Sorry, not up to the standards of excellence set by the artistic and technical talent so prevalent on this board..... But come on... With how much excitement and anticipation has built up, at least I took some horrid iPhone 4 pics of the moment :-)

nice :) as I have been reading these threads I know how bad u wanted that to come! congrats.
nice to see the wooden handle in that config too. how does that feel?

LOVE the WH leather grip!! I used it a couple of times on another Epic-M.... And for a few $$ more he will throw the other rubber grip into the box when it ships!
Of course I own ZERO PL glass..... And a load of EOS mount.... So no shooting joy today... or till the Canon Ti arrives.. A mixed-emotion to say the elast.
I am trying to get motivated/excited and get into the garage and start machining some mounts/bits for the camera on the CNC Mill though. That will help tide me over till the mount arrives. Well, that and Xanax :-)

Excellent news, Scott.
Say goodbye to sleep for a while. :smiley:
It's great to see you finally get your Epic.
12-07-2011, 01:11 PM
Congratulations Scott! I didn't get my side handle for over a month after the body arrived.
12-07-2011, 02:19 PM
Looks great. Hopefully you will get your canon mount soon.

so happy for you! pretty weird that RED is shipping out of order somehow.
12-07-2011, 02:34 PM
Congrats Scott! Could see how eager you were from the Stage II list!

Btw, any thread on reduser to see "where are we" in the Stage II Epic delivery process ? (By S/N or date of Red delivery, don't care!)

Consider yourself lucky that you even got a side handle....we've been waiting for ours for 2.5 months for our epics stage 2...
Congrats and have fun! :)

I feel amazed that I somehow had "Exactly" the right amount of $$ the 3 times !! 1 time for the actual purchase of my R1, then for the deposit, which I got an extra few $$ the week the Stage II offer went "live" and now to actually pay for the Epic....
With some sadness..... Walking out the door to meet with some work buddies.... I did come to the conclusion that as part of "Simplifying" my and that of my two beloved daughters.... Selling R1-MX #6732 needs to happen. The sale will allow us to make the move and live almost without concern budget wise for a LONG time, as I have essentially no debt.
But I have honored Jim's request to retain the camera till I got my Epic. Selling it was never a plan until 2:00PM today. But I have to be realistic..
(Thanks... RU is cheaper than a therapist and funnier :-)

We're still waiting for our side handle, too. Hope it comes soon...

Congrats Scott !
Man, does the Wooden Camera side handle look gorgeous !

I do LOVE the WH leather grip!! Even adds to my "Steam Punk" love of the camera :-)
12-08-2011, 05:11 PM
Congratulations Scott, looks awesome.
12-08-2011, 05:16 PM
Thank you :-)
Now if I had time to play with it!! I am moving to Southern California.... and in a HUGE time-crunch to get the current rental packed/sorted/sold/thrown away......

Stage II yet... If I order Epic-X now, I may get it before next summer..?
12-19-2011, 11:05 AM
This was delivered 2 weeks ago, so they are really ramping up production is my guess.......

I LOVE my Top Handle. The leather is awesome.
Congrats on your Epic Scott!
