    Dropped off on 1/13 received back on 1/27.

    Hour meter and serial number is the same indeed.

    Can anyone tell me please : when one shoots at 5K with the upgraded Dragon-X 6K if the picture looks exactly the same (crop factor, dynamic range) as the Scarlet-W at 5K ?

    Thank you !

    Yup. Doesn't matter if it's a 4.5k Raven, or an 8k Dragon Weapon, if it's a Dragon sensor at the same size, and same compression, it's the same image.

    Thanks !
    After shooting with the Gemini and the Dragon-x with thew new firmware update, I'm personally finding them comparable in the normal ISO range in terms of light sensitivity. I haven't shot both yet on the same project, but just helped shoot an AD for a local college with the Dragon-x and I was SO impressed. In scenes that were so low light, I was able to be in the 250-640 range in a locker room primarily backlit by an Arri M8.

    There's something special about the Dragon sensor and I really feel the Dragon-x makes it sing. I was a little skeptical coming from a Scarlet-W as a B camera to the gemini but feel the Dragon-X could almost easily replace the Gemini for me personally. Although they both have their places...

    I finally signed up for this upgrade and the earliest window is the end of May, I guess I messed around too long.

    Would anyone be able to fill me in on what this upgrade is and its cost?
    I purchased my Dragon X DSMC1 back in August 2018, curious what this is about.

    Do you get a report detailing what they did in the upgrade? I would love to know what parts were fully replaced and what was left over from your SW.
