RED Camera significant updates and changes:
1. EPIC-Ms are being built at a rapid pace. There is no waiting if you want to buy an EPIC-M starting today Thursday, July 14th. 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.

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.
**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 + $2,000 for Ti PL Mount = $29,500. Same goes for 2012 price of EPIC-X Brain. $34,500 + $2,000 = $36,500 including Ti PL Mount. Sorry about the oversight.
