    Well since I'm in Canada I think it's pretty awesome ... with NAFTA and everything. Plus I'm a dual national, so I've always thought, why farm out work away from your economy especially when you can do a better job at home. If it's possible, keeping it in house makes perfect sense to me!

    I'm 100% for not having your camera made out of lead-laden plastic by an unpaid 9 year old in China.

    But honestly, the products coming from Nikon's Thailand plant are very nice quality and it's hard not to wonder how affordable Scarlet could be...

    "The camera is arguably one of the most important of all inventions… it is the single tool that has the ability to stop time, record history, generate art, tell stories, and communicate messages that transcend language like nothing else ever conceived."

    "Everything in life changes... including our camera specs and delivery dates..."

    While working on The Amazing Spider-Man [the first movie shot on Epic], I had the opportunity to see a bit "behind the scenes" at RED. What they've built right here in California is astonishing. Manufacturing in California [or anywhere in the States] doesn't only apply if you're creating certain types of products, moving certain volumes [or lack thereof] or charging a particular price. They've set a refreshing manufacturing example that I wish more companies would follow.

    and what is the business/process advantages you see to manufacture it in the US VS in an other country like China, Switzerland... ;-) ?

    True. And that has left Germany with a lot of infrastructure and competence everytime the economy has gone bust.

    guys who dont value that the red company creates jobs in their home country,
    shouldnt be allowed to buy red products imho.
    especially the guys screaming scarlet is too expensive.
    someone who cant see what great products for very affordable prices red builds + giving 400 guys and ladies a job they can rely on and make a living, should get on the bad attitude list.
    my opinion.
    applause from me for building the cams in the US.
    red is not a color, it's a camera.
