RED’s Quick Release Platform (Dovetail) features an ARRI-standard dovetail mount which is ideal for rapid camera deployment. It requires the addition of a camera-specific mounting plate for either the WEAPON®, RED RAVEN™, EPIC, SCARLET, or RED ONE. 

The Quick Release Platform pairs with your existing 15mm and 19mm rail components. It attaches to the bottom of the RED cameras listed above to produce an easy mount and removal of your equipment. RED suggests in their video that you can leave this platform on the bottom of your camera. 

The Platform includes an ARRI-style Dovetail on the bottom and the Quick Release Platform on top. The locks for each are on either side of the Platform. 

To use the 2-stage quick release:

Snap in your camera-specific platform. You will note both a lever and a small red button. Both are used to secure the Quick Release which means you cannot accidently bump it and release it while using the camera. To release the platform, depress the small, red button and push the lever. This reaches the first stage of your release. Next, press the small, red button again and pull the lever all the way over. You can now remove your camera.

To secure a dovetail accessory:

Slide in the dovetail then lock using the available mechanism on the opposide side of the Quick Release lever.



NOTE: Use this Quick Release Platform with the RED DSMC Mounting Plate (sold separately) which provides robust structure and locking elements for a secure attachment to a tripod or other configuration. You can also use up to two Universal Mounts (one on front and one on back, each sold separately) to secure your existing rail system. Screws are provided on the Universal Mount and appropriate threaded holes on the Platform for this purpose.
