    Have any of these started shipping? Thinking of going to way of Wooden Camera/Blueshape or Element Technica plate. Before I do would be nice to know if it is just around the corner or months away.

    Stealth Weapon-MG and EPIC-W with some vintage Contax-Zeiss and Leica-R goodness and some Canon and Nikon modern glass just for good measure.

    The bricks work only half well with the Vlock module. It has a limited Dtap port and as the Bricks have no power out you are kind of short in power if you ask me. Better get some batteries with more power outs.

    I'm planning on putting the Wooden Camera rotating top handle on my Scarlet-W when it arrives. In addition to being rotatable, it also has a user friendly quick release, which ought to make transporting the camera mostly shoot ready pretty easy.

    I'm using the top handle while filming so I can't use it rotated. And I have the old top handle from my Epic which I can use, but the camera becomes too high and there's no room for a touchscreen attached to the camera. I hate this thing with the batteries. I've been waiting six months for the WC mount and now I'm seeing users having a lot of issues. I'm beginning to feel that I'm forced to buy totally new batteries because of this and it's so frustrating the problem even exists. Why couldn't Red just design this mount to work like the WC mount, with a lower mounting option so that Red bricks align with the camera body. I don't want to deal with WC anymore but I have no other choice if I'm gonna be able to use the top handle provided with my Weapon. Buying three new batteries might A) not fit the case I have for the camera and B) will cost me much more than just a mount that works.

    Getting really tired over all of this.
