4K for everyone...
from announced specs in 2008. (if not now. then soon with a BRAIN upgrade) I have been lurking on these boards since October 2007 and joined early 2009. I have seen this type of announcement result in a BRAND NEW EPIC. Exciting as hell really.
We can all envy Jim and Jarred and Deanan and Graeme and Brent et all, kicking back at RED HQ and scheming about building the best digital cinema cameras with the best engineers in the world...
what a fun effin job.
All I can say is, and I trust I'm not alone, BRING IT... I am excited for the APPLE reporting model. Awesome that Joseph pointed out that this new "stance by RED" to announce when shipping
was followed by 10 new posts from RED on Reduser.
Just remember to sleep and eat. We will be waiting for the revolution and are excited as hell to be part of the 4K revolution.
Can you all imagine what it will be like when 4k is a small file and ubiquitos>? RED RAY can't get here fast enough Jim, Deanan (wink wink)
Well, I'll hold on then :)
Change is good and someone should always be ready to accept this change flow.
Fluxus means change, among other things.

In general at this state of development for RED could be good to have just two or even just one base camera body to produce.
Those two bodies could offer one expensive high end feature model ($40.000) and one affordable lower end feature camera model ($10.000).
All models upgradeable, ($10.000) for high end and ($5.000) for lower end camera.
High end camera means EPIC-M and EPIC-X with S35mm 5K @ 1-120fps @ 5K sensor,etc,...
Lower end camera means S35 5K 1-60fps, but also 120 @ 2K, etc,...
The main difference between the high and lower model is a sort of assembly production (means the first handmade and the second factory production line assembly),
then comes warranty (handmade assembly of the high end camera model has always a longer warranty time), then recording speed @ full frame recording and some other little things...
Anyway RED like many other companies in the industry mostly earns money selling accessories and lenses.
Both camera models share the same high quality accessories.
Isn't 4k for a 2/3 sensor a little bit overkill? I don't know at which point it becomes too many pixels, but I thought that 3k for the Scarlet was perfect for a reason. If someone with more technical knowledge can correct me, please do it fast, and I'll shut up :)
The Scarlet 3k fixed is perfect for me and I can't wait to be shooting on it this year :) I'd hope that if any changes are made, it doesn't result in another delay.
