    ok so lets say i "downgrade" to the gemini from my 8k epic w for free. Would that "upgraded" gemini 5k dsmc2 camera still be eligible for for the current upgrade price of VV for 39,500 down the road? Or will the upgrade price become whatever the VV price is at that moment?

    So this question was asked earlier, ..

    owning an Epic-W helium what does the upgrade gain other then just 60fps @ 8k????

    Will it bake in color to Prores @ 4k??? THAT I could use and make money with!!!!!!

    What is the advanyage here?? 60fps@8k I could care less about.
    If I don't ungrade the board will the camera still be serviced/supported by Red?

    Remember, Don't try and figure out the math , it will drive you bonkers. :)

    However, i think it is only fair if you are an existing Weapon Helium owner though you can still upgrade for the old price untl the current monstro sensor batch inventory runs out... that seems kinda fair.... since those have already been amortized. Brent?

    Yeah it's a bit of a sting that our Weapon 8k S35 now cost as much as Epic-W used to. My Weapon is less than a year old...

    Mind blown and now my decision has been made easy for me, Thanks Jarred!!! HELIUM 8k 60fps upgrade via new DSMC2 internals for 5k.... I am sticking with my 8k and upgrading board. Will pick up a GEMINI after I offload this RAVEN. This is a huge plus for the entire line of cameras and in the long run will make the sensor swap program run much more smoothly.

    I don't think it's free, that's the kicker. I believe it's $4,950.

    Sold. WEAPON CF folks (I would say both DRAGON and HELIUM) can upgrade to MONSTRO still for $29.5K (contact your rep, won't be online) until MONSTRO sensors in house run out.

    I assume this means the $12,500 Scarlet-W is going away for good though, right? So the only camera available for under $19,500 will be the Raven going forward when the current S-W inventory is cleared out?

    That's what makes this all so interesting. You will have arguments that it's not a downgrade. Sure price would appear to make it so.. but we see more and more that there is specific scenarios where Helium beats Gemini and Gemini beats Helium. That's kind of the whole point of all this... its like saying a sportscar is always better than a SUV or vice versa.
