    Any updates on these shipping? I know Weapons aren't shipping yet, but it would be nice to already have this in hand when the weapon arrives.

    Which of course is user error. And we all mistakes. But you would be incredibly shocked at the number of people who blow shit up and then proceed to call RED and try and convince us to fix their busted 3rd party stuff like it was our fault. Or when they do it on set and it brings down the entire production they point to our camera and then go hide on the roof.

    But lets see how it goes... maybe the world has learned. I know the quality of the P-tap ports on pro devices is alot better now than it was 10 years ago so lets give it a chance.
    Just for clarity's sake... ET isn't considered 3rd party.... right?

    EDIT: A 2 1/2 party then?

    NEW EDIT: I'm going with 2nd party.

    Is the DC input on the Weapon the same as that on the Epic Dragon?
