Like many of you, I'm anxiously awaiting the opportunity to say YES to the Epic-X trade-in program. 5K I can take or leave for now, until I know it'll play nicely with Final Cut and Color. 4K at 125fps? Now that's got me goosebumpy. And when 5K DOES play nicely with the above apps, then I'll want to make use of 100fps 5K as well.
The thing that has been bothering me is recording media. The Epic/Scarlet page on Red.com makes mention of high speed CF and SSD modules, but that's all I've heard (read) so far.
I've been tempted recently to invest in a Red RAM or two. The thing is- I don't want to drop that kind of money on the Red RAM unless I can use it with the Epic-X for those higher frame rates. If the RAM is only going to get me 4K/5K at 30fps, then I won't bother, I'll wait to see what the new line of media for the DSMC brings.
So, I pose this question to the SSD-savvy Redusers (or anyone from Red who feels like sharing...) what's the likelihood that the Red RAM could take 4K @ 125fps? Even 72-96 would be nice. And what about 5K?
If this has been discussed in another thread already, please point me in the right direction. My search didn't yield anything.
