a try. Right next to the camera, or on top of the camera I get around -20dBm. About 1m away I get around -40dBm and as I move further, this decreases more. Normal antenna. I...

    Thanks Bill. I had no luck with the original antenna when my Android phone was mounted on my gimbal about 35cm from the camera, above the camera. But I will do some testing in different orientations....

    Just for fun. Not shot on Red I'm afraid, there was no time for that. Nothing wrong with a GoPro in certain situations. Please like, comment, etc if you enjoyed it.

    Hi Haven. I like your thinking, but I'm not sure if there are any additional electronics between the battery plate and the monitor. I don't think it matters to connect both pins at the same time (or...

    Maybe there is a way to enable this, otherwise perhaps Red can add it in a firmware update. When using the buttons on the camera to adjust the settings, there is no feedback on the SDI monitor - it...
