    Jim, it looks like HDRx worked extremely well for this particular +3 shot at Salton Sea, where the sun's reflection on the water was blown out. This was done with only one push of the "HDR Blend" button in Red Cine-X. No tweaking, no nothing. Pretty cool. What do you think? To my eye, it looks perfect, like the whole blending process was natural and effortless for Red Cine X.

    Here is the full-size, 1:1 crop image for those who are interested: http://timescapes.org/HDRBlendComparison.jpg

    Thanks again to Ketch, Steve and Jarred for letting me play with Epic M8.

    This is exactly what HDRx was made for. Good job showcasing HDRx.

    This is great for getting more value out of low budget, but I'm glad I don't have 30+ years experience in Cinematography. There are tons of hard won, only through experience secrets and wisdom which are shriveling under this camera's [rejected] glare. On the other hand, greybeard DP's may be yelling 'WAHOO' just like the rest of us. I'm certainly in love with the potential. Thank you Jim...

    Also would you be so kind to give us a short (about three seconds duration) footage @ 96 fps using HDRx™™...
    Yes. I'm working on the video now. But max framerate on HDRx was 60fps, I think. Remember, it has two streams of image data.

    Thanks, Jarred.

    Correct... for 5K. HDRx is limited to half of the max frame rate of a "normal" recording in the chosen resolution.

    yeah obviously not a scientific evaluation by any means, but a good practical exercise esp considering that there was NO discernible area in the hrdx at a tolerance of 1 on a jpg was pretty impressive looking at the comparison ...well at least i thought it was pretty neat :)

    Does this mean, that at lower resolution it's possible to increase the fps - even using HDR?
    if yes, is this true, for the Scarlet?
    thanks in advance
