    Did this work out for you? If so, what were the damages? I intend travelling to India a couple of weeks with a RED One.
    Would appreciate any guidance.

    you can try talking to the customs guy and see if you can strike a deal. i know this sounds far fetched but not impossible. I know somebody who traveled from Singapore to India and managed to get in 42" LCD, Blue ray player, Nintendo WII, HD Cam (small consumer one) and bunch of other electronics stuff and paid only Rs 1200.

    Hey Krishna,
    There is no way by which you can avoid the customs duty. But even if you did, you will be in a fix at some point of time.

    Anybody who has imported a Red camera with accessories can let me know if (a) there are any agents who would import the stuff for me. (b) the custom formalities in this regard.

    a. There are lot of clearing agents and you can contact them based on your location.
    b. The customs duty is about 25% of your total bill amount including shipping. The procedure is time taking and tedious but if you have a proper clearing agent he could help you out with all the paper work.
