Default DSMC Ti PL and Canon MOUNT itself at the same price ???

Well, here is the thing, If you buy a scarlet with PL mount you gonna pay 11250$ and if you buy a a scarlet with a Canon mount you gonna pay 9750$...

Why not...

So if you want both mount and you take the scarlet with PL mount + Canon Mount itself you will pay 13250$... so far so good...

now, you buy the scarlet with Canon mount + the PL mount itself you will pay 11750$...

Both PL and Canon mount sold itself cost 2000$... So basically, you save 1500$ taking the second option for exactly the same products...


Am I missing something here ?

The Canon mount included in the base package is aluminum alloy. The $2k Canon mount is made from titanium like the PL mount.

Which, as I understand it, makes a huge difference to the life expectancy of your mount. This is especially true if you plan on using very heavy lenses on your Canon mount.

Red has said that they plan on making the aluminium mounts available for $500 at some point in the future.

Besides of life expectancy - aluminum is susceptible to temperature variations - so with the RED ONE we had quite a few problems lenses locking up or getting loose...

This - I believe - is the main reason Epic ships standard with Titanium mounts...

Interesting. That definitely sounds like another very good reason to go with Ti mounts. Thank you, Peter.

Ti mounts can support heavier lenses without rails too.
