    In 2007 I bought a RED ONE with a 4K Mysterium sensor for $17,500. At that time, just for reference, a Sony F23 (2/3" 1080P sensor) was $175K. Plus SR (RGB) recorder.

    In 2010 I upgraded to the 5K Mysterium-X sensor for $5750 . I am now in for a total of $23,250.

    In 2012 I traded in my RED ONE (credit value $17,500) for a $28,000 EPIC M-X package. I am now in for a total of $33,750.

    In 2013 I upgraded my EPIC M-X to the 6K Dragon sensor for $9500 . I am now in for a total of $43,250.

    Soon... I will be able to trade in my EPIC Dragon for Weapon. God only knows what that means...

    This is Obsolescence Obsolete. As promised.

    I did too and meet a lot of great life long friends along the way, thanks to you and your outrageously awesome co-workers!


    p.s. I also bought an Alexa Plus 16 x9 S/N 4488 in March of 2012 for 110k, but sold in 24 months later because it was old and there was not an upgrade path what so ever and in fact 3 weeks after i bought it they came out with the 4:3 sensor and mine was already outdated and they even came up with a new name for my 3 week old camera....Classic, i.e. the old model....thank god i stayed with red!

    Price aside what you get is creative freedom...those too young to remember what a stranglehold ARRI had on the young creative minds with prices so high that to build a reel cost more than all the upgrades combined, and I am eternally greatful Jim for what you've done to help us be free!!!
