The RED DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander offers a variety of Input/Output connections, as well as an industry standard V-Lock mount to power your DSMC2 camera using optional RED BRICK® batteries.

The DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander also features a selector switch to enables your BRAIN to automatically boot when power is provided via the DC IN connector on the expander. This feature allows you to use a connected DC input supply to turn the BRAIN on/off when your RED DSMC2 camera is mounted in remote or difficult to maneuver locations.

This expander is an ideal solution for a wide variety of production environments, from low-profile run-and-gun situations, to studio shoots that require mobility.

NOTE: The DSMC2 Top Handle is NOT fully compatible with the DSMC2 Base I/O V-Lock Expander. The top handle will interfere with the battery when one is attached to the expander module.
