End of Public Enemies posts here. Any more will just get deleted.
Let's get back on track... where were we?
First, let me say that ANOTHER CHOICE, or having ANY CHOICE is just fantastic.
What is critical to me to make my decision is the projected time-frame of R1 to Mysterium X sensors in addition to the projected time-frame of the EPIC-X upgrade roll-out.
We have the very first cameras eligible for Epic-X upgrade but we will also have some of the LAST cameras eligible for Epic-X upgrades - so, clearly we will have Red Ones in our inventory until pretty much every single Epic upgrade is delivered.
The burning question in my mind is ... while I am waiting for my later cameras to be upgraded to EPICs ... can I get Mysterium X sensors into my Red Ones (prior to the completion of all the EPIC-X upgrades). If I can ... I am much more interested in this new option and obviously curious to hear details.
Regardless ... I think it's really impressive that RED is going to present another option for upgrading. It will be truly unbearable to read the inevitable posts of folks whining and complaining about ... something.
At the time frame for about next 6 months I can see that R1 to M-X sensor is only one real option.
We already saw that R1 M-X was used for "Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive 2009: Video" shot by Greg Williams.
Also there is a rumor here at the forum that R1 M-X is going to be acquisition choice for David Fincher's next feature project "The Social Network".
Just in the case that Epic-X is right now ready to roll we would see that new cam in those two examples and many other upcoming productions.
More about all those details about R1 M-X upgrade and R1 to Epic-X trade in program we will get it at October 30.
