I'd bet that Gates are hoping that the Scarlet will fit into the EPIC housing. It would certainly save a fortune on development costs that's for sure.

Cheers, Simon

Done mine ordered as well with a Red mote, I actually thought it was the same body as Epic due to all accessories for Epic being interchangeable with Scarlet, so fingers crossed re a housing, but I have a guy here in Oz who is doing something pretty cool with housings so there could be a few options.




If it doesn't overheat. :) Imean if the 7D and 5D2 overheat, what chance does the Scarlet have of being cooler?

My personal preference is to get a custom housing so I can fit a Ki Pro Mini or Atomos Samurai in there. Then one can do everything in Pro Res proxy then convert from R3D later. R3D requires Red Rocket to transcode otherwise it's a looooonnnnnggggggg process even on 12 core computers!


Just saw a test with the Samurai and and Epic, and it worked like a treat.

Hey Jonny
Is there footage of that test some where online or did you see it first hand.
Thanks

1: Can the Atmos Samurai use the SDI Flag to start & stop recording? i.e. start recording when the camera starts to record. Record signal transmitted via the SDI interface
2: Can it also accept external time code?
Thanks

Yes, there is a SDI Trigger. It's also Genlock capable. It's even got lanc capability which gives more options for housings.

LOL when RED said they were bringing a Bazooka to a knife fight for once they really were not exaggerating! Makes the Canon announcement look rather lame...

I'm a bit worried that Gates had no announcement of a housing for Scarlet. You would have thought given all the hype leading up the Scarlet announcement that *IF* gates had a housing for it they would have been shouting from the rooftops about it.

Anyone have a link to the gates Epic housing because i can see no reference to it on the Gates webs site.

It would so cruel if Scarlet gets no housing!

I think you'll be pretty safe. If Gates makes one for the Epic, I can't see why they wouldn't do so for the similarly sized Scarlet, which uses the same Redmote etc. I remember they were talking orders for Deep Epic (if my memory doesn't fail me) a few months ago.

I don't see any reference to a deep epic on the gates site. Is there anything on the web anywhere about the epic housing from Gates?

I've been waiting for Scarlet for a loooong time now - now its finally here and no mention of an housing from any manufacturer. I sure hope they start coming out soon. I don't want to pull the trigger on the Scarlet until i know housings are available for it. I reckon this is going to run 50+ K for the camera/lens/housing/lights

Decompressing from DEMA now, heading back to SD.

Pics of Scarlet look identical to EPIC. That means EPIC-X, EPIC-M and Scarlet are supported and interchangeable in DEEP EPIC. Confirming with RDCC.

Orders for DEEP EPIC are being taken. $1000 deposit.

Pheww that's a relief !

For me its only Scarlet and only Gates - nothing else will do!

To answer my own question in my last post, yep a quick Google brings up tons of info.....to be honest I'd given up on Scarlet ever arriving so have not been following any of this - you can only get hyped so many times!

Anyway, its real and its here. If Gates come through we are all set to go. Good thing is i have had long enough to save up the money ;-)

Thanks John. From my handling of the Scarlet, the components are the same except for the big vent bulge on the top of the Epic. I doubt you'll be cutting it that close so it'll be fine.

Yes, just under, and includes:

* DEEP EPIC housing
* External monitor (your choice of 5.6" or 5")
* Integrated REDMOTE Controller
* FP80 or SP80 Port (acrylic)
* PE286 Port Extender -- covers most lenses used. Longer / shorter available, price slightly different
* Seal Check
* Travel case(s). We're working hard to get the main housing case under the airline travel limit of 50lbs (US).

Delivery: I expect shipments will start in December, and we'll start clearing our backlog. If you order now, expect February delivery.

Question to all: a mechanical and servo zoom options are available. For manufacturing planning sake, I'd like to know your preference.

What lenses are covered? I assume the list for Deep Red is applicable? What about the Zeiss LWZ? Or is that a per request basis?
