Difference between 1080 X 1920 3 chip camera and Epic 5K 1 chip:
Divide 5K by 3 and you get a 1667 pix Epic camera.
The 3 chip delivers 1920 pix, a higher resolution.
Is my math wrong, or did Red make up new ways of measuring pixel count?
The truth will set you free, I think
The main compelling reasons it seems to be in this camera system is the frame size, PL mount, and cost. You would get less artifacts from 3 chips verses 1 chip.
