Bright Tangerine RED Komoto X Cage First Look IBC 2023

One camera that arguably needs a cage is the Red Komodo X with its box form factor. Bright Tangerine has come up with a take on how to tackle the camera with a cage so you can mount all your goodies.

One tasty treat is the cage is covered in cheese – well, I mean cheese plates! There are a lot of Arri Accessory mounts all over this cage.

The goal is not to have the cage fit tightly on the body. Instead, there is a bit of space to allow for airflow on the side and some room to tuck cables and splitter box away on the inside.

The top handgrip mount is also a NATO rail and, of course, covered in accessory mounts. A very nice run/stop button is perfectly positioned on the right end of the handgrip rail, where your thumb naturally hovers over. You can use the very nice Kasbah hand grips as well.

A prototype V-Mount battery plate for powering the camera and accessories is on the back. The IO for cables on the battery mount isn’t final, as there is a bit more organization with the inputs needed to avoid blocking ports. It is always tricky with such a small, boxy body.

A splitter box can fit in that extra space between the cage and the camera and face forward so it doesn’t get in the operators way.

Also new for the Komodo X cage is a two-channel full-size XLR adapter. Bright Tangerine will offer the cage as a kit, or you can buy individual pieces depending on your needs. It’s in the late stages of being a prototype but very close to production-ready. If you have suggestions, Bright Tangerine listens. Pricing and release date hasn’t been set yet.
