Thanks for your support Jeff, and thanks for friending me on FB Bjorn. Terry, yes REALLY.
RED needs to realize, the Scarlet, though genius, opens things up for a lot of novice and startups (or Dummies). It's a door to a completely new genre of independent users. My first feature film credit just arrived on DVD via fedex at my door today!! It was shot on Red One but not by me. I am not a professional camera man. I am a animator. I got the Scarlet mainly for inhouse green screen and VFX. I got the camera just incase I need to do my own greenscreen. http://www.endtouchmovies.net/ (http://clatl.com/atlanta/sunday-morn...nt?oid=4302866)
The 4K rez is a no brainer, but other than this forum I wouldn't know anything about camera rigs. I see the Scarlet as a hand-held Soliataire film scanner. I have NO CLUE what an over the shoulder camera rig is for until I scoured these pages and YouTube. I saw Ted from RED on youTube saying the Scarlet would be $6K and for anyone who just want Hi-Res photos. Ever since I got the Scarlet professional camera people who want to do their own films are by giving me heck about renting.
Concerning rigs, I personally I don't like to get my hand dirty turning an Alan wrench. There's going to be a lot of keyboard, software VFX Noobs wanting clean 4K plate for Photoshop, AftersEffects or Maya. RED should make our assimilation as smooth as possible. I would gladly pay an extra $2 for the right screws. Apples "Plug and Play" approach is RED should thoroughly consider when it comes to Scarlet clientele. No diss, on the pro camera man. I appreciate the help.
