    Thanks for everyone that hammered on the beta build last week and submitted your log reports, that feedback allowed us to kill a bunch of bugs in record time.

    Along the way getting to 6.4.2 cleaned up so much old code it also allowed us to squeeze out a bit more out of Scarlet-W and Weapon MG in the form of increased ProRes formats:


    SCARLET-W and WEAPON 6K Magnesium will receive increased specs via firmware update:

    SCARLET-W and SCARLET-W Monochrome changes include:

    • Increased Max Data Speed: up to 170 MB/s using RED MINI-MAG®
    • Added Apple ProRes 422 and 422 LT at 4K (4096 × 2160) up to 29.97 fps
    • Added Avid Codecs DNxHR, SQ and LB at 4K (4096 × 2160) 8-bit up to 29.97 fps

    WEAPON 6K Magnesium changes include:

    • Added Apple ProRes 422 HQ, 422 and 422 LT at 4K (4096 × 2160) up to 29.97 fps
    • Added Avid Codecs DNxHR HQX at 4K (4096 × 2160) 12-bit up to 29.97 fps, DNxHR HQ, SQ and LB at 4K (4096 × 2160) 8-bit up to 29.97 fps



    Also, We as I mentioned in the last update we have increased our manufacturing spend significantly to catch up with the demand and backorder specially on Raven and Scarlet-W lines, and to offset those costs we are increasing the price on both Raven and Scarlet W.

    Effective immediately, RED RAVEN to $8,950 (£7,970 & 9,030€) and SCARLET-W & SCARLET-W Monochrome to $12,500 (£11,130 & 12,615€). If you already have a deposit in you will pay the old lower price when your camera is ready to ship. All deposits placed after the time of this post will be paying the new prices.

    Existing deposits also are entitled to the old pricing for upgrades, i.e. if you have a Raven deposit and want to upgrade to Scarlet-W before your Raven ships you can do so to the old Scarlet-W price of $9950.



    Its also a good time to remind people that these are BETA builds. We plaster Beta all over the place for a reason... these builds we really are pushing out a lot of new things and there are going to be some bumps along the way.. you should not be just blindly installing these builds on your cameras in the middle of a "Work" shoot until you have tested them yourself and feel confident in how you use your cameras before introducing beta firmwares into your commercial jobs.

    Our Release builds are perfect for those that prefer stability over bleeding edge. After we work out the bugs of these 6.4.2 Betas, it will turn into the 7.0 Release Build... so if Beta builds scare you... wait for that.

    And please... EVERYONE should secure format all their cards when they move to a new build in camera on the new build and also do a new calibration. It's just good practice, specially when we added so many file format changes.

    In case anyone is having trouble installing, secure format your card.

    I tried 3 times and each time the camera would boot into 6.4.17, and automatically delete the force_upgrade folder. Then connecting it to the computer to try again, I'd get a "card full" message. So then I'd have to go back to camera and format it again. I tried UDF and FAT32 and neither worked until I did a secure format.

    Thanks for the update guys!

    Pound for pound, Scarlet-W is just incredible.

    And just to state something here that's a bit obvious, this is a free firmware update that just added a pretty big feature to all of your cameras.
