    Ha ha. True that. Thanks for the reports, particularly about the Uniq optics and Zeiss Compacts. First time I heard that the Compacts felt cheap - but coming from you I trust that there's merit to that evaluation. I wonder who makes Uniq lenses - I guess I can find that out on google later.

    Yeah, it would be interesting to find out what kind of glass Canon actually intends to put on any APS-C sized video camera - probably something like their great 2/3" broadcast lenses but with a much more limited zoom range so that the lens isn't HUGE because of the larger APS sensor. They got a lot of things to work out I guess. I don't think we'll see such a camera until 2010 because theres so much to work out.

    As far as I could gather, it sounds like its just gonna have an EOS mount like the 5D.


    I would like to have another look at the compact primes, I suspect that the warmth from the camera made the lenses feel worse than they really are. Also I dont like how the front element slides in and out as you focus. Really drives it home that its a rehoused SLR lens....

    but it has a VERY nice iris, and the Uniq lens I saw had a slightly wonky one (one of the blades was in the wrong place giving it a lopsided hexagon shape)

    And so we have an opportunity for a machinist to ... make a few bucks ...
    (but if you got the Canon lenses, they're better than Nikon any day)

    Hey guys,

    just so you know, it was not the Scarlet, but the EPIC-X that was shown @ IBC by Jim and Jarred, both Brains, and they are ready to go, but still not working and awaiting for the ASIC, to be fully functional.

    You can find the Original thread about EPIC-X @ IBC here, you also find few fantastic 360's of the Brain itself and the Bomb EVF, just follow the link: http://reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?t=34492

    Oh I was told that the one Jim had was the Scarlet brain.

    My mistake.

    From the words of Jim at reduser RECON:

    "Details of the release schedule for EPIC and Scarlet coming sometime in October. We are taking our time so you won't be disappointed."
