Right there. If Red maybe makes it a little wider they could put in a little groove to use as a grip. Also, making this part wider would allow a spot for XLR (or mini-XLR) ports.

Just thought I'd share and hopefully Red will listen, because a handle, strap, anything to actually hold the camera with one hand on the body and the other on the lens is a must.

Definitely. If Scarlet needs to gain 1 more pound (total of 4 lbs.) in order to get a couple of mini-XLR ports, that'd be fine by me.

We should all be trying to help Scarlet with her eating disorder. It's not healthy being that skinny...

Come on Scarlet, you're not too fat. They call them love handles for a reason. I gotta have something to hold onto you baby.

I like mine skinny. Not planning on using it for hand held work myself. It doesn't look like it would be very comfortable to hold that way anyway.

Looking by that angle.

Wow, Scarlet is really weird!

The HVX is fairly lite to me, i dont mind it gaining a pound or two to accomadate a nice grip for one hand to hold and the other to focus/zoom, pretty much a standard. Two handles is a no no, unless one is shooting auto all the time, which i doubt

Two handles are useful for certain situations. I could not shoot while skiing in Himalayas without two handles and shoulder mount. And that was ARRI-435 - no auto mode on this lady...

forget auto, thats not the point. But a two handle system should be an option for those wanting it for "special situations", Scarlet should come with a basic one grip feature since we wanna manually operate it.

yeah and not actually alter the body or add a hunk of extra aluminum. Might kill the versatility of the camera.
