Do we know if Mark is the only person who has gotten his Machined Epic? Or how many people ordered the Machined version? As it was finished and shipped last Friday, would these past few days have been enough for RED to make anymore? I believe Jim or Jarred may have mentioned at some point that if the orders were there, they might be be able to make something like 100 before the production line models start? Just don't want to be nagging Mark for footage if there's somebody else we can go after...though Mark may like the attention :-P
EDIT: Though Jim did say Epic-Ms were going by serial #. But, I'm pretty sure Peter Jackson gets his 30 before the serial #s (bummer!! I'd have loved to have rented my Epic to PJ :-)
Shawn, you are presuming that all of Peter Jackson's cameras will be machined instead of actual production models.
One thing I've learned is never to assume anything.
It is also conceivable that all Epics, regardless of -M or -X status would simply use the same linear serial numbering, no? The switchover would simply occur whenever they decide to start mass producing. And aside from the method of creation, they should be exactly the same, right? Same I/O, same electronics...
Maybe Peter Jackson just gets #PJ1, #PJ2, etc.
And you're also not taking into consideration Jim's sense of history. Mark received R-1s numbered 0006 and 0007. I can't imagine a situation where Jim would let him have Epics without those numbers on them.
