    We had one of the captive screws on our DSMC2 4.7" monitor strip and I'm looking for a replacement. Called the Red store and they said the just sold the last ones they had last week. Any ideas on where to find replacements?

    I would guess if you contact red support directly they can get you a replacement. I was able to get 3/8 mounting plate hardware no problem.

    That is a piss poor excuse given by the OEM and a premier camera manufacturer. Can't keep a decent inventory of expendables.

    Those screws are M4 captive type. I think 5 ~ 6 mm in length. (At least that's what says on RED's website. When you get there click on the "Specs" tab).

    Here try these guys, perhaps this kit might have what you were looking for. And if you have Amazon Prime. you'd get them in a day or so.

    Good luck.

    I would think that the RED Store could reach out to HQ to get the ordered fulfilled overnight even if they were out of stock at the store.

    I've had some wacky screw needs once or twice.
