September 20th, 2017

ABT have introduced the SpeedMount EF for DSMC2 cameras, with an image circle that covers the RED Helium and Dragon sensors. Here are the details.

ABT SpeedMount EF

The ABT EF SpeedMount is a modified 5-element/4-group optical block in a black anodized aluminium body. It features a positive lock to mount your lenses and electronic iris and focus control for Canon EF lenses using RED’s original electronics. The best thing about this product is that it requires no modifications to your DSMC2 camera. It is easy to swap with your regular DSMC2 mounts and OLPFs.

Speed Booster and OLPF options

The SpeedMount reduces the full frame (43.3mm) image circle to S35 format (x0.71) while speeding up the lens for nearly one f-stop, much like the Metabones Speed Booster. The new image circle will cover 7K WS / 7K HD Helium and 5K WS / 5K HD Dragon. The original RED VV OLPF with custom holder is included, and you can choose between RED’s “Skin Tone / Highlight”, “Standard” and “Low Light”.

The SpeedMount for RED DSMC2 will be available as of December 2017 for €3.995,00, with a special introductory price of €3.395,00. For more information, visit store-abt.de

If this is for DSMC2 then why are you showing a DSMC1 camera?

About the same price as RED asks for DSMC RED MOTION Ti Canon Mount (Captive) so sounds reasonable. Don’t compare prices for PRO camera accessories to those for consumer camera’s. Red weapon 8K $50.000 vs. GH5 4K $2.000.

Or bugatti vs. fiat panda.

$4,000 bucks for this is an absolutely stupid price though. SW owner. Only shoots with natural light. This price is stupid.
