    I think this might be a huge feature that many people seem to be overlooking and worthy of it's own topic. There is a lot of potential with this port.

    From BMD's website:
    Expansion Port
    DB-HD15 serial connector provides support for:
    Power input
    LANC input
    1 x S.Bus channel input
    4 x PWM channel input
    Genlock input
    Composite video output
    The first thing that came to mind when I read the specs was 3D because it has genlock capabilities. Imagine a small custom handheld rig with two BMMCC heads set up to shoot 3D. I bet we see a manufacture or two come out with some pretty awesome rigs for just this purpose.

    What other things do people see the expansion port good for?

    I and actually really excited about this. I may have to rethink my current project, this is probably the cheapest way forward with genlock.

    **But, the thing is is 3.5" wide, which, upon finding this out I thought to myself, "How Stupid..."
