    Yes, Raw Titanium costs 18x more than aluminum, and Machining Titanium is much more difficult.. its slower to cut and goes through a ton of bits.

    Titanium is actually heavier than Aluminum, but it is much stronger so you can make the pieces thinner to get the same strength ratio. The real win with a Titanium mount is it has a lower expansion with temperature than aluminum does, so your flange distance stays consistent in very extreme variations.

    The answer is "No" 100% of the time you don't ask.

    So, will that change the price of the Epic? Like the price as we know it now is with an Aluminum but if I choose Titanium will I have to add to my costs?

    ...and by the way Jarred, I think it is a good and smart move.
    I must confess I had a full belly on Red when I first received my two Red One cameras.
    I have been quite enjoying working with these cameras for the last two years, I still think there is a lot of room for improvements but on the overall the Red cameras paved their way into the industry.

    Do you have to get an aluminium PL mount with your Epic or can you forgo that for an onobtanium PL or a Nikon or Canon if that's your choice?
    Cheers
