Speed up your DSMC2 with the new SpeedMount for RED cameras
ABT cine and Hanse Inno Tech are going to present the SpeedMount for RED DSMC2 at IBC 2017
Everybody who followed threads at reduser.net on a regular basis or is a member of Facebook groups such as red epic-w or red scarlet-w has probably read about several attempts by redusers to integrate a focal length reducer into a Canon EF Mount for RED.
As a dealer and distributor for professional cine equipment, ABT cine started to work themselves on a solution to adapt full frame lenses to the RED DSMC2 Helium or Dragon sensor while gaining one stop of light.
The research led up to a cooperation with Lars and Steven from Hanse Inno Tech, who not only brought the popular Celere HS lenses to the market, but also manufacture well thought out grip solutions, which makes them the perfect partner for optical as well as mechanic product development.
The SpeedMount reduces the full frame Image circle (43.3mm) to S35 format while speeding up the lens for nearly one stop. The new image circle covers 7K WS / 7K HD Helium and 5K WS / 5K HD Dragon. The first version will feature a Canon EF mount for RED DSMC2 cameras. Further options are being considered. Good news for owners of modern still photography lenses: electronic iris and focus control for Canon lenses will be integrated as well by using the original RED electronics.
An original RED VV OLPF with custom holder will be included, you can choose between RED’s “Skin Tone / Highlight”, “Standard” and “Low Light”.
The Mount features a positive lock mechanism to securely mount the lenses and it will be built from black anodized aluminium. There are no modifications to the DSMC2 camera needed. The SpeedMount is easy to swap with regular DSMC2 mounts and OLPFs.
The SpeedMount for RED DSMC2 will be showcased at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam. Feel free to contact us for an appointment in Amsterdam, sign up to our Newsletter below or preorder now!
