Launch time-frame still remains unclear

Red has finally allowed a member of the general public to try out a prototype Scarlet camera that will arrived on the market in fixed-lens form. Company representative Jarred Land reportedly showed off the upcoming camera at Red Studios during the Santa Fe 3D Workshop. Aside from the fixed 8X lens, the camera was outfitted with a five-inch display.

Jannard recently admitted that the Scarlet should not have been targeted at the consumer market, as the base price has been raised by $1,000 to bring a high dynamic range feature initially tested on the higher-end EPIC cameras. The new system is said to support up to 18 stops of dynamic range, while also producing a more natural motion blur effect.

The HDRx upgrade brought the tentative pricing for the body-only model up to approximately $3,750, while the fixed lens brings the price up to $5,750. As expected, a launch time-frame remains unclear and the design has yet to be finalized.
