    I want to thank Jim for putting his trust in me. I'm humbled. Thank you Graeme, Jarred and Brent.

    Right now I am reviewing footage I shot this evening at Salton Sea and my jaw is literally on the floor. I shot 96fps 5K full sensor. The amount of detail in these shots is unlike anything I've ever seen. I would say it compares to 65mm 5-perf, but I might be understating how unreal this Epic footage looks to my eyes. And how many people can even shoot 65mm 5-perf at 96 frames per second? None that I know of.

    Here's the camera this afternoon. Epic M #188.

    The detail is stunning, but when you see 96fps COMBINED with this level of detail and image quality, that's when you realize you are looking at something new and different. 96fps is poetry in motion.

    There is so much detail on these shots (which, BTW, proved to me that the Duclos 80-200 is very worthy of 5K), I could actually see these birds taking a crap in mid air.. and shaking the water off themselves. Details I have never seen in any of my footage before. Not even close.

    Congrats Tom! Bathed in those golden rays, I can sense the magic! Can't wait to see you bring the "epic" with a capital E!

    I'm interested to see what you get with your new Epic-M Tom. If I had one it would be machine guns during the day and timelapse at night. But I guess I'll just have to wait.
