Installation guide for RED KOMODO Metabones RF-PL Adapter Support

komodo lens adapter support 04

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.
