Red scarlet models available?
on Mar 1, 2010 at 11:17:36 am

Hi,

I am new in this forum. So please excuse my questions.
But which scarlet reds are available at the moment? I would love the 2/3 inch cinema or the 3D scarlet.

Thanks a lot
Charles

Hi Gary,

thanks for the quick response. Please can you tell me which red camera (except red one) is available now? And do you have an idea when the 2/3 inch models could be ready to deliver?

All the best
Charles

None,

It has been publicly stated on RED.com that the Epic models will ship prior to the Scarlet release and that no release date has been set for either.

I have not looked on Red.com for a week or so that may have changed.

That is correct- the only cameras you available to the public are RED ONEs and RED ONEs that have been upgraded to the Mysterium Sensor. Unless you are Steven Soderbergh or Peter Jackson you'll be waiting for a while for any EPIC or Scarlet- maybe this summer, maybe fall maybe next year. Nobody really knows- I'm guessing at this point not even RED...

Maybe I misheard, but I thought at RED Day they announced that the Scarlet 'might' be available in late Spring.

[Illya Laney] "Maybe I misheard, but I thought at RED Day they announced that the Scarlet 'might' be available in late Spring. "

That's funny. When the Scarlet was first announced I heard that it 'might' be available mid-2009.

As much as I like RED, I've learned that you can't trust their development timelines. Scarlets won't be available until Epics start shipping. Epics won't start shipping until Tattoos have gone through a beta/test cycle. Tattoos won't be tested until they ship.

Tattoos are probably at least a month or two out still. Then the test period could be around 3-6 months. Really, I think the soonest Scarlets would ship is about five months from now. And the latest... well I'll leave that up to your own imagination.

Yeah it's a vicious cycle for RED- right now they're knee deep in prep for NAB 2010 and the upgrade program is going a bit slow. So yeah I'd be surprised if we see Scarlets in quantity before Fall 2010, maybe even into 2011. Sad but it's the nature of product development. They are not trying to rush it, which is great for the gear quality, not so great if you want to shoot something today.

During the Red Day Q&A someone in the audience asked about the scarlets release date saying that his funding was going to be pulled if he didn't start production quickly and that the camera release was holding him up.

Jim jokingly responded that if they didn't release a camera by late May he would commit suicide...
I hope that's not the case.

Mike Seymour said they'd have a Scarlet on display at NAB in the Post Pit. I think he said it would be on that Tuesday.

REPLY - I am always amazed when I hear crap like this. No one's movie is dependent on a piece of hardware. You can shoot with FILM !
You can shoot with a Panasonic Varicam (and it will look great). You can shoot with a Canon D5/D7/D1. Can you imagine someone saying "all the Panaflex's are out - we have to cancel the shoot !". You rent an Arri, or Movicam and do your job. No FCP system available, cut on FCP. Can't conform with Scratch? , do it on Clipster. What is the deal with "if I can't get a RED, I can't make my movie, and I can't become a famous director !". Who would base funding for a movie, based on the actual camera available to shoot the film. The story is the movie, not the camera it is shot with. The person that says "I will lose my funding if I can't get the Scarlet" is the same person whose budget is for a single G-Tech drive, and will drop the drive on the concrete, on the way back to the edit room (my movie - its GONE !).

I heard April 14th that's my birthday. It would be nice to get a scarlet then. Has any one else heard that date for release?

Which Scarlet are you talking about? The 2/3" interchangeable, 2/3" 8x fixed, S35 DSMC, FF35 DSMC? There will be multiple Scarlet brains available so don't expect them all to be released at the same time.

And to answer your question...no, there hasn't been any official date for release. I gather someone told you that because the 14th is RED Day in Vegas.

I'm currently developing a documentary project to be shot on DSLR at 1080p, whilst this will be distributed soley online with a further dvd release, it is my intention to utilise the opportunity to raise funds for a dramatic feature to be shot using the Red Scarlet camera (possibly and when they become available).
My concern is this. Whilst digital theatrical distribution would use the full 3K resolution a 35mm transfer would be compromised, as it is my understanding that less than 2K resolution would be visible. Ideally a digital theatrical release would be ideal if possible, but if it were to be 35mm, would this be a viable option. Budgets are limited, hence the Scarlet over Epic S, M or X.
