    Well... the things you can't count on.

    As a reminder, the vast majority of EPIC and Scarlet components are made in the USA and all will be assembled in our Irvine factory. But some components come from offshore.

    We just got word that a few key components that we get from Japan will apparently be delayed for obvious reasons.

    The most significant are some key parts for Scarlet 8X Fixed lens.

    EPIC-Ms are not affected... as we have local inventory.

    The 1st (very small) batch of EPIC-X will not affected as we have local parts inventory. We are scrambling to find alternate sources to minimize any delays to continued EPIC-X production.

    I am quite sure we are not alone in supply chain issues concerning electronics. The world is very connected.

    We'll keep you updated as we get more information. In the meantime, we will continue to hold life as more important than business and pray for the people of Japan.

    Completely understand Jim.

    Maybe now all those who continually demand exact dates will understand why they are impossible to give!

    This kind of transparency... KICKS ASS... so we can all plan our lives and manage expectations. Thanks Jim.

    Feel bad for my friends in Japan... those reactors take weeks to meltdown.
    Lots of uncertainty and continuous after shocks... we are blessed

    My aunt and uncle live in Tokyo. I just found out that they are okay. It is very sad the devastation and tragedy that we've seen happening all over Japan. We will continue to keep the Japanese people in our prayers.

    Thanks so much for the update, Jim. I'm looking very forward to seeing what's up your collective sleeve next month at NAB, and am patient knowing I'll get my Epic-X when you've had time to work out any mfg issues with your Tatoo, Stage-2, and Stage-3 customers! ;-)

    Hopes and prayers to those suffering in Japan...

    We all understand completely - it is a hard reminder that there are much more important things than cameras and production schedules. The scale and magnitude of the tragedy in Japan is really quite hard to comprehend. Here is just one example that shows the scale of this disaster.

    As others have said, its unfortunate whats happening in Japan, and thinking about my scarlet should be the least of my worries. Helping them rebuild should be our main option, since they really are our technology infrastructure in our modern country.
