" Questo Blog lo dedico ai folli. Agli anticonformisti, ai ribelli, ai piantagrane, a tutti coloro che vedono le cose in modo diverso. Costoro non amano le regole, specie i regolamenti e non hanno alcun rispetto per lo status quo. Potete citarli, essere in disaccordo con loro; potete glorificarli o denigrarli ma l’unica cosa che non potrete mai fare è ignorarli, perchè riescono a cambiare le cose, perché fanno progredire l’umanità. E mentre qualcuno potrebbe definirli folli noi ne vediamo il genio; perché solo coloro che sono abbastanza folli da pensare di poter cambiare il mondo lo cambiano davvero. Da "Think different"

RED: le risposte ai clienti sull'upgrade (futuro) a Epic X

RED ha postato tutte le FAQ per i possessori di RED One che vorranno o meno scambiare la loro camera con la nuova Epic X o acquistarla mantenendo la One.

Ecco le opzioni:

  • Keep your RED ONE and shoot great images. Get continual free firmware upgrades.
  • Keep your RED ONE and upgrade your sensor to Mysterium-X for $4500.
  • Trade your RED ONE in and receive $17,500 credit towards the purchase of an EPIC X S35 Private Reserve package, which is only available to RED ONE customers.
  • Trade your RED ONE in and receive $17,500 credit towards the purchase of an EPIC FF35 Pro Cinema “Brain”.
  • Trade your RED ONE in and receive $17,500 credit towards the purchase of an EPIC 645 Pro “Brain”.
  • Trade your RED ONE in and receive $17,500 credit towards the purchase of an EPIC 617 Pro “Brain”.
  • Keep your RED ONE and purchase a Scarlet System (one time only) with a 12% discount.
  • And additionally,
  • Keep your RED ONE and buy an EPIC X S35 Private Reserve package at the $28K offering. The EPIC X S35 Private Reserve package is ONLY available to RED ONE owners.
  • “Use one time only”. Any selection of #3-#8 causes your RED ONE to be marked “Executed” and will no longer qualify for an additional consideration, including discounts, trade-ins or special packages.

Is the upgrade program to EPIC X only available to current RED ONE owners?
The EPIC X upgrade program is open to all RED ONE owners, present and future. There is no cut off date set for the upgrade program.

As a RED ONE owner, how long do I have to make the decision to upgrade to EPIC X?
The period of time that a RED ONE owner may upgrade is indefinite. There will likely be some point where the offer is withdrawn, but it will be far enough into the future that any owner that is considering the switch will have had plenty of time to take advantage of the upgrade.

What are the details of the EPIC X upgrade program?
The retail cost of an EPIC S35 Brain is $28K. EPIC X is a limited edition version of the EPIC S35, housed in unique Titanium colored side panels and packaged with 3 key additional modules, the RED Battery Expansion Module, the RED Media Module and the RED I/O Module. The package price of the EPIC X and all three modules is $28K, the same as a standard EPIC S35. The RED ONE owner, present and future, is exclusive in their ability to participate in the program and has two options towards upgrading to EPIC X. One, is to trade in his/her RED ONE, receive a one-time $17.5K credit, and pay an additional $10.5K and receive an EPIC X. The other option is to keep ownership of one’s RED ONE and pay $28K for the EPIC X package. In either case, the serial number is noted as an “Executed” upgrade transaction.

I understand that the RED ONE owner has the option of upgrading his/her sensor to Mysterium-X and that the charge is $4500. Can a modified RED ONE with Mysterium-X modification be used to upgrade to an EPIC X?
Yes, the Mysterium-X upgrade does not preclude upgrading to an EPIC camera at a later date.

Is the upgrade program for RED ONE owners limited to or specific to just the EPIC X?
A RED ONE owner can upgrade to any EPIC camera; EPIC X, EPIC S35, EPIC FF35, EPIC 645 or EPIC 617. The upgrade is a one for one program and the serial number is marked as “Executed” upon completion of upgrade.

When the time comes for me to upgrade to EPIC, either by trading in my RED ONE or using my RED ONE as a coupon towards EPIC, am I limited to the number of EPICs that I can purchase?
The RED ONE customer may purchase as many EPICs, at full price, as they want.

What is the upgrade path beyond EPIC X? Can I upgrade to Monstro at a later date from EPIC X?
With Epic, the customer can upgrade indefinitely, due to the modular concept upon which it is based. EPIC X uses the EPIC S35 Brain. Surrounding that brain and forming the camera are the REDmote control interface, RED Battery Module or REDhandle, RED I/O Module, Finders, LCDs, RED Mounts and a collection of peripheral support gear that comprise a working camera. This modular system allows the user to remove just the brain and replace it with future sensor/electronics packages, without having to give up all of the supporting accessories. The cost of the new brains will rest on the customer, so that RED can stay in business and continue building industry leading cameras. The offer to RED ONE owners of a full credit towards EPIC is a promise made to support the philosophy of “Obsolescence Obsolete” and is a one-time opportunity. It is given because of our commitment to our customer for his or her loyalty, and because our vision of a modular upgradability with EPIC could not evolve based on the RED ONE form factor.

What accessories are compatible between RED ONE and EPIC?
All RED EVFs, RED LCDs, RED Brick batteries and RED Chargers, PL mount lenses and external RED RAID and RED Flash Drives are compatible between the current and future systems. Exceptions would include the RED ONE CF Module, bottom mounting hardware (dovetail/bottom plate), RED Top Mounts or any component specific to the shape of the RED ONE. Anything connecting via signal or power path is fully compatible.

L'offerta di Jannard e soci sembra allettante per i possessori della One, praticamente si riprendono i soldi della RED One per aggiungere la differenza con la EPIC X, formato cine ovviamente. Ed anche lo sconticino per averle entrambe non è da buttare. Quindi alcuni priviegi per i clienti che hanno "aiutato" e hanno creduto nel progetto RED.
Quelli della RED insomma, fanno parte di quella generazione, non certo giovane, che quando si muove, ragiona, costruisce, lo fa con la filosofia che condivido e che ahinoi è completamente assente nelle generazioni precedenti e in alcune di quelle seguenti... V for Vendetta forever!
