For those of you who passed on the Scarlet and kicked the new 5Dlll to the curb...you might be in luck. This guy just raised almost $200,000 on kickstarter for his new Digital Bolex. Yes...this is legit....and the Bolex company allowed him to use their name.

Something shot with the camera.
If you hurry and make a pledge of $2,500 and you are the first 100 customers you can get a cam by end of May. Other than that it will be priced at $3,200. Not bad....and even less than a Canon 5Dlll. Sure....there are some limitations in ISO....but this is RAW...which means in post you can really get at least twice as much ISO range than the advertised.
I think this is (almost) everything the original Scarlet should have been.
