Bright Tangerine has announced its LeftField System is now compatible with the new RED KOMODO-X. Although the KOMODO-X looks very similar to the original KOMODO, it features an elongated body, native micro v-lock mount, and additional IO.
The KOMODO-X is not fully compatible with components that worked with the original KOMODO. The main difference in compatibility and fit with current accessories is the repositioned mounting point on the bottom of the camera, while the original KOMODO has a screw spacing of 12.5mm, the KOMODO-X has a spacing of 25mm.
The KOMODO-X also features a locking RF mount and a run/stop button on the front of the camera. These two differences are the main factors that will impact compatibility with Bright Tangerine’s current product offering.
Bright Tangerine has designed several kits for those who want a well-thought-out and well-designed solution for their RED KOMODO-X.
There are also additional modular kits available, such as quick-release baseplates for 15mm LWS and top handle kits, in addition to the Base, Advanced, and Expert kits.
The kits and accessories can be used with both the RED KOMODO-X and the original KOMODO, making them cross-compatible.
What about if you already have a LeftField System for your KOMODU, but you have upgraded to a KOMOD0-X?
For current owners of Bright Tangerine’s LeftField 15mm LWS Baseplate with standard riser (B4002.1023), you will need to contact customer support for a special order washer plate that provides correct screw spacing and proper fitment to the baseplate.
The updated standard riser (B4002.1123) includes washer plates for both the RED KOMODO & KOMODO-X.
To use the KOMODO-X with the DJI Riser, you will need to use B4002.1071 Universal Extended DJI RS 2 & RS 3 Dovetail. Our universal dovetails feature shuttles with adjustable screw spacing to work with multiple cameras.
Other compatible accessories for the RED KOMODO-X
The RED KOMODO-X now has support for the RED DSMC3 TOUCH 7″ Monitor using the Pogo pins. To relocate the monitor, you can use the Monitor Mount for DSMC3 RED Touch (B4002.1068).
Whether you want an easy setup or something more complex that allows you to make quick adjustments on set, Bright Tangerine has a lot of available solutions.
