Camera Configuration

Our RED® KOMODO™ housing is designed to work with one of the two configurations:

  • RED KOMODO Camera
  • 2x Canon BP-975 Batteries
  • Atomos Shinobi SDI 5″ + NP-F770 Battery (note, this must be the SDI version)


  • RED KOMODO Camera
  • 1x Canon BP-975 battery (on left) and 1x BP-955 battery (on right)
  • Ninja V + AtomX SDI Module + NP-F770 Battery

You can fit similar size monitors to the Shinobi and Ninja V inside the housing, however you will sacrifice the monitor on/off control capabilities.


The housing has full physical control of the camera, including

  • ON/OFF Switch
  • MENU
  • BACK
  • PLAY
  • Shinobi or Ninja V ON/OFF Switch
  • 2x M16 bulkhead thread

We now also have an option thumb control start/stop button.

This button is easier to reach than the physical RECORD button on the housing, and can be ordered for either your left or right thumb.

It is wired to the camera using the EXT port.



CNC machined from a single piece of billet aluminium then anodised and painted.

All buttons and hardware are 316 stainless steel, providing superior corrosion resistance.



The housing comes standard with two Vans ODI side handles included.



Our housings are painted in a highly durable two-pack paint. The paint not only provides additional corrosion protection to your housing, but also provides an opportunity to customise the look of your housing.

You get to choose your colour(s)! And the options are almost endless.

You can choose a color from here, or from our Instagram page (@saltysurfhousings)

Leave a note in checkout, or send us an email to let us know your color preference.



The KOMODO housing comes with  our ‘S-System’ port system, which is compatible with lenses up to 105mm diameter.

BASE price does NOT include a mandatory port option. You cannot use the housing without at least one port.

The KOMODO housing does not allow fitment of larger CINE lenses due to the compact size of the housing.

SALTY DSMC2 housing owners note: all your current ports for EF lenses will work with the KOMODO when coupled with a RF to EF adapter.

The front element in our ports is replaceable in less than 30 seconds by simply unscrewing the locking ring and dropping in a replacement acrylic screen we offer for purchase. So no more spending hours buffing scratched ports!




Shell only = approx. 3kg
