Yesterday, on REDUser, Jarred released the in order in which they would roll out DRAGON. He also released some exciting news, they have “slipped HDR-X in when nobody was looking”. HDR-X wasn’t expected until a later firmware update.

** Since BOMB SQUAD has been getting a lot of calls on this, Priority 2.2 is where EPIC-M DRAGON / Early Adopter upgrades would be processed if not part of the “EPIC-M / Early Adopter / Purchased EPIC-X Within 30 Days of NAB” ordering window. No priority between EPIC-X and EPIC-M at this level, orders will be processed by date/time stamp.
