This my first post, lol.
I just want to say thank you Jim. Thank you for doing what was best FOR US. I know that you and your team have made tough decisions with Scarlet X. I agree with many that those decisions are truly historic. For me, it fills my heart with sincere gratitude, to have someone IN OUR CORNER. Someone doing what is right FOR US. I look forward to shooting many films on my Scarlet X.
Thank you again.
It actually turned into a good thing that we got raided. The 300 turned into a team on a mission to help us get the word out. It was really impressive to see everyone step up to solve the problem....
So Jim.. Does that mean down the line there will be a spartan camera?
Well - it's really interesting that the eventual no hype event and the coming together in time of need feelings that have been created here... Red family et al.
One thing to be thankful for is the fact that it was an open event with 3rd parties there... :)
The slow trickle of info & specs via Twitter and feeds etc, was tantalizing and (to be honest) probably more fun than the 'full on' originally planned event with everything presented in detail.
Bottom line is this will do great things for Red's reputation (amongst those who doubt) and now, at last, we know the specs of the Scarlet.
Thanks to all - it was fun (and very old school in a way) as events unfolded!
Jim, from the thread title I thought you were thanking the C300.
If I were you I'd be thanking Canon too....:)
Mike Seymour: great description of the event, and many thanks for posting updates last night. I was looking over your shoulder all night.
Just curious about the history and how the reasoning has developed at Red; When Scarlet was announced for the first time remember thinking that the DSMC concept involved deliberately a hole for Red One as a 4K camera. In other words, it appeared like it did not make sense to introduce a (plan for a) 4K Scarlet instead of the 3K one as that would have rendered Red One obsolete. But now, three years later 3K capturing targeting to HD and 2K delivery is also not-the-future, and hence, the obvious decision was to go to 5K capture and 4K delivery, and furthermore, Red One was given the position it deserves as the celebrated first generation Red camera?
You made it all worthwhile for us that couldn't be there or see anything. I followed your tweets the whole time. Other than being slightly frustrated that I couldn't get red.com to load having the info streaming out in real time eased the pain. This morning my first Red product was ordered and is sure to be the first of many.
To Jim, congrats on a perfect "Red Style" product launch. There always has to be a touch of drama for these things for Red, it keeps it real and gives Red their character. We don't need to to go perfect like Canon, that was boring.
Thanks again everyone that was there making it happen!
How many Scarelt's were ordered?
