In case you always wondered how a 35’000 dollar camera is shipped, here’s an interesting article by Mike Curtis. Mike has recently bought a Red One and documented the unpacking process a little. 🙂
What he is unwrapping there is the Red One number 417 with a bunch of accessoiries. Worth about 35k$. He believes that one could manage with less accessoiries and get away with just 25-30k$.
The central message of the article: This is a whole lot of stuff in a whole lot of packaging. Better schedule a lot of time for the process. 🙂
The report has over five pages and doesn’t even reach a completely assembled Red One. 🙂 I’m curious for the sequel…
