    Id be very excited to see Red come out with a new PL motion mount.

    -no stop loss (unless desired of course)
    -no stange artifacting
    -perfectly neutral ND in incremental stops smaller than standard .3,.6 etc

    I would pay $$$$ for this.

    Its the only thing Arri has on Red right now IMO

    Are you referring to the mechanical internal NDs on the Arri, just out of curiousity?

    As has been discussed elsewhere, I think there's potentially an opportunity to add servo-controlled mechanical NDs to a PL mount, but I'm no flange depth expert

    +1 I hate when i have to shoot Arri for many reasons, but the internal ND is a god sent. The Motion Mount introduces to many artifacts and frame rate limitations.

    Add servo motors and camera interface so you can map the servo motors to buttons and you'd be onto a winner.

    I never understood why RED didn't introduce internal NDs with DSMC2 I think was a stupid design mistake like the v-mount battery position (Which Wooden Camera fixed with their plate)

    If you look though the sensor you can see a lot of wasted space there that could had been easily introduce a mechanical ND filter.

    RED is the only highend camera manufacture that miss the boat. Canon C700, Sony F55, Panasonic Varicam, Arri Alexa Mini Have internal NDs for God sake even Ursa Mini have it now

    Yes Phil indeed! :)

    Its a no brainer and will make a shit ton of $$$$ bc every pro will buy it. Not sure what the hold up is. I feel like red has pumped the brakes on new innovative modules etc.

    Personally I like the Motion Mount as long as you understand the way it works and what it can and cant do.
    The mini is cool and internal ND is great but you have plenty of restrictions with that setup, such as the increments of filtration.
    Sure you can go with no ND but then it jumps to a .6 then 1.2 and then 2.1 whereas my MM is set to 1/10th stop increments to really finetune. You might think that is overkill but when you go back to .3 increments you really miss the 1/10th advantage.
    MM is not for everything and I too would love an updated version but for now its an amazing little unit.
