Revolva is available in PL and EF mount versions. Both have super precise and beautifully machined components. iData for PL and lens communication for EF are supported.

The design complements your RED® system elegantly, with robust and ergonomic engineering.

At the heart of the Revolva system, the quick change cartridges contain four best of class filters. ND values from clear to 2.1 and a range of diffusion options exist for maximum flexibility.

The filter wheel snaps magnetically between positions, locks positively, and clicks convincingly into the mount.

An ingenious backfocus compensation design ensures maximum clearance for a wide variety of lenses.

Backing up the smart optics and tough engineering, Revolva PL and EF feature complete camera firmware integration and captive mounting screws.

Ultra neutral FSND

Revolva ND cartridges use Full Spectrum neutral density filters.  This means that the visible and near-IR light is controlled and reduced to precisely the same degree.  As a result colour shifts otherwise caused by invisible IR pollution are intelligently minimised.

Frequently Asked Questions

Compatibility FAQ

Revolva is designed for any S35 sensor DSMC2 RED camera.
There is substantial compatibility with VV sensor cameras; certain lenses may vignette at full frame.
DSMC2 is the current RED body style, comprising: SCARLET-W, EPIC-W, WEAPON
S35 sensors: Dragon and Helium
VV sensor: Dragon and Monstro.
Note:
A number of camera configurations may need a simple riser for your LCD/EVF.
Not compatible – any pre DSMC2 camera, Raven.
Red’s 7” and 4.7” touch screens require the use of a riser for installation on the top cable-less port.
We recommend the Wooden Camera tool-less LCD adapter, which adds some practicality of its own for 4.7” users too.
The DSMC2 EVF requires the same type of riser, again adding some practicality to its mounting in the process.
Red’s Lemo adapters, as well as Pogo to Lemo adapters from Tilta and Wooden camera fit as function normally.
No accessory or top plate can be allowed to protrude beyond the face of the camera above the lens mount, adjacent to the camera name badge.
For specific rigging queries please enquire directly prior to purchase.
Revolva PL and PL-S are compatible with most modern PL lenses, and Revolva EF is compatible with any EF lens.
Only PL lenses which have a very deep rear element projection cause trouble.
Lenses with rear projection up to ~21mm behind the flange are safe.
Rear projections of ~21mm to ~23mm fit, but are in the ‘No Swap’ zone.
‘No Swap’ means the Revolva cartridge must not be swapped without removing the lens.
Note that lenses of this type tend often to be less than ideal on digital systems due to the acute angle of light striking the sensor.
To check safe lens fitment a simple tool is provided.
The tool is available separately for a nominal charge, refundable against a Revolva purchase.
No.
Currently we intend only to make EF and PL versions.

Nikon has some electro-mechanical complications which are tough to package around Revolva’s mechanism.
Leica flange depth makes this version impossible.

Note that many unusual lenses are adaptable to EF.
