Lens Mount and OLPF
If upgrading from a non-MONSTRO camera to a MONSTRO camera, your lens mount and OLPF will be upgraded with your camera to conform to 8K VV. Additional lens mounts and OLPFs may be purchased separately.
Upgrading from WEAPON to DSMC2 does not affect your warranty status. The warranty on your original camera carries over to your new camera.
Upgrade Sales Tax
If you take delivery of your upgraded camera in California, Florida, New York, or Washington, then applicable sales tax is applied. You will be charged sales tax on the full retail price of the upgrade.
If you take delivery of your upgraded camera in the European Union, Value Added Tax (VAT) may be applied where applicable.
You are responsible for shipping your camera to RED.
RED recommends that you use a traceable and insurable carrier when shipping to RED.
RED will cover the return shipping back to you after the upgrade is completed.
Once you have been issued a service order number, you can send your camera to any of the worldwide RED facilities.
NOTE: The upgrade is performed exclusively at RED Headquarters in Irvine, CA. If you send your camera to other RED facilities, that will add to the anticipated turnaround time.
