    Pretty sure FPGAs use firmware to change their function, not software (though that might be semantics).

    I gotcha... But in that case, who has patented 16bit (compressed) raw? Canon? Nikon? Sony? And does RED infringe on that, being that their redcode patent is for 12bit?

    Touche. Granted, two coulda been connected in series to get 14.8v. Also doesn't explain why, if left to sit for 3~4 weeks, RVs loose 33% of their holding capacity... but I digress.

    My general rule of thumb for compression for mission critical is to use the K:1... so if shooting 6k, 6:1 is aces. 4k 4:1... 8k 8:1, etc.

    Yeah, I know. Im actually wondering if the UrsaMini ones would work (it should, since the EF flange distance is the same, and there are no obstructions.)

    If its anything like the P4k, it actually has nicer roll-off/cleaner DR than Dragon IMO. At 800 its got even over/under and is cleaner than STH at ~500... oh, and it does 6K 50p at 3:1... and...

    The more I think about it, the more I wish it was RF (or some kind of universal BMD mount)... Would've pre-ordered without question.

    If Komodo has Dual-Pixel AF, I'd definitely be interested. If an LP-E6 lasts 1hour/NPF lasts ~3 hours, then I'd also be interested.

    Could also make for some stellar B&W advantages too! (Doubly so because noise on the low end tends to look much nicer monochromatic too.)
