    Many people want to know what's up with EPIC and Scarlet production.

    EPIC-X. We are frantically working on finding solutions to supply chain issues created by the tsunami in Japan. We have found alternate sources (as have all of the other major companies) of parts that were exclusively made in Northern Japan. All of us are just waiting and in line for these parts and pieces. It appears that a solution to the supply of these parts will allow production of EPIC-X to begin in earnest in June. We have a full production facility and 98% of the components ready and waiting to rock as soon as we receive these parts.

    EPIC-M. We are making machined body parts and purchasing individual parts and pieces at extraordinary prices now to continue production of EPIC-M.

    Scarlet continues to be an issue due to the fact that lens components from Japan are causing an issue and we aren't quite sure how long it will take to resolve. We will update as we have more info.

    In the past we were late due to our own issues. Now we are late due to issues beyond anyone's control.

    Thanks for the continuing info Jim.

    Just wondered, does Epic S share those same 2% of hard to source components, or either way is it only a priority once X production is underway?

    Thanks, Jim and team.

    Any ETA of when we'll get a overview of what is included in the Stage 2 package? Are you open for suggestions? (i.e. I'd happily trade in the IO Module for media.)

    I hope that means hundreds of partially assembled epicx's are just standing by waiting for these parts to drop in and off to QC hehe:-P

    thanks for the info.
    is ssd and Evf also related to japan?
    or will this be no problem once epic x is ready?
    red is not a color, it's a camera.

    Thanks for the update ; ) I know when Scarlet comes out it'll be a great day. There is so much going on in Japan it is no surprise AT ALL that production has been jacked up pretty bad. I feel for those that lost their entire communities over the course of minutes..good luck to the Red team in getting it all sorted out as resources permit.

    Hopefully I don't kill myself before Scarlet comes out ;)

    I love RED.

    How goes the SSD and EVF battle? Those two key components would have the greatest effect on Red users/owners right now.
