Remember when there was that funny Blog post that scared people away from even thinking about buying a Scarlet X camera. How insightful and well researched……Aaaaaah hell I can’t do it. Truth is there are a lot of smart cost effective ways to spice up your EPIC or Scarlet cameras and right now we are guaranteed only the cool kids will sport the bad boys.

Simply scoop up an Epic Scarlet Battery Plate Adapter and Pin Guard and rub it against your new 4K or 5K camera and hey presto instant bad boy. Double NB (Not sure that is even possible, but hey it’s my Blog and I will write what I want) Don’t even think of using an Epic Scarlet Battery Plate Adapter and Pin Guard on a cheap 4:2:2 C300.
