New accessories for the RED KOMODO from Wooden Camera and SmallHD

Two GTC sponsors Wooden Camera and SmallHD have recently announced new accessories for the RED KOMODO camera.


Wooden Camera accessories for RED KOMODO

Wooden Camera announced a full range of RED approved accessories compatible with the much anticipated RED KOMODO camera. These products are currently available for pre-order with an expected ship date in early August.

The accessory kit range includes Base, Advanced and Pro options and offer all new RED KOMODO specific accessories like the LW 15mm Baseplate (RED KOMODO) and Complete Top Mount Kit (RED KOMODO, ARCA Swiss). The Complete Top Mount Kit features a brand-new Top Mount that provides a centre ARCA Swiss-style dovetail clamping slot as well as 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for attaching accessories. The kit includes all three top-mount ARCA Swiss accessories: Top Handle, Monitor Hinge and Top Plate.

Each ARCA Swiss accessory is also available as a Top Mount Kit or separately. To mount each ARCA Swiss accessory to the camera, the Top Mount is required. This provides users the option to mix and match accessories to meet their production needs.

Designed specifically for the RED KOMODO, the Canon RF to PL Mount Pro (RED KOMODO) adapts PL lenses to the Canon RF mount on the camera.

The B-Box (RED KOMODO) attaches to the camera-right BP-9 battery slot and provides a breakout for the camera’s EXT connector. The Battery Slide Pro V-Mount or Gold Mount for RED KOMODO can be used simultaneously and a custom right-angle LEMO compatible connector allows for a neat cable run. Canon BP-9 batteries can also be attached in the camera-left slot while B-Box is used. Available ports include: R/S (3-pin Fischer), Timecode (5-pin LEMO), CTRL (4-pin LEMO), 5V (USB), and Genlock (BNC).

The camera can be powered with the Battery Slide Pro V-Mount or Gold Mount (RED KOMODO that attaches to the camera-left, BP-9 battery slot and powers the camera using a right-angle LEMO-compatible connector. When used with the Battery Slide Extension for Canon BP-955 (RED KOMODO), the user can hot-swap between Canon BP-955 batteries and the power plate by setting the plate flush with the top or bottom of the camera, loosening the thumbscrew and sliding it into the desired position.

Additional power accessories will be released in August. For a full range of Wooden Camera products for RED KOMODO visit:

SmallHD Focus Pro rugged on-camera monitoring and control

SmallHD has purpose-built the new line of Focus Pro monitors to pair with the RED® KOMODO™ camera. Available in both 5” LCD and OLED versions, each maintains SmallHD’s clarity, vivid colour detail and dynamic touchscreen camera control while balancing between durability and lightweight design.

Focus Pro unleashes the full potential of KOMODO with its intuitive touchscreen menu control. Connected via the 5-pin locking USB port, RCP functionality enables unfettered access to camera operations and project settings such as recording format, resolution, frame rate, shutter speed, aperture adjustment, autofocus, output tone map, highlight roll-off, 3D LUTs, Run/Stop and more.

Weighing just 9.6oz, Focus Pro is a sleek companion for KOMODO's compact, lightweight body. SmallHD’s sturdy, milled aluminum chassis is ready to withstand rigorous operation, even on the fly. The three ¼”-20 mounting points make it easy to secure to a rig, and the new Focus Pro Hinge Mount (sold separately) gives KOMODO users the flexibility to tilt the monitor for optimal viewing.

The new Focus Pro offers a choice of 720p LCD or 1080p OLED solutions, each with a radiant 5-inch display with sharp resolution and accurate image control. The LCD is known for its 800 Nits bright daylight visibility while the OLED offers the rich colour saturation and viewing angle that many users demand. The 3G-SDI input provides real-time monitoring, and retracting menus offer an unobstructed field of view, revealing exactly what KOMODO sees.

Focus Pro offers several power advantages. Low power consumption allows running without excessive swapping. An improved battery mount design provides better ergonomics and a stronger, more secure attachment for all compatible L Series-type batteries. Users will also appreciate the monitors’ locking 2-pin power input to feed directly from KOMODO.

SmallHD offers Focus Pro in four options: MON-FOCUS-PRO and MON-FOCUS-PRO-OLED include the monitor, glass screen protector and a cleaning cloth. Kits are also available with a RED DSMC2 Camera Control Licence and a 36" Camera Control Cable. The Camera Control licence for KOMODO may also be purchased separately as soon as September 2020.

Focus Pro LCD is available for pre-order and will ship in August, while OLED versions are slated for September 2020.
