Installation guide for RED KOMODO Kippertie RF Support
The RF mount on the Komodo is a sprung mount system, and relies on small springs inside the mount to pull the adapter into the right place.
If the adapter support is installed incorrectly, it can result in the lens adapter being pushed or tilted in the wrong direction, which can result in focus and other optical issues.
The following installation sequence must be followed in order to ensure that the adapter is supported correctly on the camera body.
You will need to use a 2.5mm Hex Key.
A – Mount Screw – M3x10mm – 2.5mm Hex
B – Captive Screw – M3 – 2.5mm Hex
