Given the interest in the BM Camera and how many users are saying they are going to invest in one I think it's fair to say it will affect Scarlet Sales.
Red resurrects the interchangeable Scarlet 2/3 - 4/3 with Raw Capability and Pro Res / DNxHD for 3-6K Including basic accessories. (Monitor /SSD / 1.8" Station / Side Handle / 2 Batteries + Charge / BasePlate )
Can this be done ? Is this possible ? Who knows ? Most of the work has been done, and Jim has often stated that everything changes.
Can Red produce a 2/3 - 4/3 Camera at this price point and still make a profit ? Or will they just stick with the Scarlet and Epic as is ?
If they do can they be sure they wont loose ground and sales to BM ?
Any announcement has gotta be before the Blackmagic Camera Ships in June / July otherwise these sales are lost and so are the customers.
In this market (price range) I reckon the majority of people buying the camera will have enough money for one purchase only.
One thing is sure if Blackmagic Ships this camera in quantity it's going to take a huge bite out of the 3-10K (Dollar)
Things are definitely moving quickly, hang on to your seats.
