Are there alternatives for the red camera parts solid by RED?
I know Zacuto makes evf's that work with the red camera but are there alternatives for power, media?

Most generic accessories will work. We have Element Technica accessories (their dual battery plate is a little expensive but amazing) and any v-mount battery works; we use a mix of RED and IDX batteries.

There seems to be no other company making RED media. While similar to an SSD, the REDMAG connector is proprietary.

Are you looking for specific parts? Or trying to get a full kit together on the cheap?

basically, I'm looking to lower the costs of the kit, now that the red one body is just 4000$.

If you have specific models you think are acceptable- I'll be glad to know.

Thank you.

Element, Wooden Camera, Anton Bauer, IDX, Arri, Nebtec,


AbelCine has a great starting list on their website, however it is by no means complete.

I have a bunch of parts from this Canadian based company. Really solid stuff.
