We had an amazing response to our coverage of the Canon and RED announcements, so many people tried to access the server that we could not handle the traffic (in spite of doubling capacity). This graph illustrates the spike in traffic we saw that forced us to use a twitter account to get the word out.

If you'd like to review the live coverage from the November 3rd events visit the twitter feed @fxguidelive.

We also have an fxguidetv episode #124 recorded after the events and for more in depth coverage listen to The RC Podcast, Episode #100.

Thanks so much for reading our article.

We've been a free service since 1999 and now rely on the generous contributions of readers like you. If you'd like to help support our work, please join the hundreds of others and become an fxinsider member.

    So… I’m here waiting for some live coverage, engadget is not broadcasting, Red web site is crawling along, and this page is not posting live updates. Following on Twitter and having to refresh every minute or so just to get an idea without visuals of the Scarlet.
