As posted online by RED's Jarred Land:
"Many of you may of heard the news from Japan today via the IHS ISuppli chain summit, that the Electronics Supply Chain is expected to recover in late August / early September, and I am happy to confirm that our suppliers are finally reporting to us a very similar message.
For those of you that may of missed the news:
Granted.. we have been told various recovery dates over the last 3 months that have never panned out, but we are incredibly optimistic that the train has finally been put back on the tracks and we will be able to begin shipping EPIC-X cameras at the end of August with full production in the first 2 weeks of September.
As you know, we have been at the mercy of suppliers since March, but we haven't been standing still.... Our assembly lines and assembly staff in Southern California have been built up to full capability and once the parts hit our docks, we will be able to build a tremendous amount of cameras in a short period of time.
I can also offer some clarity regarding the EPIC-X package, since a few things have changed since we first announced Stage 2.
We have upgraded the package to include a Titanium PL mount as standard instead of the Aluminum mount,, and also upgrade to the Side SSD module as standard instead of the CF side module. The Base I/O module has been discontinued and will no longer be included.
I am happy to say the package price will remain the same.
Previous Stage 2 Package: Brain, PL Mount (Al) , Side CF Module , 5" LCD, REDmote , Module Adaptor , Base I/O Module , Pro Battery Module, 2x REDVolts , Travel Charger
New Stage 2 Package : Brain , PL Mount (Ti) , Side SSD Module , 5" LCD, REDmote, Module Adaptor , Pro Battery Module, 2x REDVolts, Travel Charger"
