    Some will, simply based on Red's track record for image quality. And let's be serious; Jarred won't let that camera out into the wild before it's able to deliver on what he's already promised.

    I hope Red can keep up with demand for these little beasts... I have a feeling that the Komodo will end up being almost as popular as Black Magic's Pocket 4K was at launch.

Modern smartphones have perhaps the best screens available and can be had in sizes large enough to pull focus from.

As they are software based any feature one desires can be added. And to top that off they can work wirelessly. I can’t think of any dedicated monitor that can come close. Smartphone is by far my preferred monitoring option.
    This makes a ton of sense for me, too, using smartphone as primary connection.

    One challenge for going this route though, would be when taking the camera, or more accurately, the phone, into harsh environments. I'll take my DSMC2 out in really nasty winter weather, and sure, it goes through batteries a bit quicker than I like, but everything works pretty well, including the touch monitor. If I pull my phone out, to use for drone work or because I've been sitting in a blind all day and need to do some email, the thing dies really quickly. They just aren't very protected even in a decent phone case. Granted I haven't tried one of the cases with the additional battery. But, in those sorts of rough conditions, I think I'd go with the setup as seen in the snowy shots from the top of the chair lift a ways back in this thread. Simple monitor with it's own battery or connected to the camera for power, and power fed to the camera from a battery inside my coat. That seems like the way to go.

    I'm sure there will be a Red monitor for Komodo at some point, and I'm hoping the phone cradle will also charge the phone.

    I hope that as well. Although my iPhone 11Pro is waiting to be used with Komodo, a dedicated (and especially cable-free) RED monitor solution would be very welcome. I'm thinking the size of Komodo's width that once not in use can be flipped down and create some sort of protection for the integrated top display. If I'm not mistaken Phil Holland mentioned this idea too..

    Anyone care to speculate on the EXT port on the back? Looks to be a bigger connector than Lemo 00b so I'm assuming it will combine Timecode, Trigger and Genlock all in a more durable connector that makes sense for a camera like this.
    Thoughts?
