It's funny though I always thought that the business model behind RED ONE was that it was modular and upgradeable. There was no need to but an additional camera.
Already there is an upgrade which is double the cost.
I'm sure that the workflows / codec issues will be sorted by 2009 but it is a bummer is you received you cam 6 months ago. I bet you wish they had spent the energy sorting out all issues with ONE before designing EPIC and the 'young SCARLET'
Before this goes into a rip Red thread, I should add that the 30k price tag is a guess. Just like Scarlet's 5k price tag. Nobody knows until they develop the thing. And to get a rebate of the full price of the previous model is unheard of in the industry. The problem with trying to revolutionize the industry with a new product using the similar technology, you run into developmental issues. Early on, I went to a shoot where the Reds crashed constantly. 6 months later, it's stabilized a bit but still no real workflow. The camera had great marketing that's for sure. I mean 4k is really 2.5-3k in real resolution because of the bayer filter but so I expect to fulfill their claim of real 4k they are pushing for 5k, which should net 3.5k resolution. Still for the price, the RedRaw at 3k 'real' resolution still is a great bargain and enough to make filmmakers scream like little kids.
So you might say 1080p HD is "1.875k/16:9". Or just remember that it's 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Or you could just call it 1080p/i.
