So does this push back the stage 3 people? Not going to pay for a whole new system. My MX is fine for now but I will be trading it in for the new one. I don't have a need to own 2 Red cameras.
I would have to, with great respect, disagree.
It is specifically an amended option for the EPIC that has been discussed previously, and it is this that I am asking about:
An option that takes into account the fact that some stage 3 owners may have just recently upgraded to MX to maintain viable marketability on themselves and their red one's in their respective markets... a sizable investment without knowing the timetable we know now. I think many forget that upgrading the MX in some places may have been market driven in order to keep the camera renting while waiting for Epic... its not always a personal choice by the owner.
For those in Stage 3 that have followed Epics development and successes with bated breadth and loyalty, the Epic Light regardless of the name will probably not fill the niche we've carved out.
I ask because I think it would help some of us in the affore-mentioned "stage 3 MX boat" make some near term financial decisions. Knowing that there was a way to maintain or recoup the investment we made in the the MX upgrade either buy being able to keep our upgraded RED ones and pay a larger trade-up... or recoup some of the MX cost could make purchasing decisions a bit easier.
A. If the production Epic is not "machined," then how and of what is it made?
B. Before anyone can make a studied decision on the titanium version @$78M, how much weight do you save v. the production model?
Aside from the ego factor, eliminating 30-40% of the weight might be a big deal. I know it would be for me. Saving a pound probably not worth it. Having a brushed titanium body and traveling in the right circles=priceless.
