The LW 15mm Baseplate (RED KOMODO) provides 15mm lightweight rod openings at the correct distance to the center of the lens. ARRI standard, M6 rosettes are on both sides along with 1/4-20 threaded holes. 3/8-16 ARRI accessory mount also available on camera right side.

Lower dovetail slot is ARRI standard for attaching to ARRI dovetails or the included Quick Dovetail. With Quick Dovetail attached, the baseplate and camera combination can be combined with an ARRI standard bridge plate like Quick Release Bridgeplate (19mm) or Quick Release Bridgeplate (15mm Studio).
The Complete Top Mount Kit (RED KOMODO) features a Top Mount that attaches to the camera body using two captive 1/4-20 screws and provides a center ARCA Swiss dovetail clamping slot along with 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for attaching accessories.
Included Top Handle slides into ARCA slot and leaves camera control screen easily accessible. Shoe mount on top can hold on-camera lights and microphones and side 15mm opening can hold included monitor arm or UVF Mount V2. 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 ARRI accessory mount in several places and 15mm lightweight rod bracket on front for attaching lens motors and more.
Monitor Hinge can attach into ARCA slot and provides a direct 1/4-20 mount for SmallHD monitors. Included rubber pad can be added for attaching third party monitors. A 15mm mounting spud is included and allows monitor arm to be quick released and attached onto Top Handle.
Top Plate slides into ARCA slot to provide rows of 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 ARRI accessory mounts in standard spacing and can be adjusted forwards to allow camera control screen access. Great for attaching to gimbal and drone systems or for using legacy Wooden Camera products.
The Battery Slide Pro Gold Mount (RED KOMODO) attaches to the camera-left, BP-9 battery slot and powers the camera using a right angle LEMO compatible connector. Thumbscrew can be loosened to tilt and slide the plate as needed.
Three D-Taps on the plate provide battery voltage for accessories and power is monitored for over-current. If more than 5.8A are used by accessories, a digital fuse will trip and the red LED will illuminate but the camera will remain powered. Reset button can be pressed to restart accessory power once.
DC Input on camera-right side can be used for hot-swapping between block battery and on-board battery. While the AC adapter that comes with the KOMODO can be used, please note that it may not be powerful enough to sustain the camera and accessory draw.
If hot-swapping between Gold Mount battery and BP-955 battery is desired, please consider Battery Slide Extension for Canon BP-955 Hot Swap (RED KOMODO) which moves the battery plate further back from the camera body.
Komodo is Red’s first truly affordable camera system. It is likely to fulfil many roles - as a feature film B-camera or main camera for documentary production. Fortunately, the Komodo’s cuboid-shape lends itself very well to being rigged, powered, adapted and mounted to suit virtually any shooting style. Compact and lightweight, it’s as likely to be airborne on a drone as it is attached to a gimbal. Power to Go As a go-anywhere camera, power is a key consideration. Natively supporting dual Canon BP-type batteries, the Komodo can be adapted to take professional V- or 3-stud batteries. Core SWX’s RED Komodo plate is RED-approved. As well as feeding power to the camera, the plate offers a 2-pin Lemo output and Powertap output, giving you the ability to run monitors, viewfinder, remote focus system and transmitters. Like the Core adapter for the Sony FX9, the Komodo plate is beautifully manufactured, built to last.
