    In case you missed Jim's announcement:

    6. We expect assembly of production cameras to begin in modest amounts by early February and full ramp up by early April... before NAB.

    BTW... if we DO do this program, a handful would be shipped in Dec. and more in January.

    Hope that helps... now go eat something and calm down. Happy Thanksgiving. :-)

    Jim

    I'd like to know how many per week full ramp will mean, but I think that gets a woo and a hoo:)
    I make stuff.

    I think the language was "We expect". Slightly less definitive.

    In normal speak, I read that to mean I may have my Stage 2 EPIC in the May/June timeframe. Which strangely enough, was about what I expected!

    Thanks for pointing this out. I couldn't get myself to read the other thread. However, note that he says "assembly" to begin. Not "deilvery" to begin.

    I think the opinions largely differ depending on two unknowns:

    1. How much time difference are we talking about?
    2. What is the additional cost?

    Without at least rough idea on 1. and 2. I don't think anyone can give a meaningful answer.

    Edit: OOPs, sorry I missed Jim's guidance on the time scale, so it is just the matter of cost.

    Can I get a link to the original comment so I can see the context? What program is Jim talking about?

    Jim has just said you are looking at about 45K for handbuilt/custom Epic Brain.
    People can take or leave it, he is offering it as a service to customers.

    After reviewing this thread I am more convinced than ever we should build these machined, hand built bodies. I'll announce a price (probably around $45K just for the brain) and see if anyone wants them. I will probably build some anyway because it is in our customers best interests. We will learn a lot from the process. If no one wants them, I'll keep them for myself... Jim
    A bit out of my league but great for those who can afford it. The great thing about Red is they are looking after all professional users from the indi- guy (me) to the big guys.

    I just wish we had a time scale for the Fixed Scarlet and S35; these are my Epic.

    Great.

    Any information about trade in allowance, execution of Stage 2 or 3, priority in the queue, etc.., or is it still in the works as we speak?
