    I doubt that neither resolution or frame rate changed in the fab process... ;)

    Indeed. At least there is a legitimate engineering reason for delaying the release. Perhaps this will give you further time to optimize the heat output of the ASIC as well.

    Gee, what's left there then... I guess just little things like dynamic range, noise floor and color rendition... oh wait :)

    Re-Quoting you, as now I have also the joy of going to put also the EPIC Monochrome under the knife for the Dragon upgrade, can't wait... Even so EPIC MX sensor is surely capturing some insane images it self... So no rush really, just excited to see how the Dragon Flies and Spitting fire at night, now both in Color and Monochrome... ;)

    That was the first thing that went through my head when Jarred announced the new ASIC. The 3 years since they designed the last ASIC is a lifetime in the tech world. Hardware gets faster and cooler so I think people who shoot a lot of interviews will be jumping for joy once Dragon is out.

    Actually I think it's highly likely frame rates will go up. From what Jim and Jarred have said it seems the ASIC and the chips in the camera are what determine framerates, not the sensor itself. Scarlet and Epic have the exact same sensor but it is the ASIC and chips in the Epic that allow it to have 10x faster frames per second.

    I suspect the new ASIC will be MUCH cooler at 24fps and will probably be able to go well above 100fps @6k. No inside info, just a guess based on how far tech has advanced in the 2 - 3 years since the last ASIC was designed.

    Hello,
    I would like to know one thing :
    When the Dragon will be released what will be the price of the Epic/Scarlet with the Dragon ? Will it stay the same or increase ?
    If my memory is good the price of the Red One didn't change when MX came out... isn't it ?

    Thanks !

    Red One went from $17,500 (M) to $25,000 (MX) for a new camera. You could upgrade you "M" to "MX" for $5,750, if I remember well. That's the actual price anyway...

    The Dragon update will cost $6,000 for Epic. Price still unknown for Scarlet.
