Seems like Sony is ready for the Battle.
With a launch of a99 Full Frame 10bit Raw DSLR, Sony came up in competition with Canon and Nikon last month. And last with Sony declared war on cinema cameras with the announcement of two new models F5 and F55. On the event Sony also announced a 4K Raw recording interface, which was something really awaited for.
On the other hand, RED has dropped price to fight back Sony.
Here’s the new price of RED:
5K EPIC-X Brain- $19,000
5K EPIC-X Monochrome Brain- $20,000
5K EPIC-M Brain- $24,000
5K/4K Scarlet Brain- $7,950
4.5K RED ONE M-X Battle Tested- $4000 (includes SSD recording module). The RED ONE is End of Life. Battle tested is all that will be available from here on out.
Let’s hope this war gets even bigger and their products get even cheaper. Also not to forget, those price for RED products will only bring their brain home, you do need various other accessories to make it a package ready to shoot.
