This post will likely be removed but for those whom do read it, i am being genuine and fair.
This is terrifying for me.
x has simple SAVED ME multiple times and I don't know how else to say it. THEY have better delivery, customer service and even products along with price across the board.
You cannot beat that.
This sucks most for us the consumer who needs and depended on x.
Real world situations and productions I have been in a jam 4 times now where I needed accessories as fast as possible and RED was my #1 choice to go to first.
Each time i was not only disappointed but at times felt like screwed.
Either it was on BACKORDER which for years now has been one of REDs biggest disappointments RED is notorious for this.
It would take multiple days to process and get the order shipped even if i paid overnight shipping that did not matter, just shit out of luck.
it was a product not requested by the client as the previous RED products have broken and lost faith with consumers so there have have decided to look in a new direction.
Element Technica used to be the solution but they have focused more on 3D and done very well in their company, good job but no longer are they a direct solution for those of us under pressure to pull a job off.
We all love RED in so many ways and that love far out wins any 3rd party manufacture.
But some of my jobs have only been possible by the help of x
Simple as that.
