The files behave in much the same way as Raw R3D files in how AFX interprets them. There is a definite grain to the image. Not totally unpleasing. And, while it is a bit sluggish in AE CS6 (more so than 4k R3D) it grades VERY nicely.
The first shot is a saturated bleach bypass type look that has GHrain Killer applied to her face only - via power window. But the other 2 shots are very simple, 2 and 3 GHear grades respectively.
No totally happy with the skin tone in the sparkler shot. I think I may have to tweak the raw a bit more in the interpeter before grading. it just seems a bit muted to me. (I got better results on the tweaks I made for the comparison video linked above)

Edit. I have just checked out the just announced micro four thirds version at IBC. Looks great but it's passive so no iris control through the camera. You need a manual lens like the Voigtlanders.
The good news is with a M43 mount you can put on any lens with easily available adaptors for PL, M, Nikon, Canon. C mount (make sure they cover sensor). It's a much more flexible camera lens wise and makes more sense than the EF version here.

American Cantos is a compilation reel captured in 4K
resolution from a work-in-progress production about the
John Joe Glanton gang of Government hired
scalp-hunters who drifted, sacked, and arbitrarily murdered along the Mexico/Texas Confederate border in the early 1860’s. The project is being photographed with the Red One Digital Cinema Camera fitted with traditional 35mm Zeiss and Angenieux cinema lenses with select segments captured with a set of 1930’s era Cooke cine lenses that have been modified and adapted to work with the Red One.
