Third-party Camera Control is now available for the Hi-5 when using either the cforce mini RF or RIA-1 as a motor controller.

In the Tech Talk, Sean walks you through setting up the Sony Venice and Venice 2, RED DSMC2 cameras, and the RED Komodo/V-Raptor to enable camera control for Hi-5.

It is also possible to inject lens metadata into a Sony Venice or Venice 2, and there is a dedicated tutorial section on that at the end of this video.

You can use the chapters in the video (listed below) to jump to the most relevant section for you.
