    Hi all,

    Is there any way to use Arri's 4-pin Hirose trigger cable with a RED DSMC2 camera? Does any company make an adapter for this? Specifically interested in this.

    Thanks!

    The Hirose 4-pins are really meant for Sony cameras (F55 etc). The Arri LBS-2 also comes with the original Arri R/S 3-pin Fischer connector (link), which would make sense investment-wise if you're ever gonna throw an Alexa on your shoulder.

    If you have the Red Tactical Top Plate, Arri DSMC2 Top Plate, WC Easy Top Plate or WC D-Box, these all include 3-pin Fischers ports that will accept the signal from these grips. If you don't have any of these, and want to use the 4-pin Lemo SYNC port on your body/expander, then you got to use a 3rd party circuit to adapt between the technologies.
