Red #1974 arrived in Paris on friday !
Got my tracking number on tuesday afternoon, 1 day later it was in Paris, 1 day for the customs, and delivery the next day. That was quick.
Everything is fine so far, except for the usual known bugs (build 15 really doesn't like trees :)).
All the accessories look great. The handles work fine too, they don't slip (at least not yet), and I'd recommend the Red handle mount if you plan to use them often for handheld work.
The shoulder dovetail locks firmly in place too. Haven't tried it on a tripod yet.
The Red craddle is nice, but very heavy, I'll probably wait to see what ET comes up with.
For handheld work, the small Red arm that comes with the LCD is a bit too short if you don't have the side handles. I wasn't able to get it low and far enough from my eyes to feel comfortable. I had one universal mount left, so I put the Red arm on there, and it seems to work.
The wingnuts work fine, but look quite fragile. It would be nice to have an option for aluminium (or maybe steel) wingnuts, instead of plastic.
Thanks to all the Red team for your hard work. This camera really IS what I've always dreamt of.
Ok, so now that I have my camera, Jim, feel free to release Build 16 at your earliest convenience . I have a tungsten bluescreen shot coming up in a week.
