Does anyone know where the archives are for reduser.net... when we all speculated what scarlet was going to be, then was stunned with the NAB announcement..?

Most people thought it would be a 2K camera. The 3K sort of came out of left field and blindsided everyone!

Others thought it would just be a lens mount, sensor and a cable to record directly to a laptop, sort of like the the SI-2K mini:

I, for one, thought that Scarlet 1.0 was awesome, so I can't imagine what they'll announce on Thursday!

Totally with you there Jaime. I was so blown away with Scarlet 1.0 that anything beyond that is a ten years worth of christmas presents.

I was really flashed as the 3k for $3k first came to my mind as I heard of the Scarlet. As I realised that it would be from Red, the Guys who made the Red One I belived in but never ever thought to can pay for I loved it(her) right away.

I thought it was the best thing since sliced cheese. The first thing that caught me was 3k for 3k with a 2/3 sensor. Then I learned about its projected DR and was hooked.

Who knows what 1 day, 13 hours, 11 minutes and 30 seconds will bring

I thought it was going to be a 2K camera for about $5,000-$6,000.

(1) 2K, because I saw this trademark several months after it was published.

(2) $5,000-$6,000 because RED was a revolution, and it didn't seem like it could be any better.

BUT THIS ALL CHANGED THINGS!!!

Jim tried to play it down saying that just because they trademarked 3K Scarlet, it didn't mean that it WOULD be 3K as they also had trademarked 2K Scarlet.

From then on I figured it WAS indeed gonna be at least 3K.

Once again, the price was a mysterious thing. The first tip I had that it was going to be around $3,000 was when I posted a poll named "Highest amount of money willing to give if your expectations were met". (http://reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?t=10883) It now redirects you to "scarletuser.com" of course, but in it, a RED employee voted "$3,250"...the lowest option I gave.

I couldn't wait til NAB, knowing the possibilities. Here I am, with the same feeling. I can hardly wait til the 13th.
