DSMC Side Handle

The DSMC® Side Handle is a hand-held, customizable module that grants you control over RED EPIC® or SCARLET® menu functions. The DSMC Side Handle also provides space to insert a single REDVOLT® battery to power your DSMC BRAIN® and provide hot-swap support for other batteries.

The DSMC Side Handle is ideal for hand-held shooting. An ergonomic navigation wheel, backlit display, and customizable buttons and settings, provides an easy way to adjust important camera parameters, as well as hold your DSMC on-the-go. REDVOLT not included.

NOTE: If upgrading firmware for a DSMC Side Handle from a build earlier than 6.0.46, RED recommends upgrading to 6.0.46 before updating to more recent versions of firmware. For more information or detailed instructions, please visit the support article here.

NOTE: Upgrading your DSMC to v5.3 also upgrades the DSMC Side Handle. During the upgrade, you will be instructed to shut down the DSMC twice so that the firmware upgrades successfully. Any DSMC Side Handle that is upgraded to v5.3 can only be used with DSMCs running v5.2 or later. In order to use a DSMC Side Handle with v5.1 after you’ve upgraded it to v5.3, first downgrade to v5.2, and then downgrade to v5.1.
