    Scarlet 2/3" is right on the heels of EPIC.

    With orders from a richer RED user customer base and also competitors like an Arri, Panavision, Sony, Aaton, Canon, Panasonic (all they want to see first what is going on there with Epic)...to main world camera rentals it will be about 100 or even more...busy holidays...

    good to hear. Wanted to interject a Scarlet related question but wasn't sure it would go over too well with the Epic crowd ha

    Counting the days, money is in the bank.

    Waiting patiently for stage 3 Epic-X R1 # 4455. :) I already owe the bank way too much money but would love one of those Epic-MMMMMMM's.

    Wait to see how much those are worth in 5 years, look at the #25< R1s. A piece of cinema history.

    - Things usually work out better than you plan. When you`re shooting a film you`re so close to it, it rarely lives up to your expectations while you`re there. You always want it to be better, more perfect. When you see a cut, maybe two or three months later, you come to it fresh. It`s generally much better than you thought it would be" RD

    Jim you are an absolute legend!

    WOW! $58,000 for an Epic-M package and jump a few thousand places in the queue = bargain. I can see those 100 places being snapped up before the end of the week if you started taking orders now.

    To put things in perspective - http://www.abelcine.com/store/ARRI-A...E-SxS-Pro-Set/

    Alexa Kit = MSRP $79,641.00

    Keep on rockin Jim and Team RED.

    All the best,

    Given the opportunity, my Epic M would be put work to work immediately on a Feature in Chicago this January, a tv pilot and several National Ads... And that's just till this coming March.... MX#557 has opened some incredible doors for me, please count me in Jim. I don't post often but I always pay attention...

    Cheers- Andrew

    So you know the price... roughly how many are up for grabs.. and the time frame.
    and as Red "will accept requests/orders and allocate based on history"
    ..go create an order and hit send I guess :-)

    Actually... it is a bit embarrassing for EPIC to be named in the same sentence as the Alexa. A 1080P camera isn't in my thinking. If you want 1080P, take our HD-SDI output and record it to any number of options. But why would you do that?

    The industrial term for a mold is called tooling. The mold is cut on a CNC machine (kinda like a 5 axis router) out of tool steel that is hard enough and stable enough to have molten liquid aluminum poured into it tens of thousands of times in its lifespan.

    It takes anywhere from 30 to 45 days to cut an industrial mold and build it into a production tool. -- They are articulated to aid in the release of the very hot, formed part.

    If you have a Solidworks™ file of the body, you can feed instructions to the CNC machine ( hence: Machined )and cut the camera body out of a billet of metal in a matter of hours. These CNC machines (CNC= computer numerical control ) are expensive and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The downside is you can only get about 1.25 camera bodies out of a single machine in a 24 hour period.

    Molded bodies can be made in a single injection-molding machine at the rate of several hundred a day.

    While the machined part is stronger, the strength is relative to the mission. A cast camera body will stand up to anything you can throw at it. The machined body is overly strong.
    oh wow! thank you!
    did you work on "how it's made" or something? ;-)
