    It has already been a very Happy New Year :)

    Making great progress on the Weapon Woven Carbon upgrades.. On track to finish sending out notifications inside the next 2 weeks.

    MG Weapon upgrades will immediately commence following that and new MG Weapons will begin to ship Feb. 5th.

    Scarlet W is 100% ready and standing by... As we promised to our MG customers, Scarlet-W will only begin to ship right after all MG upgrade customers are blasted which means you early Scarlet-W reservations should start getting your cameras in your hands one month from today.

    Raven is still on track to start shipping in March. There is no legacy upgrade wait for those... as soon as the sensors come in they will begin to ship.

    I'm getting dozens and dozens of requests for 8ks everyday, and yes Marvel / Panavision is still gobbling every one that comes off the line. We will get out of the one-by-one "tedious" production of 8ks when we start doing monster batches at the end of March and the production of 8ks will ramp up significantly at that time.

    All very good news. Kudos to everyone at RED for mastering the art of the production line.

    Thanks for the notes, always helpful.
    Hope you are able to hit your dates on the larger 8K batches, sure would be more fun to be swapping 8K shooting stories at NAB instead of bitch sessions about the wait ;-)

    heh heh heh. I hope I've been very clear on the ( lack of ) speed that 8ks take to build. The 8ks are a monumental leap ahead of pretty much everything and they just take alot of time to get right.

    Jarred, thank you for the constant updates. If you can (please) answer this, would it be safe to say Raven preorders made this month will likely get their Raven in March or April?

    Thanks for the updates!

    is there any idea yet of what the 8k will cost for those who didn't pre-order?
