    There's probably a few of us with preorders for one of these cameras.. I've got a Raven on preorder for our Alta, assuming that it was, as a smaller camera, the best fit for multirotor work.

    But Raven and Scarlet-W are very close in weight and dimensions (both 3.5 lbs for the body alone, both needing an interface add on, Scarlet-W needing a lens mount).

    I'm guessing the larger, S35 sensor in the Scarlet-W would be helpful for intercutting with other cameras on production, and having a familiar field of view for lenses, and its still frame grabs would be a little more useable (13.8 MP vs Raven's 9.9 MP).

    But roughly $4k price difference is a meaningful consideration.
