    Although I am all for the Monsto sized sensor, I'm somewhat confused as to what sort of usable aspect ratio you can get from the Monstro for theatrical or television productions. I can certainly understand how Monstro sensor sized would be beneficial if you're shooting with anamorphic lenses but will traditional anamorphic lenses even cover a full-frame Monstro sensor? Otherwise, what sort of realistic aspect ratios can you work with? Once you crop the frame to a 16:9 or 1.85, what are you really gaining over the Epic-X?

    ONE to TWO stops MORE dynamic range!

    WOW! Great news (to me)

    So the R1 will live forever! I love this! I thought he MX was as good as my R1 would ever get, LOVELY!

    I will obvioulsy get the Epic, and with current specs I am aiming for the Scarlet monstro to go with my Epic and RED-MX.

    Monstro vs M-X are just designations for different sensor designs/tech, either could be made whatever size Red wanted (within reason). Monstro is already planned to appear in FF35, 6x4.5, and 6x17 formats.

    Interesting thing is, Monstro has larger pixels then MX so I don't think you could fit 4.5k in a RED One. Maybe not even 4k. I'm sure someone will do the calculations on this hehe.

    i believe jim was saying red - 1 can be traded for epic-x or Epic-monstro

    but if you keep your r-1 and get epic-x the r-1 is executed and can not be traded for epic-monstro

    but i dont believe they mean R-1 monstro

    He Lee,

    I talking about the FF35 Monstro sensor. Unless you're shooting anamorphic with lenses that will fit that FF35 sensor, I don't see where you would be able to use all that vertical resolution. I can and likely will appreciate the added horizontal real estate.

    I'm just trying to make a more informed decision if I want to go ahead and get the Epic MX or get the MX for my R1 and wait to trade-in for the monstro. If it's too far away, then maybe I'll trade up for the Epic because I love the modular, lightweight design. I can finally put away my canon still camera and have everything in one package.

    (By the way, is there an Epic Mysterium X FF35?)

    I'm good with 13.5 stops and the low light as it is. But considering Jim's track record, I can imagine monstro is going to be MONSTRO in its abilities. R1, MX, and Epic continues to get better and better.

    I'm thinking between the additional bits you get with EPIC X, along with possibly another 12 months to Monstro, Stage 2 is looking mighty fine right about now!

    I would rather be shooting in a few months, and have saved on additional modules than wait.

    To each their own but Epic is just that, EPIC!
