  1. #1 Trading Scarlet X for Komodo - OPINIONS PLEASE 
    Thinking about trading my Scarlet X kit, which is my A-cam, for a Komodo. Obviously won't be a straight trade, however should cover half the cost. What's the Pros and Cons of this decision? What would you do?

    Thanks In Advance :)

    Is this a trick/rhetorical question? While I haven't used a Komodo personally, on paper there is absolutely nothing the Scarlet-X does as well as (never mind "better than") Komodo.

    ...So ~$3k+Scarlet Brain for a Komodo? Pffft, I still have a Scarlet-X sitting here and would seriously consider that swap myself (and I certainly don't need another camera).

    It's def. time to. Scarlet X has become obsolete this year, almost any camera out there has something much more capable - be it FPS, or less weight etc. Komodo is a decent swap, keep in mind that you still need to buy all the accessories, so it's a tad more than +3K, more likely +5K. But you'll get cheaper accessories, starting from RS2 (compare it to MOVI PRO), and much more single-user friendly camera.

    That was my question. Scarlet Eco to Komodo Eco.
    What are we talking here as far as a trade goes?
    I'm still working with my Scarlet MX and probably never sell it.
    With the amount of "stuff", I purchased for it, not sure if it's worth moving at this point in my career.
    Probably better off just adding one to my arsenal :)

    Just my personal thoughts, Scarlet MX has pleasant look to me. More cinematic images, I love that grain as well. It probably depends on what you doing.

    Hey Russell,
    What does you kit include in it? I might be interested in purchasing it if you are wanting to get a Komodo. Where are you based on planet Earth?
    Cheers.
