|Word 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 current announcement relating to the event of its new Hydrogen 2 digicam, RED Founder Jim Jannard talked about Komodo, a reputation that didn’t ring any bells till lately, when RED President Jarred Land made an attention-grabbing publish on the RED USER boards to clarify not what Komodo is, however what it isn’t.
Within the discussion board publish Land narrows down what Komodo is by laying out what it is not. ‘I instructed everybody that I wouldn’t reveal Komodo till it was prepared,’ he mentioned within the publish. ‘There [is] nonetheless is a bunch of time earlier than the primary batch begins delivery in direction of the tip of the yr and the whole lot can and possibly will change […] However within the spirit of discovery […] maybe I can nonetheless keep inside these guidelines and inform you what Komodo isn’t:’

He follows up the above record with the picture on the prime of this text. Whereas the picture doesn’t give a lot away, a sharp-eyed Newsshooter reader observed the mount seems to characteristic the identical pin configuration that’s discovered on Canon’s RF lens mount.
RED has closely relied on the EF mount for its cameras up to now, so it’s not a stretch to imagine it’s involved in Canons new, extra versatile mount as properly. Positive, among the enchantment 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 strong vary of first-party EF-RF adapters and the shorter flange focal distance (20mm) makes it potential 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 publish, 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 probably a dual-media module that would add some redundancy and document to each Mini-Magazine and CFast concurrently, however it’ll be a welcomed addition both manner.
Land wrapped up the discussion board publish saying ‘since Komodo is alive and respiration and you’ll most likely see it pop up over the subsequent few weeks and months within the palms 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.
