Any word on weights? Gotta figure out which Steadicam I'll need ;)
Very impressive specs on everything. I can't wait for the new tools! Know you guys are super busy, but just a little input from my end.
RedMote Pro is awesome for everybody's use, plain and simple. A little feature to add would be a little nub at the top of the rim that protects the marking wheel. The best AC's I've worked with will mark their wheel, one----two, then spin the tally mark to their one, and put their middle finger inside edge at the marking pole thing (don't know the technical term) then put their forefinger inside edge on the two mark. Giving a visual reference and physical one as well. As soon as they hit their mark, BOOM they know it... but that blocks the screen right behind the mark so I don't know how it may be implemented.
Can't wait for the Bomb EVF, when can I buy one from the red store, can i get in the club to test it out, I'll pay tomorrow morning.
How many lcds can be attached at one time on EPIC/Scarlet? Can i have 2 lcds attached simultaneously on EPIC, with BOMB evf?
So it that all? I really wish you guys would say whether an announcement is complete or not :P
A good, reassuring announcement IMO. Sean's Scarlet S35 fund starts now.
This is incredible... especially the fully featured 8x fixed Scarlet. 2010 is going to be a very exciting year.
Welp, i was pessimistic about this announcement, so thankfully, you guys have surprised me in a good way :)
For those debating between an 8x fixed or an interchangeable... assuming you can only afford or want one, I have a suggestion. (and this should be obvious for most, i hope)
If you have a nikon/canon dslr and electronic lenses, it may be well worth the extra 1,000 - 1,500 $ you will spend on battery/charger and lens mount.
Obviously thats the idea behind having the brain so cheap. I see the scarlet 2/3 aimed for those who only need just that or can only afford one or two of them. If you can afford the ff35 or above, you're more likely to be able to afford Red lenses.
Me? I'll be happy if I can afford a fixed sometime after it comes out. If not, im sure people's HVX 200s will be going for nice and cheap on ebay as they scramble to come up with cash for the scarlet.
Btw... I still shoot with a couple of Xl1's.
my thoughts.. feel like sharing tonight. Its a good night :)
So just to verify, is the 8X Fixed a "fixed" mount, as in you cannot swap out the 8X Lens with an Electronic mount for RED/Nikon/Canon? Or is it just a fixed 8X lens and you can upgrade later? The 8X Fixed kit is awfully tempting, especially if you could just slap on a $500 electronic mount later on...
