As a DP and Producer who has worked with RED on countless occasions since spring of '08, I anxiously awaited the release of one of their cameras that would fall into my price point. This past November, I ordered my first RED camera, Scarlet #176.
A lot of people on the forums have called Scarlet "a starter drug", and I would have to completely agree with them. The past months have truly solidified my views on RED as a company and as a philosophy. I know my next step is EPIC, I just don't know how or when…
With the Dragon upgrade coming up soon (and the lack of tech specs for the Scarlet upgrade), I thought it might be interesting to see a Scarlet MX to Epic Dragon upgrade program in the mix…or something similar. Would anybody else be interested in that or something along those lines? What kind of specs and price point are you thinking? Should there be a discount for those who ordered before 12/31/2011? What other upgrade options are you thinking?
Not planning on doing this anytime too soon, but wanted to get the conversation stirring for the changes we'll be seeing over the next year. I also want to know how much money I should be saving:)
Thanks for your time.
