RED is fluid. Things change. That is not a bad thing if the motive is good.
Change is fundamental to RED. Specs change. So far, our design and specs have changed for the better. The original RED ONE (NAB 2006) had no REDCODE RAW. Originally 4K could ONLY be recorded out the RAW port. REDCODE RAW turned out to be one of the things that makes RED so important. You now can record to Compact Flash. We didn't charge extra for it.
Our Industrial Design has changed because we are listening. We continue to do so.
Our system is modular to accept change. Our featues are changing because we are learning. Change is good. Don't be surprised if more things change. And we'll promise to try not to charge you for change.
