    Hey all just thought I would give a quick update.

    Its been a catchup week for Komodo, the incredible work from many of you that have received your Komodos in the customer beta team who have been banging on their cameras have been overwhelming ( in a good way ) so last week we slowed down building cameras for the engineers to catch up so they could get as many hardware updates and bug fixes into the new software build that now is going out to the testers over the next few hours today. Mikael is pumping out new RED CONTROL ( fool control ) builds almost daily and the progress he is making is pretty incredible.

    I can however share with you the planned next color now… although as we rapidly get closer and closer to pulling the trigger on Stormtroopers I am not sure if we will actually get to this color. That’s why I am naming this color “ Bye Bye Blue “ as at the end of next week after we finish a massive internal test pilot run and our engineers will make the call if we keep going down the custom color path , or if we stop and roll over into preparing for the white cameras production.

    Right now with the guidance of the government we have the first week of July for the next Covid phase for a larger reopening of our factory , which means if we make that “start the presses” call next week we will take the last few days of June and the first week of July to prep and ramp up, the following 2 weeks to build an army of stormtroopers and once engineering and manufacturing gives the “ ship em “ approval, ALL of you will be part of it.

    Either way I will update you all again next Friday(ish) . It’s kind of good news either way… but given how long the colored camera list as grown you probably will want to hear white cameras coming instead of blue as your odds quickly go from less than 1% to almost 100%.

    All of you that have emailed me at jarred@red.com and have been put on the list for a color camera will immediately be put at the front of the line for stormtroopers. I will close that list down next week if we do go forward with stormtroopers and I will make sure we make enough for everyone on the list that wants to buy one. If you think you are on the list and didn’t get an email from me in the last hour, please email me again because once that list is closed its closed and the I just blasted out so man emails I am pretty sure that I have been flagged by every major spam filter now. Of course, you can always wait to order from either RED or a selected dealer when this all becomes more “official”

    This is great. I responded to the email, hopeful for blue but if it’s Stormtrooper than that’ll have to do.

    It’s really more about getting one ASAP rather than color.

    Thanks to you and your team, Jarred.

    Reminds me of the Ford GT 40 classic blue.

    @Jarredland Iím excited that the storm troopers are coming as that must mean the production version of this camera is not too far off. That said, does the production version have to be limited to black only? Iím not sure the world is crying out for yet another black camera body? Red for Red might work? Or a combination of black with color accents? In any case, Iím liking what Iím seeing after playing with some footage.

    Same vibes on that Ford. Grab a little tape and boom stripe it up. Orange and blue do work so well together :)

    Wasn't the Orange on whole of the front bumper on the GT 40 and not just a stripe.
