Revolva RF/PL

From £900.00

Rapid, Intuitive, Robust.

Revolva RF/PL is the essential combination filter mount and adapter for RED® Komodo. Converting from Komodo’s native RF mount to industry standard PL, Revolva performs double duty by providing an integrated ND system with cinema quality optics.  Filter cartridges are loaded with a four-position rotating filter.  Revolva RF/PL is compatible with any quick-change Revolva cartridge, for best of class ND and diffusion, right where you need it.

It’s easy to love. No fumbling with trays, sticking screw threads or dropped and smashed filters. Just slip in the tough aerospace alloy filter cartridge and spin to the filter you need.

Revolva RF/PL is designed especially to complement Komodo, but will fit any RF mount. The majority of modern PL lenses are compatible, and the supplied smart fitment tool makes double-checking simple.

Included is a robust support foot engineered to match the Komodo’s body size, allowing the PL mount to be tied rigidly to a base plate or other support with 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 fittings.

Optionally the Chinstrap mount support provides exceptional rigidity connecting the Revolva RF/PL directly to the Komodo camera body.

Lead time for new orders is approximately 3 weeks

Please select support type and filter cartridges below.

Note: Revolva requires at least one cartridge to function,  but is compatible with all pre-existing cartridges.

Revolva RF/PL brings all the practicality of the original design for DSMC2, to the RED Komodo. Ideal for rapid, challenging production work and modern PL glass.

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

At the heart of the Revolva system, the quick change cartridge contain four best of class filters with ND values from clear to 2.1.  Any existing Revolva cartridge is compatible too.

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

For ultimate stability we recommend configuring Revolva RF/PL with the Chinstrap mount support, locking the mount firmly and directly to the Komodo body.

Ultra neutral FSND

ND 0 (clear)
ND 0.6
ND 1.2
ND 2.1

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.

FAQ

Compatibility FAQ

Revolva PL and EF are designed for any S35 sensor DSMC2 RED camera.
There is substantial compatibility with VV sensor cameras; certain lenses may vignette at full frame.
Note:
A number of camera configurations may need a simple riser for your LCD/EVF.
Not compatible – any pre DSMC2 camera, Raven.
Revolva PL/RF is designed for Komodo.
A support foot is supplied whose use is recommended. Better still is the Chinstrap mount
The Revolva PL/RF will also fit any camera with a Canon RF (Eos R) mount
DSMC2: 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 for a height of 20mm, adjacent to the camera name badge.
For specific rigging queries please enquire directly prior to purchase.
Komodo: No currently available accessories conflict.
No accessory or top plate can be allowed to protrude beyond the face of the camera above the lens mount for a height of 25mm, adjacent to the camera name badge.
Revolva PL, PL-S and RF/PL 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.
