    I know that the Epic MX had its fair share of use, but I was interested if anyone knew of any features that shot on the Scarlet MX? Did the Scarlet just not get as much love because the EPIC was the flagship at the time?

    I don't know if you'll find a clear delineation between versions of Scarlet, but see below:

    The latter thread also has a post suggesting why fewer features are probably shot on Scarlet vs. Epic.

    So true on reasons why some cameras don't get used for most features.
    I have the same problem here in my hometown.
    As cheap and free I can offer, it'll only get used by the same...and in most cases free (Indies).
    You start getting into the bigger budgets and they will have to move towards rental houses for insurance purposes and of course availability.
    Mine got used on a few bigger indies but nowhere near past the 1m budget mark.

    So is it even worth throwing my kit on ShareGrid for the Denver market, or will nobody even care to rent?

    You would need to do some research for your area.
    I'm up in Canada and it's all over the map up here.
    I wish I was in a high market area but then I probably wouldn't be able to keep up with the Joneses.

    I would not in anyway consider Denver as high market. The video/film community is the size of a bread crumb here. Im sure I could get film students at like UC Boulder or something, who knows? I know i'll have better luck renting here compared to my native Chicago... Chicagos film market is huge and nobody would pay to rent a scarlet MX there when rental houses like Panavision, Keslow, and PRG Gear are all there.
