Hi, curious what you guys think of Scarlet-x compared to a modern mirrorless cameras, and if it's still a solid cinema camera for 5K package?

The Scarlet is designed for video rather than stills, so it will out-perform most still cameras in that regard. I'm not a huge fan of Reds but you have superior CODECs, appropriate OLPFs and much more flexibility with the image due to its pseudo-raw capture. I saw a shoot-out with a Scarlet and I thought the Scarlet was more natural looking than its similarly priced competitors even though it had slightly worse rolling shutter. I don't see any need for 5K though, considering the world is still largely HD and 2K.
