Well to be honest, the footage was perhaps the worst red footage I have seen. May be its the youtube compression or the grading but surely red can do better than that.
But that does not change the fact that the quality gap between low and high end cameras are narrowing down to zero. In a few years the high end camera companies will have to offer ridiculous things, 10k 1000fps etc.

Fail............. The whole purpose of buying a dslr for video is the full frame sensor. For photos this camera can be good but for video its outdated and useless. Its so sad to see the 5d line fail...
a lot of discussions going on about why red took this route advertise their awesome new camera. My take is "ok we gave this camera to a 19 year old kid. look what he did in 2 days. " so imagine what you awesome dps directors can do with this awesome 8k camera. and sold out in 15 mins. pretty awesome marketing for free.
People seem to forget that this footage is coming from 5000 dolar camera. Red Epic Dragon is better for sure but costs 10 times more. You get what you pay for and for 5k this is really good
red dragons image quality is awesome but realistically you would need around 12k-15k to run this system with proper accs. Without a proper super 35 mm sensor this is not a sound investment for a indie filmmaker with all these new cameras coming out everyday, not at this price point.
