I know the average visitor of this site isn’t a RED user but the newly announced prices at least deserve your attention. For example the camera in the above image is the RED ONE MX, it was the first RED of its kind and it saw a drop to $4,000 down from…$25,000.
The other cameras follow:
- RED EPIC-X: $34,500 down to $19,000
- RED EPIC-M (Monochrome): $39,500 down to $24,000
- RED SCARLET: $9,700 down to $7,950
- Battle Tested (BT) RED ONE MX: $25,000 down to $4,000
This is a big deal for those of us who were considering the last deal on the SCARLET. Now that the RED ONE is approaching Black Magic Cinema Camera territory we will surely give it a good look. This will surely shake up some rental houses but in the end it’s a great push to get better gear into the hands of talented people who can’t realistically afford it. The RED cameras do require a lot of add on gear to make them functional rigs but this is a great start.
