    It's funny, as insignificant as that might seem, that was my main interest. I thought I was essentially getting a new camera.

    Haha me too. I thought this would be the case because I thought it was a new sensor going in?

    Should I be expecting an email confirm or something right after filling out the upgrade request? In my delirium (due to the late hour and sudden excitement of seeing the upgrade path explained on RU) Iím second guessing myself about whether or not I filled it out correctly or left out some pivotal, vitally important piece of information.

    Donít expect anything.
    Theyíll contact you when they are ready for you sending your camera.
    But theyíre very nice if you contact them if you have any doubt, including the confirmation that you are in the list

    So I currently have a Gemini, but had a scarlet-w as a b camera. Sold that months ago and got a pocket. Fast forward to now, I bought a dragon-x as a b camera and holy smokes. THIS THING IS STRAIGHT FIRE. I feel like it's way more sensitive in Low Light than the dragon x was.

    Hey Matt

    How much more sensitive would you say Dragon-X is compared to Dragon X ? Also, How does is compare with Gemini ?

    We still have 2x DSMC I Dragons and I must admit I love them, but I’ve been looking at Gemini and new Dragons.......

    Thanks !

    Wonder if you could shed some light on why youíre so much more excited about the DX than it sounds like you were about the SW? Iíd think the differences would be fairly minimal, no?

    I've been very happy with the update....

    Though now I'm on the fence whether I should just keep the Dragon X for awhile, or upgrade to Gemini?? Any other Dragon X owners in the same spot?

    When I went from Raven to S-W it felt like a huge upgrade. ISO performance was probably about 30% better plus the wider FOV. This is about the same increase in sensor size, plus much better frame rates.

    I think it was a nice move on REDs part to offer something like this and wanted to support. Of course itís much easier to sign the list than pony up the cash plus 3 weeks of downtime. But thereís nobody else in this class of professional cameras who would offer something like this.

    I totally get wanting to wait for Komodo ó but itís still unclear what exactly it will be, how much it will cost, and I bet it will be at least a year before itís in stock. DSMC3 will be insanely expensive no doubt.

    Sounds like my dragon will be back next week so hopefully itís good!
