    Make a pocket Scarlet, discontinue this one.


    My two cents worth.

    Thats all very well! but some people cannot afford an epic at present, people on high looking down shouldn't throw stones. RED has to be commended as it looks after people with lesser budgets to film in Raw.

    If I were to make a bet on the Scarlet upgrade, it would be upon its return an epic camera.

    Feeling like even with Dragon, Scarlet shouldn't have 24fps at 5k which is one of the important specs that sets Epic away from Scarlet.
    Personally I'm way more excited about 16 stops of DR than 24fps at 5K, but it makes sense. New ASICs should be more powerful, so I guess one can expect 24 fps (or even 30 fps) in 5K. Less rolling shutter too, probably.

    Nope.. not looking down at all. Price is important. Very important. But with cheapening technology, you have to really consider the upgrade path and think is it worth it.
    You paid 7 k for the Scarlet body.. you pay 6k for the upgrade (maybe more as Jim Stated) so thats 14k.. for a camera that still only shoots 24p.
    You become so close to having an EPIC for 6k more that does everything you want.

    On a personal level, the scarlet was a good idea a year or two ago.. but now... I don't think so. Only because the EPIC is so cheap now.

    will the scarlet ( with the new updated boards (that jim referred to) ) boot a bit performance ? such as Redcode 3:1 or a even bit higher framerate ?

    thanks

    Personally I'm very happy to have my Scarlet, soon it will have paid off itself....but just to correct the figures: Let's say a Scarlet brain with Dragon Sensor is $14,000-15,000 with the upgrade, but the EPIC is still 19,000 + 6,000 with the upgrade, that's 11k-12k away, not 6k. For some of us still needing more memory cards, accessories, modules, we're better off having bought the Scarlet.

    On a sidenote, I'm curious if non full frame glass will work on the Dragon sensor, has anything been said about this?

    Since everything is improving so fast, at some point upgrading scarlet will make it as powerful as the Epic we know today, and so on...
    Maybe a trade-in program would be easier for everybody ?

    Or an upgrade but not to 6K :
    Epic people upgrade to Dragon, and Scarlet users get the 5K at a better framerate than now...
    Dragon will be something fantastic, but after using it for a while I'd really like to shoot 5K @ 24/25fps with my scarlet. This is not a huge step but it would make a real difference anyhow, people could perfectly match footage with 5K Epic, etc.
    Maybe the updrade premium for we customers would be very affordable.
