If the RED Scarlet was your dream camera but just out of your reach, you might want to take a look at this deal. While they last, RED is selling several Scarlets for only $7100, which is a significant reduction from the standard $11,900 price point.
News of the deal came from RED’s Jarred Land in a forum post on REDuser.net:
I can’t tell you much about it.. but we just did a massive project with a need for a pretty special 3 second shot, so they rented a whole truckload of Scarlets from us … more Scarlets than most people have seen in their lifetime.
None of them had more than a minute of record time. We can’t sell them as new.. and the rental was good.. so we are giving you guys a one time break on these as ” Battle Tested ” Scarlets.
$7100 instead of the regular $11,900. Scarlet Brain, Side SSD and Canon Mount. And because I know someone will ask, you can’t swap the mount to a Nikon or PL for this deal.
So, the cameras are very slightly used and get a $4800 discount on that less than a minute record time. Head on over to RED’s website if you want a piece of the action.
