I'm sorry to those who bought it at a high price and feel ripped off, but in the end you will all benefit by having more RED owners (just like Apple customers immensely benefited when iPods and iPhones were in everyone's hands) cause RED will be a stronger healthier company that can offer modules and add ons for lower prices, because of the sheer volume of customers. like I said the customers are going to go somewhere, and not many people know and trust RED like we do. Everyone knows Sony and Canon. this competition from them at this price point is not a joke that should be taken lightly.
And you think the means to do that is by lowering cost on the brains? Which you think will increase volume of accessories sold? And then, RED can lower cost on those?
If so, I can't agree with this approach. And hope RED isn't planning on such trickle-down economics and instead takes the bull by the horns and LOWERS DIRECTLY the cost of the solution. Period.
101 pages of discussion about a drop in price as though the price reduction is about cameras. And I guess that's understandable since cameras are what RED is primarily known for. But I think the cameras are coming down in price to act almost like a loss leader even though their sales will still be profitable.
All I'm saying is try not to concentrate on one type of product. Think RED SYSTEM. RED Digital Cinema is becoming a company that paints with broad strokes.
RED needs to be direct as its always been. Lower the solution cost, and don't focus on the brain cost alone.
