    I was out in the countryside for a week, but here i am again ;-)

    Re: Touchscreen - you can, but do not have to use the touch screen. The settings can be accessed with traditional buttons too if one prefers those.
    Re: Playback - the on-camera playback feature isn't enabled yet, but will be on a later firmware version. The cameras out there now are still using beta firmware.
    Re: Using 30-40 cameras - multiple crews shooting multi-camera stereo scenes simultaneously + backup cameras for those... it all adds up quickly.
    Re: Scarlet pricing - the latest estimated price announced by Red for ready to shoot Scarlet is still around 6000 bucks, not 10 000, thought it too might change for the worse of course.

    I think it's out of the niche market, and into the professional film making market. If you're going to make a film with a substantial budget, Red Epic is one of your choices. You could go with a Panavision and shoot film, you could go with an Arri Alexa, you could do like the director of Black Swan and shoot super 16 with a Canon 5d for b roll.
    40!! Can you link me to the article that says that? Wow I wonder if they are planning on destroying some in stunts.
