Salty Surf Housings Taking Preorders for RED Komodo Housing
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 28, 2020 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

Salty Surf Housings is taking preorders for its new surf housing for the RED Komodo, a brand new Super 35 6K cinema camera. In addition to the camera, the housing accommodates two Canon BP-975 batteries (or smaller), and an Atomos Shinobi monitor with battery (NP-F770). The camera’s physical controls are mirrored on the top plate of the housing.

Depth-rated to 66 feet (20 meters), the housing is machined from aluminum and comes with integrated side handles. The housing features Salty’s S-System port system, offering compatibility with lenses up to 105mm diameter. A wide variety of very cool paint options are offered.

Available in September 2020, the new housing has a base price of AU$4,950, which is just over US$3,500 (without port).



Camera Housing for RED® KOMODO™


Shipping from September 2020.

Available on backorder



  • Housing shell
  • 2x Vans ODI Side Handles
  • S-System Port System

*BASE price does NOT include a mandatory port option. You cannot use the housing without at least one port. The S-System is the port thread in the housing.

Camera Configuration

Our RED® KOMODO™ housing is designed to work with:

  • RED KOMODO Camera
  • 2x Canon BP-975 Batteries (or smaller)
  • Atomos Shinobi with NP-F770 Battery (with on/off control)

You can fit similar size monitors to the Shinobi 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 ON/OFF Switch
  • 2x M16 bulkhead thread


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)
