For $3000 you could practically use it once and throw it away. All the freaking out and complaining and unbelievably unrealistic feature requests I've read on here since NAB...I just can't figure some of you guys out. :umm: I've barely been able to stand reading all this stuff. When Scarlett gets released, I'll snap up six of them for handheld work (if they'll let me buy that many) and be the happiest guy in the world.
If RED gave some of you guys a goose that laid golden eggs, you would:
A) Cut the goose in half to get all the golden eggs at once.
B) Perform laproscopic surgery on the goose so you could look inside it and determine how many eggs were coming so you could take out an appropriate line of credit to buy an Epic.
C) Add genlock, timecode, detachable Lens, wider wings, eight audio tracks, Mysterium X aerodynamic feathers and beak mounted night vision to the goose, then throw it off a cliff to see if it would still fly or plummet to the ground like a brick...or....
D) Chill out, get some nice footage of the goose with your Scarlett, and enjoy the occasional golden egg!
