RED Scarlet is officially announced with a $10,000 starting price

The RED announcement will be made online at exactly 9pm New York City time. However, due to technical problems, the RED User forums are not loading (that's where all the details are)... Waiting, waiting, waiting (feels like the old dial-up days?)

+ specs recap at Cinema 5D and long and winding post about all of today's announcements by Philip Bloom

+ stay tuned to the Scarlet User forums for upcoming details. We will update this post later tonight. The live-blogging marathon has ended!

+ I still haven't found the detailed specs...

+ finally, official news at the Scarlet User forums. Includes a handy FAQ on the camera. It looks like they setup their site on a different domain/server?

+ The Canon Mount Package will go for $14,000 and include the Scarlet-X Brain, DSMC Side Handle, 5" Touch LCD, 2x REDVolts, REDVolt travel charger, REDMAG 64GB and RED STATION 1.8 and will ship December 1st

+ PL mount users will get a similar bundle for around $15,500 with a November 17 ship date

+ a summary of the various tweets at This Is My Verge

+ pictures of a slides shown during a real-world presentation are making the Twitter rounds at #r3d and #Scarlet... The RED price is making the Canon price look very greedy in the eyes of a number of Twitter users


+ still no luck getting to the REDUser forums...

+ the Twitter people (see hashtags below) are saying the RED Scarlet will go for just under $10,000 with Canon mount, that's half the price of the new Canon Cinema EOS C300

+ Twitter peoplez say RED said: "5K Still and Motion Camera. Epic's little sister"... 5K to 12fps, 6fps hdrx, true 4K at 1-25fps, 12fps hdrx.

+ there is a short video circulating but that's a pre-announcement CGI teaser

+ some twitter people who saw the servers pre-crash they say it is not 2/3" and it is not 3K. But what is it???

+ the next best hope is #Scarlet on Twitter

+ RED forums website having loading problems... RED.com is loading slowly but it doesn't have new information, it is still pumpkins...

+ RED has set up a placeholder thread in their forums saying news is coming at exactly 9pm New York City time

+ the upcoming RED action and discussion will likely happen in the Recon forum, that's where their CEO starts threads
