    We improved and reinforced the lock latch and also added reverse pressure retention springs to each battery bay to keep everything nice and tight.

    In the corporate world that sort of honest statement is a rare beast indeed. While Arri somewhat emulates Apples approach to innovation the downside is you may have to wait many years to have access to those shiny new toys.

    And when we made Fincher's camera with all the built in wireless " Arri would never do such a silly thing. " until they did.

    And you know the whole Arri campaign " 2k is enough "..... until it wasn't .

    Thank you Jarred for these kind of posts. Appreciate the transparency, the no bullshit, the acknowledgment of competitor's strengths and the humility to recognize that pretending to know the future means you're not always right... ARRI is indeed great at what they do, but I'm very glad there are rebels out there who keep pushing for more, who pretend to know where to push, which gives them the willingness and confidence to take the leap and go for it. The world would be a better place if most of us weren't so afraid of failing wouldn't it?...

    I love the RF mount choice, that global shutter (hell yes !!), the lower power requirements / smaller batteries, PDAF (praying one day it'll be as good as Canon's), the tiny body, and the fact that there is no skull on it ha!

    I have to give some appreciation here. This attention to performance (even in the under $10k price range) is what separates RED from most (maybe all) of the camera companies out there.

    This is perhaps the most intriguing camera I can think of in the last decade. A cinema camera that fully matches the new "mobile" tech reality we live in.

    Hope RED continues to take the time they think is needed. I'm really rooting for Komodo.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer. Unbelievable that you made a change at this stage to accommodate such an extremely high-end edge case like that. You were not kidding when you said you were making a proper camera.

    As much as I am impatient as everyone else, posts like these let me understand that you are not just marketing and teasing with all your instagram posts. You are actually testing, and letting us be part of it. Thank you.

    At this moment MFT ( https://www.lensadaptor.com/ ) is testing an adapter for Fujinon MK zoom lenses to be used with Lumix S cameras. Canon R has the same flange distance 20mm so i hope for an adapter to use Fujinon Mk's on RED Komodo... Killer combo....
