    Wonder if you could get a Big Bertha Driver and machine a hole in the head so you could put a lens on it and.... no, probably not.
    One camera is a shoot... two or more is a production...

    Is this the recommended mount for the RPPs? Owning a set, I know they are solid and heavy.

    How does Epic's aluminum mount compare to RED ONE's PL?

    Milan,

    to answer you that question I can only quote

    Scottish lens designer Iain Neil* who designed Leica Summilux-C lenses:

    “The other very big technical aspect, without getting into MTF,
    is that these lenses were designed to perform extremely well
    for not only 4K, but also 6K, 8K, and well beyond. Two major
    things (besides distortion and a few other things) contribute to
    picture quality when you talk about camera resolution like 2K,
    4K and so on. One is contrast and the other is resolution. Most
    cinematographers do lens tests by looking at a test chart that has
    black and white bars. You can put up a Baltar, you know, a really
    old lens from the 1950s, and you can say it’s a 4K lens. But there’s
    a difference.“At whatever the resolution has to be for 4K, when you look at
    the contrast, how black the black is, how white the white is, for
    these black and white bars, when you measure it for a Baltar, you
    might get only 30% contrast. You should get ideally 100%, but the
    best you might hope for would be around 90% once you design
    and build the lens. Lenses from 20 years ago, maybe you get 40 or
    50%. And this can vary over the picture, from center to edges. The
    point is, all these lenses are 4K. But then arguments go on over
    contrast—it’s contrasty on axis, but not off…"


    * Iain Neil is an international, multi-talented optical designer,
    currently living in Lugano, Switzerland. He was born in Scotland,
    graduated from Strathclyde University in Glasgow in 1977 with
    a B.Sc. Honors degree in Applied Physics, awarded Alumnus of
    the Year in 2003 and made Visiting Professor to the Department
    of Physics in 2004. Along the way, he won more technical Oscars
    than anyone else, and has been issued or applied for over 150
    worldwide optically-related patents.
    His association with Leica goes back over 30 years. He worked
    for Barr & Stroud Ltd. Scotland (now a division of Thales), as
    Head of Optical Design. The company had associations with Leitz
    Wetzlar. He then was employed at Ernst Leitz Canada Ltd. (now
    Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies Ltd.) as Manager, Systems
    Engineering. Most cinematographers, of course, will remember
    Iain from his eighteen years at Panavision Inc. as Executive
    Vice President, Research & Development and Optics, and Chief
    Technical Officer. At Panavision, his work included the design
    and development of the Primo series of spherical and anamorphic
    lenses, video systems, viewfinder optics, HDTV optical systems,
    compound zoom lenses, and much more.

    At what weight for lenses or temperature environments should this mount be needed?

    Let me guess...

    $2000 for the Titanium mount itself?
    $1500 skip the standard PL and upgrade to Titanium?

    Isn't the Red One Stainless Steel PL mount around ~ $1600?

    Actually.. I'm interested too...
    We tested a longer focal length Leica on the Epic.. and it covered the full 5k sensor.

    Sorry man.. All focus is on Epic right now. We need to get Epic buttoned up and out the door, or there will be no Scarlet.

    So Jarred does this means then when using the Epic-X and RPP 300mm for photography work, this new mount options will be a much safe situation were we don't have to really worry about support?

    Also, sorry again, can we have it Anodized? Or will it only come in the Titanium Silver/Gray?

    I'm such a gear junky that I started thinking about how I can get one of these even though I don't really need it.

    You should always support heavy lenses if you can. And yes.. it will come finished if you want.
