RED added useful cinematography tools to their website.
With this tool you get an estimated preview of the probable crop factor by entering the focal length of the lens you are going to shoot with and by selecting the frame size.
Jim Jannard announced via REDUSER forum that RED will lower the price for its EPIC camera. They do this due to the fact that they have streamlined and optimized their processes and found better suppliers. Customers that have purchased their EPIC within the past 30 days will be offered a credit towards accessories. Price cut down date will be 1st Nov.
So. We could easily pretend and invent a new model to justify a lower price with higher performance. You are too smart for that. So are we. Instead… we will just lower the price of EPIC.

Get your RED EPIC-X. Stage 4 has just arrived. This means, everyone (not just RED ONE owners) who’s got the money can now deposit 10% of the price for an EPIC-X.
Existing RED ONE customers have been the only group eligible to purchase EPIC-X via the Stage 2, 3, and 3.5 programs. That is, until now. Stage 4 is now open for all customers to purchase the most advanced DSMC® camera in the world.
Capable of capturing 5K resolution at up to 120fps, EPIC-X has been responsible for breathtaking images both at the newsstand and on the big screen. From fashion spreads to feature films, the versatility of our DSMC® camera system allows you to compromise nothing and shoot everything – all with one camera. Purchase a Canon or PL mount alongside an arsenal of accessories to customize your perfect camera configuration.
EPIC-X is now available on RED.com for $27,500 (brain only) or $31,000 when packaged with a Ti PL Mount and Side SSD Module. Don’t forget that both SCARLET and EPIC will experience a price increase January 1, 2012, so be sure to reserve now to lock in 2011 pricing.

We reserve the right to change everything as needed…
Up ’til now, we have said what we are “going to do”.
As of now, that has changed (we promised that everything is subject to change… including our strategy).
We will only announce new things when they are done and ready to ship. That includes Scarlet and all other new products and accessories.
We used to go by “always late but worth the wait”. That will no longer be the case because we won’t telegraph what we are planning anymore. There will be no possibility of us being late. No more “we expect this to be done by…”
From now on it will only be “Here is is and we are ready to ship”.
I think it’s good. No speculative talking and stuff. Just clear statements when it’s done.
