RED KOMODO Gets Canon RF Lens Support, AF Improvements, and More

The RED KOMODO has instantly turned into the most favorite entry-level cinema camera for a myriad of filmmakers who were previously desperately craving to enter the RED ecosystem without breaking the bank. Of course, this doesn’t stop RED from improving the functionality of its latest camera release while getting the most out of it through regular firmware updates.

The just-released KOMODO firmware version 1.4.0, for instance, adds Canon RF lens support in BETA to the camera along with Angelbird ARRI AV Pro 256GB CFast card support. Additionally, this update brings some further AF Improvements as well as it fixes the slow load of large R3D clip in Playback. Of course, there’s a decent number of bugs and fixes addressed along the way, so let’s take a closer look at the full list of everything RED KOMODO users will benefit from after installing this firmware update.
