World Dynamics United has simply launched a brand new set of equipment which might be tailored for the RED KOMODO and V-RAPTOR cameras. This new collection consists of high and facet deal with options, a Rosette EVF arm, and a complete rig for the V-RAPTOR.
Whereas the market is overcrowded with equipment for the RED KOMODO, the V-RAPTOR remains to be comparatively new within the sport and third-party producers are simply getting began creating equipment for this digital camera.
Amongst these, World Dynamics United, an organization that primarily focuses on RED cameras, is legendary for creating merchandise that ship performance with a really distinctive look. Their new collection of equipment for the KOMODO and V-RAPTOR is not any exception. Let’s take a more in-depth look.
GDU equipment for KOMODO and V-RAPTOR: the Atlas Deal with
Let’s begin with the brand new GDU Atlas Handles which might be appropriate with each cameras. Their slim and ergonomic design appears to supply a stable grip. Every deal with screws to the facet of the digital camera through a department connector.
The RED KOMODO and V-RAPTOR require totally different department adapters. These can be found for buy individually, so you may shortly transfer the handles backwards and forwards between the 2 totally different digital camera fashions with out having to purchase a second deal with pair. By the best way, when you don’t want each handles, you may nonetheless decide up solely the proper or left one.
The handles are light-weight because of the 6061 aluminum building. Furthermore, GDU additionally stored an eye fixed on model and you may be spoilt for selection when selecting up the proper colour in your rig. In actual fact, the Atlas Handles are available in 5 totally different anodized finishes: Crimson, Black, White, Gunmetal Gray, Champagne Gold.
The Quantum merchandise
The Quantum equipment are nearly solely appropriate with the RED V-RAPTOR solely, with a few exceptions.
The GDU Quantum Rig for the V-RAPTOR features a backside plate, a right-angled and a flat cheese plate, a physique pad, and two threaded rod mounts. The entire rig appears to wrap across the digital camera properly, offering a really compact and versatile rigging resolution.
The Quantum Facet Deal with mounts on the facet of the V-RAPTOR’s physique. It encompasses a fairly easy design and supplies a number of 1/4”-20 and three/8”-16 mounting factors to equip the digital camera with further equipment.
The GDU Quantum High Deal with is appropriate with each cameras and supplies a number of mounting factors for equipment. Nevertheless, whereas it appears to be like like a wise resolution for the V-RAPTOR, its place on the KOMODO appears a bit of odd to me.
In actual fact, the highest deal with is supposed to be side-mounted on high of the V-RAPTOR. This design nonetheless leaves the entrance threaded holes of the digital camera unobstructed and free to host an on-camera monitor or different equipment.
However, it mounts transversely on high of the RED KOMODO. Despite the fact that it’s onerous to discover a high deal with resolution that doesn’t impede the highest LCD of the digital camera indirectly, I’m afraid this deal with would cowl the entire width of the display when mounted backwards. However this wants some testing within the subject.
Lastly, two different merchandise report the Quantum label: a Facet Rosette for the V-RAPTOR and a twin Rosette EVF arm.
