Jim posted some words concerning upcoming changes:

I think my tagline says “everything in life changes, including camera specs and delivery dates. Count on it.”

This is more succinct than you can imagine. You should expect a severe change coming… like a tsunami.

This is interesting. A 2K RAW S35 Cam by Kinefinity called KineRAW. This should be the Chinese answer to ARRI and RED. Price should be around  8000,- $. It records 12-bit CinemaDNG or 10-bit CineformRAW. Lens Mounts: PL, Oct19, Nikon or Canon EOS.

Jarred Land wrote some Specs of the upcoming RED EPIC Canon Mount.

  • These will start to ship to customers on September 9th.
  • Deposits will open on RED.COM in the store in the next couple days. Price for the smart Titanium Canon mount is $2000.
  • The Titanium mounts are all machined out of solid Titanium.
  • Current EPIC builds all support Iris control over the mount. An early AF build will be released around the time when the mounts ship. This will include basic touchscreen autofocus.
  • After release You don’t need separate builds for different mounts.. AF support for Canon and Nikon etc. will all be integrated into the ” normal ” EPIC builds, so you can switch from PL to Canon mount to Nikon mount all with the same camera build.
  • Speaking of switching, it is a field safe procedure ( in a clean area ) and literally involves unscrewing 4 bolts and swapping mounts.. Then check back focus ( if needed )
  • The Canon lens mount is “SMART” which means it controls camera Iris, Image Stabilization, and Autofocus electronically, via the various control options with EPIC ( touch screen, side handle, REDMOTE )

Here’s a prototype testing of the HexaCrane by DitoGear:

The construction looks light, but stable. Smooth Motion.

Some news regarding EPIC and so by Jim Jannard of RED:

There are some significant updates and changes that I would like to share…

1. EPIC-Ms are being built at a rapid pace. There is no waiting if you want to buy an EPIC-M starting tomorrow. Supply is limited. Just remember that these are still pre-production cameras and firmware upgrades will be necessary to enable some remaining features. EPIC-Ms have a 2 year warranty.

The EPIC-M program has helped us tune up for beginning EPIC-X production late August and full swing production early September.

2. EPIC-X will ship in the following order… Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 3.5, Stage 4. We will not begin to ship the next stage until the orders from the previous stage have been completed. If you don’t want to wait, buy an EPIC-M.

3. Given the tragedy in Japan, EPIC-X production was delayed. The other side effect is that prices of many things have gone up. Given this, we are announcing a price increase on some items that will take effect on January 1st, 2012. If you have your order and deposit in before Dec. 31, 2011 you will get the old price. Any new orders placed after Jan. 1, 2012 will be charged the new price. Price increases in bold.

4. Stage 2 was changed recently. The newest package includes an EPIC-X Brain, Titanium PL Mount, Side SSD Module, 5″ Touchscreen LCD, REDmote, Module Adaptor, Pro Battery Module, 2 REDvolt Batteries and Travel Charger. $28,000 less $8500 credit and keep your RED ONE. Net price $19,500.

5. Stage 3 will reflect similar changes to the package as Stage 2. Stage 3 package price is $28,000 less $17,500 and trade in your non-executed RED ONE. Net due is $10,500.

6. Stage 3.5 is the same as Stage 3 except you receive an EPIC-X Brain only and not the complete Stage 3 package. Net due is $10,500.

7. Stage 4 is a purchase only of an EPIC-X Brain for $29,500 (includes upgraded Titanium PL Mount).

Additional note: We have discontinued the aluminum PL mount option for EPIC.

Sorry for format… tabs don’t seem to work posting.

Please note: EPIC-X Brain price was $27,500 + $500 for aluminum mount = $28,000. Since the aluminum mount is no longer an option, the current EPIC-X Brain is really $27,500 + $2000 for Ti PL Mount = $29,500. Same goes for 2012 price of EPIC-X Brain. $34,500 + $2000 = $36,500 including Ti PL Mount. Sorry about the oversight.
