    It looks as if Red One will dovetail into the Red Rail, that's elegant. Will it be clamped down like a traditional Bridge/Base plate?

    the clamp clamps from the side, much like the standard locking plates.

    Well, since I just got my "R" in the mail today, this is certainly very exciting news.

    Alright, observation time.

    The top handle is adjustable! That's actually very handy... I've wished for adjustable handles before. The locking mechanism on the top and front handles must be quite impressive...

    The mounting system for the raid and battery on the back is interesting... two points of rotational adjustment. The more, the merrier.

    Bummer about no run button on the front grips, at least not that I can see. Oh well, I have to shift the camera for a second and a half to hit it.

    I really like the streamlined low-mount on top of the camera in the last two pictures. The top of the cage is one thing, but this little plate is SO small with so many mounting points... sometimes I don't need a kitchen sink on the camera, just a few toys. Very nice and very light.

    The third picture gives a good look at the dovetailing on the body to interface with the lower part of the cage/rail.

    I'm seeing lots of fore/aft weight adjustability for pitch stability but not a lot from side to side. With the weight of the EVF and a buttload of other accessories onboard I'm beginning to wonder if roll stability will be a problem. Only if an idiot is putting it together, I suppose.

    The top rods are making more sense now - I guess I didn't get a good enough look at them before. The front and the rear locks hold the rods in place and the two inner locks allow those little plates to slide fore and aft to place accessories wherever the user wants them. Nice!

    I'm looking forward to seeing where the EVF connects to the various low-mounts/cage alternatives. I have guesses.

    I see the EVF plug subject-side but I don't see any place on the front or side of the camera for it to plug in... does it plug in on the back?

    Thanks for all the renders, Jim.

    yeah.. the incredible modularity of the camera kinda eliminates the possibility of having a wired start/stop button in the handle.. but im sure if you really wanted one up there you can always add a wired control.

    I'm terribly long-winded, apologies to all who read through my posts and get nothing from them.

    I think for most hand-held applications the EVF will have to be positioned farther forward, or the shoulder mount farther back. How will the shoulder pad come off? Is there a Red Quick release?
    Finally seeing a photorealistic render is making the ergonomics very apparent. It's really exciting.

    I'm guessing that the shoulder pad can slide within that dovetailed mount. Slide it to where you want it and lock it in place.

    Very Nice, looking forward to it.

    Brook, I enjoyed reading it, but the emoticons helped express my initial range of visceral feelings towards the design. lol I do like the lower profile shoulder pad also...

    Love your experiments (as you would an ugly child). Joy is the engine of growth. Exploit the liberty in casting your work as beautiful experiments, iterations, attempts, trials, and errors. Take the long view and allow yourself the fun of failure every day.
