Question : Will all of this hdr functionality exist within the brain or will it require modulation ?
Based on the shadows from the rocks I also thought it was at least a few hours from mid-day. I can't wait to see what noon along the Equator will look like, but it is all kind of mute, because judging by that insane histogram on the frame there is pleeeeenty of room left to fill.
Looks very similar...

I agree with the poster that said they don't really care since you can get something like a 7D for a pretty modest price and size that will do this job extremely well (shoot stills of high-speed subjects). The only reason I posted what I did was that Jim stated/implied that an EPIC could do pretty much everything. That might well be true for him, and even for most people, but I'm claiming there's still a few areas of shooting in which even a modest dSLR would out-perform the EPIC by a substantial margin. In this case, I'm claiming those areas are high-speed subjects where viewfinder lag will cause difficulty in finding the subject in the viewfinder and keeping it there, and subjects that are moving quickly through the depth-of-field where predictive phase-detection autofocus is invaluable and not available on any RED camera.
Like I said, this looks like quite an interesting system for many other shooting situations, especially those for which it was really designed - cinema/motion/video.
Yeah makes sense Lee, I was thinking about manual focus where it'd be comparable. Ha sometimes I forget that Epic and true cinema camera will have AF abilities. I think where Epic will really shine is in the fashion/advertisement world where shoots are very expensive and talents time is very costly/valuable so even though it's not MF its positives will outweigh the fact. Not to mention, the Epic's price will be comparable to other cameras used in that field. As you and others have mentioned for many other applications though a DSLR may make more sense.
