Today many questions have finally been answered! A few have speculated that RED wasn’t gonna meet Scarlet-X ship dates Nov. 17 (PL Mount) and Dec. 1st (Canon mount). Tonaci is the first person to receive a Scarlet-X PL and many more have already shipped…
Aside of the Scarlet news this is also a big day for Epic owners. A few hours later Alpha Firmware was released enabling PLAYBACK!
RED has done an amazing job with meeting their dates, wrangling all these orders while growing it’s infrastructure.
It’ll be interesting to see where it’ll take the industry. Almost everyone in the film scene here in Austin knows of someone who placed a deposit. Theres a rough guess of 1,000 or more orders already placed. Once again we don’t really know but from the community this is what we have gathered. I spoke with a film festival coordinator and was told that they received over 3000 feature film submissions and expect it to be even larger by next year. Not really sure what that means other than the competition is higher than ever. Tools do make the job easier but they can’t write you a good story. Let the digital film renaissance begin!
