New accessories are ready to add significant operational capabilities specific for new camera.

Wooden Camera is excited to announce 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 Kits range from Base, Advanced, and Pro and include 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 center 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 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 (3pin Fischer), Timecode (5pin LEMO), CTRL (4pin 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.
