Yesterday Jim had the Red fan club globally hanging on expectantly for a major announcement.
What came was probably slightly disappointing for many… the beta release of Redcine-X, which is awesome in it’s own right, and I’ve already begun to play with it.

What was expected was probably something Scarlet related, or perhaps playback to be enabled on the EPIC.
However, better late than never, I found Jim made another important announcement a couple days ago that I came across only minutes ago. That news is the first EPIC-X bodies are expected to start shipping this week.
So what’s the difference between the EPIC-M and EPIC-X?
Not much, nothing to be too concerned about. Components on the M are machined, and hand assembled, while the X components are cast, and come off a production line. Still, if you want a EPIC right now, the more expensive EPIC-M is your best bet to avoid a wait.
