    Thanks for that!
    Another one : as we order, the cables aren't made for the shorter necessity of the setup. The thumbwheel cable is 1m long for example. Is it possible to have shorter cables when it ships even if we order today with the standard length? Motor calbe could be as short as 20cm (right angle to straight) instead of 60cm for example.

    So excited about this (and +1 on the shorter cables)... @Kris we pre-ordered 2x Latitude modules as well as just bought the thumbwheel and pre-ordered the Sidekick as soon as the email came through (we got one direct from you guys)... I don't think we ever saw a 10% discount on anything we ordered, am I missing something?
    Cheers,

    What lens motors do this work with? I got word that you can control real cine-lenses with fool control through this, but the motor that's sold in the kit with latitude is a bit over my budget at the moment.

    970 pounds is with cables I think.

    i dont know about that because its asking me to add cables for 70 pounds each.
    i still cant figure out if this works with other handsets then rt motions, i need something that will work with whatever shows up on set.

The WiFi capability is perfect in implementation - it's just a range issue. I don't think this is something RED needs to specifically focus on, they've opened up the capability and it works flawless within the range limitations, which I'm more than happy to accept and let them focus on other camera performance and ergonomic issues.

    I'm hoping RT Latitude gets us some more rock solid Wifi performance. Likely see a lot of other innovations in this area too.
    Hello Kris,

    It seems that the Weapon Wifi hasn't a great range. I didn't test it yet but I bet if your Sidekick module has it it would perform better with an appropriate antenna.
