    Newsshooter just covered this highly interesting piece of gear:

    https://www.newsshooter.com/2018/08/...as-birtv-2018/




    It appears to be a 0.3 filter when on with a 11-14 stop range (unclear), then when you don't need it, you slide out the electronic ND tray.

    The price point is very alluring and sounds like it's coming 2018 for PL Mount.

    I sincerely hope they tie this into the RED SDK for internal camera control and they add a screen on the side of the wheel if possible to show the current strength of the ND if they don't get the SDK to read it out on screen like the Motion Mount.

    This appears to be similar tech to Panavisions recent electronic ND, so we'll have to wait and see if there are any shutter speed considerations.

    Whatever they do, make sure it covers generoursly over the RED 8K VV format size. They have it here with Monstro, but it appear the circular portion of the rear of the PL mount might be occluding the corners a bit, which will possible add to vignetting on some lenses. Hopefully they'll sort that out, I don't see a reason for it to be there or to be circular like that, likely a prototype thing.

    By the look of it seems that it could even be used with DSMC1 cameras, which immediately becomes very alluring to me!

    Literally camcorders had internal ND filters first......

    Arri doesn't have electronic NDs btw. This is much more "Panavision/Lee Style".

    Perhaps another good idea to built into the future DSMC3 lineup.

    This is a much better design than the Revolva IMO.
    Very intriguing. Can't wait until the first units are out in the wild with test reviews.

    RU Groupbuy maybe :-)

    Played with it quickly at BIRTV last week. Was still an early proto yes, with a little dial without clicks, lock, engraving or even precise adjustment yet...
    On my quick test the filter was leaning toward a heavy blue tint when darkened compared to closing the iris and could not really check for any aberration / loss of resolution but it is indeed a very promising product... felt like having a manually adjustable motion mount with the added option of quickly going to clear filter when moving to interior if needed...

    Between this and Kippertie's REVOLVA smart wheel there are suddenly plenty of great internal ND options for RED 'documentary' filmmakers :-)
