Wonder if they'd do the mount conversion for the 2.5K. It's the same body....

Possibly a sensor size issue with FF lenses on a MFT mount.

Shooting on PL mount helps 1st ACs keep things in focus, every time repeatable marks=a faster moving set, saving time and money.
Lens support prevents damage to very expensive PL mount lenses you can now use because of the mount mod.
The top mount allows for more ways to configure cameras for different set ups and shots, potentially saving time and again time is money.
the C box allows for multiple monitor paths which opens up a lot of possibilities, being able to monitor a camera that is up on a crane, or on a fast moving steadicam etc.

All these things in the right hands can help keep a set moving along smoother, which in turn means a better translation from script to screen, thus making a better film.

I second what Carlos says. In a post about a company that makes gear (really good and amazingly affordable gear), I would consider talk about script or directing completely irrelevant. I aspire to direct, and I care about story...but I make my living shooting stuff (DPing when I'm lucky, but mostly steadicam and regular operating) and WC is a company that caters to many of my needs. Instead of rhetoric, why don't you write comments or start a dialog about story or other things in the appropriate places?

Bravo for Interchangeable Mount System! I got set of Baltar lenses with the mount adapter to RED camera.
I would like to send Black Magic 4K camera for this modification. Need more specific info. Thank you.
