    OK. This is the final frontier.

    The RED Dragon sensor needs to be directly compared to 65mm film.

    The Dragon has more resolution than 65mm film when scanned at 4K.

    The Dragon has more dynamic range than film... by a lot. 65mm film has about 14.5 stops. The Dragon has an easy 16 stops... without sweating.

    The EPIC Dragon will shoot nearly 100fps. 65mm film cameras... not so much.

    Cost to shoot the RED Dragon vs. 65mm film... ridiculously not close.

    Dragon should never be compared to 35mm film. It should only be spoken in reference to 65mm film from here on out.

    So you own an EPIC? You upgrade.

    Have a nice day....

    I really can't wait to do the standard "lad girl" and resolution tests with Dragon to demo for some film folks.

    Probably not for the Scarlet if you take Jim's post literally. Only time will tell, be patient, perhaps there is something for Scarlet owners but I haven't read much on that so far.

    And if not, this will be the downside of choosing a 'cheaper' camera. Bad luck on the upgrade front but the Scarlet still shoots beautiful images!

    No more 3k for 3k. 6k for 6k sounds like fun, though...

    Will be cool to see images now...
