    Plus make the link adapter more reasonably priced. $395 to get wired USB as a backup option if the SDI dies is a bit steep.

    I would think the simplest solution would be to offer to downgrade the board to 3G-SDI. Many people are using isolators to protect the SDI, and most of these only transmit 1080p anyhow.

    Absolutely. This is a very common problem. I just saw another post by someone with a blown SDI on the Komodo Uers FB group, and noted that Red repaired it for free as a "one time concession". I guess...

    Red told me you can hot swap BPs without following the procedure. To be honest, I still don't see how changing the battery on a monitor can blow the SDI, since a ground loop can't be formed this way,...

    The files are segmented. They are not the same. When the clip goes over 4GB, the camera starts a new file. Your video editor should see them as one clip.

    You can click on attachments below when creating a message but it limits jpegs to something like 620x280 and they don't display inline. Maybe one day we will get a forum update :)

    Thanks Bill. I gave it a try. Right next to the camera, or on top of the camera I get around -20dBm. About 1m away I get around -40dBm and as I move further, this decreases more. Normal antenna. I...

    Thanks Bill. I had no luck with the original antenna when my Android phone was mounted on my gimbal about 35cm from the camera, above the camera. But I will do some testing in different orientations....

    Just for fun. Not shot on Red I'm afraid, there was no time for that. Nothing wrong with a GoPro in certain situations. Please like, comment, etc if you enjoyed it.

    Hi Haven. I like your thinking, but I'm not sure if there are any additional electronics between the battery plate and the monitor. I don't think it matters to connect both pins at the same time (or...

    Hey Phil. I think your backfocus was out - the image you posted looks pixellated :)

    I'm also really interested to hear how backfocus can influence sharpness (other than not being in focus). On a...

    Maybe there is a way to enable this, otherwise perhaps Red can add it in a firmware update. When using the buttons on the camera to adjust the settings, there is no feedback on the SDI monitor - it...
