I was wondering what people would have paid for Scarlet if there was no Red One.

This strikes me as a dangerous poll. What are you begging them to increase the price? :)

There are too many differences between the two markets. That's like asking "how much would you pay for an HVX200 if the Varicam didn't exist".

Scarlet isn't a "poor man's RED." It's it's own thing, aimed at the HVX, EX1, XHA1 crowd. The real question should be "How much, given the current specs, would you pay for Scarlet if you didn't know the actual price?" In that case, I could've easily seen Scarlet going for $6K or $7K, but the existence of the RED ONE doesn't affect how much I'd pay for Scarlet.

It'll be interesting to see what people say here, though! :cheers2:

3k for 3k is my vote.

Actually the announced price point from Red at NAB was 3k for less than 3k.

I think if it in the opposite sense,...now I know the Scarlet is targeted for less than 3k, how much would anyone spend on an EX-1, A1, HVX200a or HPX170?

That is what the big boys should be afriad of, come 2009.
