    This is 100% incorrect FYI. And it's clearer when you see the lenses cracked open. The actually information is the Milvus line and CP.3 line very much are "the same", that is where that lineup...

    Easiest way to check this is within REDCINE-X PRO, right click a clip to view metadata and look for "ISO Cal". ISO Cal 2 is the 1 stop under the hood improvement which better matches light meters.

    DSMC1 is about 60Wh. On a fairly common 150Wh battery you would get around 2.5 hours of runtime. The camera typically will shutdown when the battery gets to about <= 5% power on the brick, so more...

    It's been a few years since I've seen one, but whatever the diameter of the main ring is, I can't recall if it was 150mm or like 138mm, you would ideally want that ring to a 80mm step down ring.

    Certainly looks like it. It also could be an abyssal void to stare into your soul, but going with the more likely answer.
