    You really think I was the only one hoping the FF35 Scarlet could be my cinema camera AND replace my DSLR? I think that's what they MEANT with 'DSMC'

    But even if it turns out you couldn't do it with one brain, a Scarlet brain plus the stills-only brain and only ONE of everything else would probably still be cheaper and easier than owning two totally different camera systems from two different manufacturers. I'd be down for that.
    I think that once you've shot motion, even for a still end product, you will probably never shoot stills again.

    Why take a portrait shot and have someone blink?
    Why take an action shot and miss it?
    Why take a landscape shot only to have it marred by wildlife?
    Shoot motion.

    Send the prototype over to London, and I will make it boot in 2 secs.
    I had a look at the blueprints we stole... ah... you send us as agreed and I know where the problem is.

    LOL You were one of the first to notice or at least to post it ;-)

    11 days ago in Rome, Ted didn't have these news yet despite my direct question towards the subject.

    Whatever Jim. I would gladly wait 10 minutes for this thing to boot up...not like I am going to be turning it off much anyway...:}

Our current prototypes are starting up in 15 seconds and we think a reasonable target for production cameras is about 10 seconds.

    er... it's a Cinema Camera, not a news camera...

    15 sec is more than enough for such mega power :)

    Keep up the incredible work!

    A very good sign.
    That's the news I'm interested in!

    15 seconds is fine for me. Current 'PROTOTYPES'. It's funny how Jim tries to deliver bad news and inadvertedly ends up breaking the best news we've heard for ages.

    I don't know that a 'stills' mode would boot any quicker. Without a mirror you're dependent on the video system to see anything.
