Be aware the 4 pins on the raised part of the connection level. Canon’s EF mount has simply three pins there whereas its new RF mount options 4 pins in what seems to be an similar association.

Throughout its latest announcement concerning the event of its new Hydrogen 2 digital camera, RED Founder Jim Jannard talked about Komodo, a reputation that didn’t ring any bells till just lately, when RED President Jarred Land made an attention-grabbing submit on the RED USER boards to elucidate not what Komodo is, however what it isn’t.

Within the discussion board submit Land narrows down what Komodo is by laying out what it is not. ‘I advised everybody that I wouldn’t reveal Komodo till it was prepared,’ he mentioned within the submit. ‘There [is] nonetheless is a bunch of time earlier than the primary batch begins delivery in the direction of the top of the 12 months and every part can and doubtless will change […] However within the spirit of discovery […] maybe I can nonetheless keep inside these guidelines and inform you what Komodo isn’t:’

  • It isn’t DSMC3
  • It isn’t a substitute for DSMC2
  • It isn’t 8k VV
  • It isn’t a Dragon or a Helium or a Gemini or a Monstro Sensor
  • It doesn’t have an HDMI port
  • It doesn’t use proprietary media
  • It isn’t a “module”
  • It isn’t underneath $5k, except you personal a Hydrogen.
  • It has no XLR ports
  • It doesn’t have a set lens
  • It’s physique doesn’t weight greater than 2 kilos.
  • It’s not bigger than four inches in any dimension.

He follows up the above listing with the picture on the high of this text. Whereas the picture doesn’t give a lot away, a sharp-eyed Newsshooter reader observed the mount seems to function the identical pin configuration that’s discovered on Canon’s RF lens mount.

RED has closely relied on the EF mount for its cameras previously, so it’s not a stretch to imagine it’s fascinated about Canons new, extra versatile mount as properly. Positive, among the attraction of Canon’s EF mount was the ubiquity of lenses made for it, a profit that doesn’t apply to the RF mount, however Canon provides a stable vary of first-party EF-RF adapters and the shorter flange focal distance (20mm) makes it doable to adapter practically any lens to the system.

Along with the lead picture displaying off the mount and pin association, Land additionally shared the above Instagram submit, which exhibits a microphone port, audio monitoring port and an LED with ‘CFast’ written subsequent to it. It’s unknown whether or not the ‘CFast’ label within the picture refers to a standalone module or doubtlessly a dual-media module that might add some redundancy and file to each Mini-Magazine and CFast concurrently, but it surely’ll be a welcomed addition both means.

Land wrapped up the discussion board submit saying ‘since Komodo is alive and respiratory and you’ll most likely see it pop up over the subsequent few weeks and months within the fingers of some very proficient folks banging on it to try to break it.’

We’d know what Komodo isn’t, however that also leaves loads of room for what it’s. It seems we’ll be discovering out quickly sufficient although.
