Why are these dudes so happy? Maybe because they're among the first to get their hands on RED's Scarlet-X camera. Indeed, the gentleman in the middle — Tonaci Tran — is officially the first, according to a forum post by RED's President and "Fire Chief," Jarred Land. We'd love to get our hands on the $9,750 device, which famously went head-to-head with Canon's EOS C300 when the two firms had dueling press conferences earlier this month, but it looks like we'll have to be content with Tonaci's demos for the time being. And of course, this makes us wonder: is he being nice, or is he showing off? We bet he's just happy: it has been a long three years (almost to the day) since the project was announced.
