    Since the Komodo thread is 300 pages long, I thought we could aggregate all of the known specs into one simple thread. I don't have time to dig through all 300 pages of the original post, so if anyone has some free time today to gather the data from all of the updates then that'd be awesome. From Jarred's very first post:


    - It is not DSMC3
    - It is not a replacement for DSMC2
    - It is not 8k VV
    - It is not a Dragon or a Helium or a Gemini or a Monstro Sensor
    - It does not have an HDMI port
    - It does not use proprietary media
    - It is not a “module”
    - It is not under $5k, unless you own a Hydrogen.
    - It has no XLR ports
    - It does not have a fixed lens
    - It’s body does not weight more than 2 pounds.
    - It is not larger than 4 inches in any dimension.

    Here you go. That thread is in fact tough to get through for sure to find some good info, but as of November 2019, here's what we know.

    Komodo Specs (as of 11/16/2019):
    - What's Komodo? A RED Compact Utility Camera in a small Cube-Cam form factor ready to pickup and shoot. Just add batteries, lens, media, and likely a display.
    - Sensor Technology = New 6K Sensor that features Global Shutter and Rolling Shutter Modes as well as Phase Detect Auto Focus
    - Max FPS = 6K FF @ 40fps, 6K WS @50fps. We can guestimate at 5K and 4K fps, but fps might change as they refine things ever so so slightly
    - Anamorphic Support = Appears so
    - Codec Support = Internal Compressed RAW = REDCODE RAW, unknown if other codecs are supported as of now
    - Lens Mount = Integrated Canon RF Mount (easy to adapt to nearly anything)
    - Media Type = CFast 2.0 (body features a media slot compartment w/ door)
    - Power Options = Dual Slot Canon BP Style Batteries (various capacities) w/ hot swap and ability to run off one battery + DC IN (LEMO) - Lower Power Draw than DSMC2 for sure
    - Camera Control = Integrated Touch Screen, On Camera Buttons, Some sort of Smartphone Interface, WiFi Control, EXT Port
    - Monitoring = Top Side Pogo Cableless Display Tech, 4K 6G or 12G SDI Out
    - Audio = Mic In 3.5mm jack, Headphone Jack, Internal Scratch Mic
    - Camera Cooling = It appears there's an internal heat sink and fan w/ vent
    - Form Factor = < 4x4x4" and built like a tank IMO
    - Body Weight = < 2lbs
    - Body Contruction = Appears to be Magnesium/Aluminum Alloy
    - Buttons/Indicators = On/Off Switch, Power/Status Indicator, Record Button, Tally Light, Menu, Menu Selection Up/Down, Funtion Set, Playback (probably toggle), 2X Eject Buttons for Batteries, Media Compartment Open
    - Wireless Camera Inteface/Control = WiFi w/ Antenna
    - Mobile Phone Support = Android and IOS
    - Rigging = 1/4"-20 around Pogo, 4X M4 around front of camera, 1X M3 for focus hook, general base plate form factor of DSMC2-style bodies
    - Price Point = sub $5,000 USD for Hydrogen One Owners, normal MSRP is a mystery for now
    - Camera Release Date = 2020, likely on the earlier side of things
    * Might be available in multiple colors based on Jarred's rather favorable response to your Photoshop'n, no Michael Bay FU Nike Green for you however


    That's the bulk of it that's been released thus far. Certainly key things being left out still, some more obvious than others.
